What's New in SOLIDWORKS Simulation
SOLIDWORKS® Simulation solution gives product engineers access to powerful analysis capabilities that help enable them to speed up product innovation.
SOLIDWORKS Simulation solution 2015 offers new ground-breaking enhancements and true productivity improvements for all product Engineers for Structural analysis, Fluid Flow Simulation or Plastic injection Analysis.
LOAD CASE MANAGER
SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2015 provides a tabular input to manage multiple load cases and combine load cases using formulas to account for compound test requirements.
The Load case manager enables product designers to simulate and understand the performance of their product under many different load conditions for a design intuitively.
VIEW NON-LINEAR RESULTS WHILE SOLVING
For nonlinear analysis, having to wait until a solve has finished before being able to check that the model performed correctly can consume a large amount of time and slow down the design process.
In SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2015, you can now view intermediate results steps while solving, making it easy to review progress and immediately take action if changes need to be made without waiting for it to complete.
SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2015 now offers the ability to easily review, define and modify shell properties in a convenient tabular interface.
You are able to sort and visualize properties of all shells defined in the model, even from sheet metal parts. To make thickness or material changes easy to multiple shells, you can use groups to assign common properties. This greatly reduces the time to modify models as well as minimize errors in definitions.
ROTATING MESH REGION
Rotating Mesh Region capabilities in SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation 2015 enable Product Engineers to analyze the fluid flow through rotating components of the model.
The new “sliding mesh” mode is essential for simulating rotating equipment where fluid flow entering the rotor is highly non-symmetric with regard to the axis of rotation.
In addition you can also simulate rotating to a discrete angle as well as rotor speed dependent on time.
VENTING MESH REGION
SOLIDWORKS Plastics 2015 offers a new results category allows you to view venting pressure over the part. The venting pressure plot helps identify areas where it may be advisable to add air vents to the mold to minimize the potential problem of gas buildup.
