    How does SolidWorks Simulation calculate the rms von mises stress for PSD inputs?

    Michael Borre

      I need to know the theory that SolidWorks Simulation uses to calculate the rms von Mises stress results, so I can reference it when asked by customers. Is there a reference that I can cite?  ANSYS uses a published algorithm by Segalman and Reese, which has been widely accepted by the aerospace industry. Is this what SolidWorks uses?

      Thanks.
