SolidWorks Simulation 2017 is an extension to SolidWorks package. Easy-to-use CAD-embedded analysis capabilities enable all designers and engineers to simulate and analyze design performance. You can quickly and easily employ advanced simulation techniques to optimize performance while you design, to cutdown on costly prototypes, eliminate rework- delays, and save your time and development costs.

Book is written to help professionals as well as learners in performing tedious jobs of Finite Element Analysis. The book follows step by step methodology. It explains the background work running behind your simulation analysis screen. The book covers almost all the information required by learner to master the SolidWorks Simulation. The book starts with basics of FEA, goes through all the simulation tools and ends up with practical examples of analysis. Chapters on manual FEA ensure the firm understanding of FEA concepts through SolidWorks Simulation. It explains the Solver selection, iteration methods like Newton- Raphson method and integration techniques used by SolidWorks Simulation for functioning. A chapter on Model Preparation is added in this edition to help you to understand the procedures of preparing model for analysis.
