“What if?” is the question that fuels innovation. SolidWorks® Simulation software takes the risk out of “what if” and replaces it with an infinite canvas to virtually test new ideas and bring products to market faster.

SolidWorks Simulation is a complete suite of structural, functional, and flow analysis applications for every designer in the product development process. The software is easy to use, yet powerful enough to tackle the most complex design issues. It helps you to predict the performance of your design under real-world operating conditions and to detect problems and correct them before prototyping, tooling, and production. Integrated with the SolidWorks 3D CAD environment, SolidWorks Simulation unleashes your innovation by letting you experiment with new configurations and materials as you design–when innovation is free, but potential gains are worth millions.

SolidWorks Simulation

Design better products with a comprehensive simulation tool

Simulating the real-world response of your design has never been easier. With the full-featured suite of tools in SolidWorks® Simulation Premium, you can reduce the number of assumptions required in a world that is rarely linear or static. SolidWorks Simulation Premium software bolsters the depth and the ease of use of SolidWorks Simulation Professional with additional capabilities, including a powerful set of tools for simulating nonlinear and dynamic response as well as composite materials.

Capture the effects of large displacements on your designs:
SolidWorks Simulation

• Examine the large deformations caused by overloads, contact, and flexible materials
• Transition easily between linear and nonlinear simulations
• Study nonlinear buckling and snap-through events Simulate products made with nonlinear materials:
• Investigate designs with hyperelastic materials, such as rubbers, silicones, and other elastomers
• Conduct an elasto-plastic analysis to study the onset of yield as well as plastic deformation
• Examine creep effects and material changes with temperature Perform dynamic analyses of parts and assemblies:
• Simulate time history loading, steady-state harmonic input, response spectrum, and random vibration excitations
• Input excitation curves of forces in random vibration analysis
• Study stress, displacement, velocity, and acceleration with time, as well as RMS and PSD values for stress, displacement, velocity, and acceleration Simulate composite materials:
Utilize simulation to leverage these advanced materials used in an increasing number of products, from consumer goods to advanced aerospace structures
• Study multilayer shell bodies to examine the effect of each layer with its own material properties, thickness, and orientation
• Use the revolutionary user interface to dynamically control and display ply orientation directly on your SolidWorks model
• Utilize sandwich and graphite or carbon-fiber composites, including honeycomb and cellular foam

SolidWorks Flow Simulation provides unparalleled ease of use for simulating fluid flow and thermal
behavior in and around your SolidWorks designs.
