SOLIDWORKS Simulation enables design teams to work together concurrently, evolving the design while validating any changes, and reusing previous analysis information, speeding up the complete design cycle.
The SOLIDWORKS model is the center of your design process, and also holds all your analysis set up and results. Any changes made to your design can be quickly and easily re-calculated ensuring product performance and reliability.
From part stress and factor of safety to problems with non-linear materials and vibration, learn how to stay competitive in today’s world by better understanding design performance.
SolidWorks Simulation provides a complete range of tools for analyzing the structure,motion, and multi-physics of your parts and assemblies, or exploring fluid dynamics and heat flow around and through your design.
As part of the SolidWorks suite of product development solutions—covering design, simulation, sustainable design, technical communication, and data management—SolidWorks Simulation is easy to use, yet powerful enough to tackle the most complex design issues. You can predict the performance of your design under real-world operating conditions to detect problems and correct them before prototyping, tooling, and production.

CAD-embedded SOLIDWORKS Simulation enables every designer and engineer to carry out structural simulation on parts and assemblies with finite element analysis (FEA) while they work to improve and validate performance and reduce the need for costly prototypes or design changes later on.
Structural simulation covers a wide range of FEA problems—from the performance of a part under a constant load to the stress analysis of a moving assembly under dynamic loading, all of which can be determined using SOLIDWORKS Simulation tools.
CAD-embedded SOLIDWORKS Simulation enables every designer and engineer to carry out thermal analysis at any stage of design to ensure that every component and assembly performs properly within expected temperature ranges, and spot safety issues before they arise.
Thermal analysis calculates the temperature and heat transfer within and between components in your design and its environment. This is an important consideration of design, as many products and material have temperature dependent properties. Product safety is also a consideration—if a product or component gets too hot, you may have to design a guard over it.
Perform structural optimization analysis during design using CAD-embedded SOLIDWORKS Simulation to reach the best available strength-to-weight, frequency, or stiffness performance for your designs, and cut costly prototypes, eliminate rework and save time and development costs.
Carry out fatigue analysis and predict component fatigue failures during the design phase with CAD-embedded SOLIDWORKS Simulation. You can then adjust your design or define a preventive maintenance schedule to reduce warranty costs and maximize product life.
Create a time- and money-saving electronic cooling strategy that ensures product thermal performance and quality using CAD-embedded SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation and the Electronic Cooling Module. Thermal management studies optimize heat dissipation, address thermal management problems common to products with printed circuit boards (PCBs), and help in selecting electronic devices.
