Introduction to Finite Element Analysis Using SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2016

Author: Randy Shih
Publisher: SDC Publications
ISBN: 9781630570095
Release Date: 2016-02
Genre: Computers

The primary goal of Introduction to Finite Element Analysis Using SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2016 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 fourteen 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 2016

Author: Shahin Nudehi
Publisher: SDC Publications
ISBN: 9781630570040
Release Date: 2016-05
Genre: Computers

Analysis of Machine Elements Using SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2016 is written primarily for first-time SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2016 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 tenets 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.

Engineering Computer Graphics Workbook Using SOLIDWORKS 2016

Author: Ronald Barr
Publisher: SDC Publications
ISBN: 9781585039951
Release Date: 2016-05
Genre: Computers

Engineering & Computer Graphics Workbook Using SOLIDWORKS 2016 is an exercise-based workbook that uses step-by-step tutorials to cover the fundamentals of SOLIDWORKS 2016. The intended audience is college undergraduate engineering majors, but it could also be used in pre-college introductory engineering courses or by self learners. The text follows an educational paradigm that was researched and developed by the authors over many years. The paradigm is based on the concurrent engineering approach to engineering design in which the 3-D solid model data serves as the central hub for all aspects of the design process. The workbook systematically instructs the students to develop 3-D models using the rich tools afforded in SOLIDWORKS. The exercises then proceed to instruct the students on applications of the solid model to design analysis using finite elements, to assembly modeling and checking, to kinematic simulation, to rapid prototyping, and finally to projecting an engineering drawing. The workbook is ideally suited for courses in which a reverse engineering design project is assigned. This book contains clear and easy to understand instructions that enable the students to robustly learn the main features of SOLIDWORKS, with little or no instructor input.

Introduction to Solid Modeling Using SolidWorks 2016

Publisher: McGraw-Hill Education
ISBN: 1259696561
Release Date: 2016-05-18
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Introduction to Solid Modeling using SolidWorks primarily consists of chapter-long tutorials, which introduce both basic concepts in solid modeling (such as part modeling, drawing creation, and assembly modeling) and more advanced applications of solid modeling in engineering analysis and design (such as mechanism modeling, mold creation, sheet metal bending, and rapid prototyping). Each tutorial is organized as “keystroke-level” instructions, designed to teach the use of the software. This new edition has been fully updated for the SolidWorks 2016 software package. All tutorials and figures have been modified for the new version of the software. Additional resources are available online at www.mhhe.com/howard2016. Included on the website are tutorials for three popular SolidWorks Add-Ins, SolidWorks® Simulation, SolidWorks® MotionTM and PhotoView360, and the book figures in PowerPoint format. Instructors can also access PowerPoint files for each chapter, model files for all tutorials, and end-of-chapter problems, as well as a teaching guide.
