Structural Mechanics Engineer for SOLIDWORKS Users

Course Objective

This course is an introduction to the Structural Mechanics Engineer role, which is an offering to expand the simulation capabilities for SOLIDWORKS users, beyond the capabilities offered with the Structural Professional Engineer role. The 3DEXPERIENCE PLM Services connector automatically transfers study data into the simulation apps on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. The Structural Mechanics Engineer role offers a wide range of element types and meshing tools, including an app to prepare and simplify geometry for simulation. The simulation apps on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform provide reliable solutions to multi-step simulations with combinations of non-linearities, including simple and robust contact setup and solution using General Contact for both static and dynamic problems. This role enables the explicit dynamic solver allowing for simulation of highly nonlinear impact or quasi-static problems. The Materials Calibration app is also included, allowing physical test data to be manipulated before being fitted to simulation material models. The 3DEXPERIENCE Platform provides apps and tools for easy sharing of data and knowledge enabling collaboration.

The course covers the following topics:

  • Access and use of the 3DEXPERIENCE PLM Services connector
  • Understand which entities are transferred into the 3DEXPERIENCE simulation apps
  • Create complete Finite Element models for structural and thermal simulations
  • Material test data clean up and calibration
  • Geometry defeaturing and solid meshing

The course is divided into lectures, demonstrations and workshops. The course's demonstrations and workshops are integral to the training. They are designed to reinforce concepts presented during the lectures. They are intended to provide users with the experience of running and trouble-shooting actual simulations.

Who should attend

SOLIDWORKS users who have reached the limits of the SOLIDWORKS simulation tools or those who wish to benefit from the power of cloud-based simulation and the collaboration tools on the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform will benefit from attending this class.

This course is intended for the following role:

  • Structural Mechanics Engineer
