Prerequisites: Must have attended the basic SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium class, or have similar experience with SOLIDWORKS and working basic knowledge of finite elements, basic mechanical principles and basic principles in Vibrations.

Description: This class will raise your SOLIDWORKS Simulation FEA skills to the next level. It offers hands-on experience for the SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium nonlinear module. It provides an overview on a wide range of nonlinear structural/mechanical analysis topics. You will learn how to deal with models that exhibit large displacements and/or yielding, discuss and practice the use of many material models available in SOLIDWORKS Simulation and how to drive a non-linear analysis to successful completion.
