SOLIDWORKS Simulation comes with powerful virtual testing environment that helps product engineers in efficiently evaluating structural product performance under a variety of physical scenarios.
Furthermore, SOLIDWORKS Simulation is fully embedded within SOLID WORKS 3D CAD and therefore enables engineers to evaluate products mechanical resistance, natural frequencies, product durability as well as test heat transfer and buckling instabilities.
Submodeling is based on the St. Venant's principle. The St. Venant's principle states that the stresses on a boundary reasonably distant from an applied load are not significantly altered if this load is changed to a statically equivalent load. The distribution of stress and strain is altered only near the regions of load application.
Talking about Submodeling, it offers a swift and easy way of zooming in on a component of interest. Because it creates a sub-study using displacement results of the parent study while isolating the part you need to be focusing on, it renders ease of operation with quick results.
You can use Submodeling on SOLIDWORKS Simulation to the fullest by removing away the rest of the assembly which may not be required anymore and use finer mesh for gaining accurate results, more so without raising the solution time.
Submodeling is available in Simulation Professional and above and requires a parent study. It comes with plenty of advantages, and it is the optimal way to gain quick results that are high in quality.
Being a fundamental component of SOLIDWORKS Simulation, Submodeling is a necessity to learn and understand. When in Toronto, you have the benefit of receiving the required training at FEA Training Consultants, which has the award-winning certified instructors with years of experience. The instructors brilliantly cover the entire process from meshing to results evaluation for parts and assemblies.
