In an effort to compile and compare benchmark data for Linear Static FEA's I've created the attached simulation file. My hope is that the results compiled here will help to compare workstation configurations and allow SolidWorks users to evaluate new workstation purchases.
This FEA does not encompass all the features & functions of SolidWorks Simulation but it should give results that can be compared against other workstation configurations.
Contained in the attached ZIP file is the benchmark file and instructions on how to use it.
If you have any comments please feel free.
