solidworks simulation training course

SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium Nonlinear

Prerequisites: SOLIDWORKS Simulation and knowledge of basic mechanical engineering concepts (recommended)

Description: This class will raise your SOLIDWORKS Simulation FEA skills to the next level! It offers hands-on experience on the use of SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium nonlinear module. The course provides an overview on a wide range of nonlinear structural/mechanical analysis topics. You will learn how to deal with models that exhibit large displacements and/or yielding , discuss and practice the use of many material models available in SOLIDWORKS Simulation and, most importantly, how to drive a nonlinear analysis to successful completion.
