Introduction to Finite Element Analysis Using SolidWorks Simulation 2014

Author: Randy Shih
Publisher: SDC Publications
ISBN: 9781585038572
Release Date: 2014
Genre: Computers

The primary goal of Introduction to Finite Element Analysis Using SolidWorks Simulation 2014 is to introduce 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. This textbook contains a series of thirteen tutorial style lessons designed to introduce beginning FEA users to SolidWorks Simulation. The basic premise of this book is that the more designs you create using SolidWorks Simulation, the better you learn the software. With this in mind, each lesson introduces a new set of commands and concepts, building on previous lessons.

Analysis of Machine Elements Using SolidWorks Simulation 2014

Author: John R. Steffen
Publisher: SDC Publications
ISBN: 9781585038565
Release Date: 2014-05-14
Genre: Computers

Analysis of Machine Elements Using SolidWorks Simulation 2014 is written primarily for first-time SolidWorks Simulation 2014 users who wish to understand finite element analysis capabilities applicable to stress analysis of mechanical elements. The focus of examples is on problems commonly found in an introductory, undergraduate, Design of Machine Elements or similarly named courses. In order to be compatible with most machine design textbooks, this text begins with problems that can be solved with a basic understanding of mechanics of materials. Problem types quickly migrate to include states of stress found in more specialized situations common to a design of mechanical elements course. Paralleling this progression of problem types, each chapter introduces new software concepts and capabilities. Many examples are accompanied by problem solutions based on use of classical equations for stress determination. Unlike many step-by-step user guides that only list a succession of steps, which if followed correctly lead to successful solution of a problem, this text attempts to provide insight into why each step is performed. This approach amplifies two fundamental tents of this text. The first is that a better understanding of course topics related to stress determination is realized when classical methods and finite element solutions are considered together. The second tenet is that finite element solutions should always be verified by checking, whether by classical stress equations or experimentation. Each chapter begins with a list of learning objectives related to specific capabilities of the SolidWorks Simulation program introduced in that chapter. Most software capabilities are repeated in subsequent examples so that users gain familiarity with their purpose and are capable of using them in future problems. All end-of-chapter problems are accompanied by evaluation "check sheets" to facilitate grading assignments.

Motion Simulation and Mechanism Design Using Solidworks Motion 2011

Author: Kuang-Hua Chang
Publisher: SDC Publications
ISBN: 9781585036691
Release Date: 2012
Genre: Computers

Motion Simulation and Mechanism Design with SolidWorks Motion 2011 is written to help you become familiar with SolidWorks Motion, an add-on module of the SolidWorks software family. This book covers the basic concepts and frequently used commands required to advance readers from a novice to intermediate level in using SolidWorks Motion. SolidWorks Motion allows you to use solid models created in SolidWorks to simulate and visualize mechanism motion and performance. Using SolidWorks Motion early in the product development stage could prevent costly redesign due to design defects found in the physical testing phase. Therefore, using SolidWorks Motion contributes to a more cost effective, reliable, and efficient product design process. Basic concepts discussed in this book include model generation, such as creating assembly mates for proper motion; carrying out simulation and animation; and visualizing simulation results, such as graphs and spreadsheet data. These concepts are introduced using simple, yet realistic examples. Verifying the results obtained from the computer simulation is extremely important. One of the unique features of this book is the incorporation of theoretical discussions for kinematic and dynamic analyses in conjunction with the simulation results obtained using SolidWorks Motion. Verifying the simulation results will increase your confidence in using the software and prevent you from being fooled by erroneous simulations.
