I have this specific question that is if the results that I get by using Simulation in SolidWorks are approbed or certified by ASME, meaning that ASME will accept that calculations as correct or acceptable?
Only if the error level is 5 or lower.
Normal engineering is 10 of lower.
This must also include formulas and results as stated in VIII section 2 part 5.
Look at PVeng's website for some very good examples of what is required when using design by analyze.
