Stress or static analysis calculates the displacements, strains, and stresses in a part based on material, fixtures, and loads. A material fails when the stress reaches a certain level. Different materials fail at different stress levels. SimulationXpress uses linear static analysis, based on the Finite Element Method, to calculate stresses. Linear static analysis makes several assumptions to calculate stresses in the part.

Type of analysis is performed

  •   Linear Static Analysis
  •   Frequency Analysis
  •   Dynamic Analysis
  •   Linearized Buckling Analysis
  •   Thermal Analysis
  •   Nonlinear Analysis
  •   Drop Test Analysis
  •   Fatigue Analysis
  •   Design Studies
  •   Pressure Vessel Design
  •   Beams and TrussesAll type of support, all type of loads is covered



SolidWorks FloXpress is a fluid dynamics application that calculates how fluid flows through part or assembly models. Based on the calculated velocity field, you can find problem areas in your design and improve them before you manufacture any parts.
