What's New in SOLIDWORKS SIMULATION 2020 - Free Body Forces in NL Studies

SOLIDWORKS SIMULATION 2020 adds the ability to calculate free body forces at every time step for both non-linear static and dynamic studies.  Free body forces can come from contact, external loads, connectors, and restraints and are important information for design considerations when components go through large deformations and have non-linear material properties.  Having direct access to this information, over the full time period of the non-linear problem can save designers time in manual calculations or expensive prototypes.
