Introduction to Finite Element Analysis Using SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2020 introduces the aspects of Finite Element Analysis (FEA) that are important to engineers and designers. Theoretical aspects of FEA are also introduced as they are needed to help better understand the operation.
The primary emphasis of the text is placed on the practical concepts and procedures needed to use SOLIDWORKS Simulation in performing Linear Static Stress Analysis and basic Modal Analysis. This text covers SOLIDWORKS Simulation and the lessons proceed in a pedagogical fashion to guide you from constructing basic truss elements to generating three-dimensional solid elements from solid models. This text takes a hands-on, exercise-intensive approach to all the important FEA techniques and concepts.
