I have been working with SW for about a year now and at this point I am barely going into simulation. That part is entirely new for me. I'm wondering, could someone explain the basics of interpreting results? I know how to set up and run basic simulations but I feel very insecure about interpreting the results and would really appreciate an explenation in layman's terms. Can't find a good summary.


  • What does stress measure?
  • What does displacement measure?
  • What does disfiguration measure?
  • What about the factor of safety?


What do the colors represent? How far can I go and still know that the product will be safe?
