Engineering Analysis with SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2015 by Paul Kurowski [PDF]

Engineering Analysis with SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2015 goes beyond the standard software manual. Its unique approach concurrently introduces you to the SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2015 software and the fundamentals of Finite Element Analysis (FEA) through hands-on exercises. A number of projects are presented using commonly used parts to illustrate the analysis features of SOLIDWORKS Simulation. Each chapter is designed to build on the skills, experiences and understanding gained from the previous chapters.

Topics covered:

Linear static analysis of parts and assemblies
Contact stress analysis
Frequency (modal) analysis
Buckling analysis
Thermal analysis
Drop test analysis
Nonlinear analysis
Dynamic analysis
Random vibration analysis
h and p adaptive solution methods
Modeling techniques
Implementation of FEA in the design process
Management of FEA projects
FEA terminology
