Subject your designs to real world conditions to raise product quality while reducing prototyping and physical testing costs.

SOLIDWORKS® Simulation is a portfolio of structural analysis solutions using the Finite Element Analysis (FEA) method to predict a product’s real world physical behavior by virtually testing CAD models. The portfolio delivers linear, non-linear static and dynamic analysis solutions divided into three products: Simulation Standard, Simulation Professional and Simulation Premium, each of which adds easy-to-use capabilities to solve ever more challenging problems.


  • Reduce Costs
  • Improve Process Efficiency
  • Improve Product Effectiveness
  • Increase Innovation / Market Share


  • Discovers alternative designs shapes with Topology optimization.
  • Reduces time-to-market by quickly determining optimal design solutions.
  • Predicts product performance, Factor of Safety (FOS) and fatigue capabilities early-on in the process.
  • Reduces materials cost. SOLIDWORKS Simulation enables design teams to safely remove unnecessary material.
  • Streamlines the costly testing and certification process by virtually testing and refining your designs first which reduces your time-to-market.



SOLIDWORKS Simulation Standard is an intuitive virtual testing environment for static linear, time-based motion, and high-cycle fatigue simulation. It delivers a concurrent engineering approach, helping you know if your product will perform properly and how long it will last—during the design phase.

Replace description with: In a design study, the parameters of the SOLIDWORKS models (CAD dimensions) and simulation setup (materials, loadings, and fixtures) can be varied to assess the impact of parameter change on the model and perform a wide-range of “what if” analyses.

Estimate high cycle fatigue life of components subjected to multiple varying loads where the peak stress is below the material yield stress. Cumulative damage theory is used to predict locations and cycles to failure.

Time-based motion analysis is a rigid body kinematic and dynamic motion tool used to calculate velocities, accelerations and movements of an assembly under operational loads.

In addition, designers and engineers can determine assembly power requirements together with spring and damper effects. With the motion analysis complete, the component body and connection loads can be included in a linear analysis for a complete structural investigation.

SOLIDWORKS Simulation includes solid, shell, and beam element formulation.

Solves part and assembly structural analysis problems for stress, strain, displacements, and Factors of Safety (FOS). Typical analysis assumes static loading, elastic linear materials, and small displacements.

SW SIM Premium: Composite materials are added for to Static studies. Component setup includes ply orientation and sandwich definition. Results include ply failure index as well as stress and deflections.

Solve steady-state and transient thermal problems for temperature, temperature gradient, and heat flux. Thermal analysis results can be imported as loads into Static Studies.

Frequency Studies determine a product’s natural modes of vibration which is important for products that experience vibration in their working environment.

Buckling failure mode for long and slender components is by collapse at a load below material yield stress. The buckling study predicts the components buckling load factor.

The Pressure Vessel Study calculates Linearized stress, key for safe pressure design.

Enables users to discover new minimal material design alternatives under linear elastic static loading while still meeting component stress, stiffness and vibrational requirements.

Builds upon the Frequency Study to calculate the stresses due to forcing vibrations. Calculates the effects of dynamic loads, impact or shock loading for linear elastic materials. Study types are:
. Modal Time History Analysis
. Harmonic Analysis
. Random Vibration Analysis
. Response Spectrum Analysis

Non-Linear Analysis enables users to analyze complex material behavior, such as post-yield metals, rubbers, and plastics, as well as account for large deflections and sliding contact.

The complex material models in Non-Linear Static Studies can be used to calculate permanent deformation and residual stresses due to excessive loads, as well as predict performance for components, such as springs and clip fasteners.

Non-Linear Dynamic Study accounts for the effect of real-time varying loads. In addition to solving non-linear static problems, Non-Linear Dynamic Studies can solve impact problems.
