    SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2016 Equation-driven Results

    Stephen Callegari



      I was excited to see solid works simulation had finally added an equation driven results plot.

      However, It appears it is lacking. Hopefully, I am missing something.


      For instance, in a non linear analysis with plasticity, the limiting strain must be

      calculated at all points as per ASME  Section VIII, Div. 2 code.


      ASME requires a plot which is a function of  the Equivalent "PLASTIC" strain, and is used in the local failure check for limiting strain.

      Perhaps I am missing something, but it appears only Equivalent "TOTAL" strain (elastic +plastic) is

      available to be used in plot equation:



      Thanks for any help,
