Hi,   I`m New to Solid Works Simulation, and I have got a question.   See Picture of a beam and plate structure below. Results plot shows von Mises of Maximum 228,2MPa. Yield stress for material (steel quality S355J2) is 355MPa, material factor 1,1 so allowable stress is  322MPa.       However factor of safety plot shows Min FOS: 0,89. I… (Show more)

I want to know that two blocks are fully mounted together (or two pipes) without any welding or connections only by squeezing them into each other, how can I find via solidworks the right force to do this?

If I apply a force on a certain known shape and material, from the displacement results on the static analysis, is it possible to find the stiffness of the material? (Assuming linear force-displacement relationship)  Or is this a wrong method?

I have a very simple sheetmetal part, but I could not create mesh. I tried all the highlighted parameters but does not help. Please see the attached pictures and part file.

I need some help setting up an FEA simulation. I have a tube with an internal edge that we want to simulate the stress on as it moves through a bending fixture with different edge radii. I have tried to do this using the motion works, but the tube just pierces the fixture. The the most success I have had is using a static FEA with an applied for… (Show more)

I seem to be finding all the weird errors this week.   Running an analysis on a shell model I am getting the error for insufficiently constrained bodies.   However everything looks pretty constrained, I have tried this both with the global bonding and local bonding for the problem areas. Neither works.   Checking the model with the… (Show more)

What does it indicate when the results of a static and nonlinear study are different when everything else is identical? I was expecting the results to be the same or similar.

Does solidworks need to have a drill for the pin/bolt or will it simulate the drill on its own? If I want to pin two rectangular parts together per say, I have to drill half circles in both parts and insert the pin?

I know that we can use Frequency Shift or Result Options – Selected Modes to eliminate the rigid body modes and get a Harmonic Frequency Response result to list values.  I am afraid however that doing that to get a result captures nearly none of the inertia actually in the model.  I think that we need a result where as the frequency approaches… (Show more)

I've been messing around with connectors and foundation bolts in static simulation, and was wondering if there was another way to do something similar in random vibration? I know that obviously connectors aren't supported in linear dynamic, but I was wondering if you could just create "landing pads" for the bolt based on the pressure cone of the… (Show more)
