Description

This is an advanced course that builds on the concepts developed in a Linear Static Analysis. In this course, SOLIDWORKS Simulation - Dynamics, you'll learn how to set up and run a linear dynamic and non-linear dynamic analysis. First, you'll get a better understanding on how the solver works behind the scenes. Next, you'll explore additional concepts like damping, time steps, and new post processing options. Finally, you'll learn about non-linear dynamic analysis and key differences with linear dynamics are highlighted and an example problem is solved. By the end of this course, you'll be able to successfully set up and run a linear dynamic and a non-linear dynamic analysis. Software required: SOLIDWORKS.

Course Overview
Hello, and welcome to this course on Soildworks Simulation Dynamics. My name is Arvind Krishnan and I work at Go Engineer as an application engineer supporting our users in the Dallas-Fort Worth and Oklahoma regions. I also teach the different SOLIDWORKS Simulation tools available. In this simulation course we will primarily be talking about vibrations, whether it's from the roads, motors, or earthquakes. Vibrations are an integral part of any design analysis. Designing your parts and ensuring its safety on the different types of vibratory loads is essential. We will be talking about the different types of analysis like Modal Time History, response spectrum, random vibration, and harmonic loading. Finally we will also talk about nonlinear dynamics where you can look at impact loads and large deformations as well. Some of the things that will be covered in the different analysis is understanding how the solver works behind the scenes. The force definitions available. Time steps, damping, and finally post processing as well. These are some of the different options available as compared to a linear static analysis. By the end of this course you will be able to successfully set up and run a linear dynamic and a nonlinear dynamic analysis. Some of the prerequisites for this course are an understanding of the SOLIDWORKS interface, basic knowledge about what is finite element analysis and how to run a linear static analysis in SOLIDWORKS Simulation. I hope you will join me in this course at Pluralsight. Thank you.
