Using SOLIDWORKS PDM Course

Using SOLIDWORKS PDM Course

The focus of this course is on the fundamental skills and concepts central to the successful use of SOLIDWORKS PDM. The intended audience for this course is anyone who will manage files with SOLIDWORKS PDM.

Prerequisites: Basic experience with the SOLIDWORKS software, experience with the WindowsTM operating system, and knowledge of SOLIDWORKS file structure and referencing.
Length: 1 day

SOLIDWORKS Simulation Professional Course

SOLIDWORKS Simulation Professional Course

This course is designed to make SOLIDWORKS Simulation users productive with the SOLIDWORKS Simulation Professional extension. This 2-day course will provide an in-depth coverage on the advanced topics in Finite Element Analysis (FEA) including heat transfer analysis, frequency analysis, fatigue, stability analysis based on the linear buckling concepts, 2D simulations (plane stress, strain and axisymmetry) and pressure vessel modulus. Example or parts and assemblies including those with various gap contact conditions are reviewed.

Prerequisites: Students must have attended the introductory SOLIDWORKS Simulation course (3 days) or must have working knowledge of the SOLIDWORKS Simulation software. Knowledge of SOLIDWORKS and basic mechanical engineering concepts is recommended.
Length: 2 days

SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium: Nonlinear

SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium: Nonlinear Course

This class will raise your SOLIDWORKS Simulation FEA skills to the next level! It offers hands-on experience on the use of SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium nonlinear module. The 2-day course provides an overview on a wide range of nonlinear structural/mechanical analysis topics. You will learn how to deal with models that exhibit large displacements and/or yielding, discuss and practice the use of many material models available in SOLIDWORKS Simulation and, most importantly, how to drive a non-linear analysis to successful completion.

Prerequisites: Must have attended the basic SOLIDWORKS Simulation class, or must have an experience with SOLIDWORKS + working basic knowledge of finite elements and of basic mechanical principles.
Length: 2 days

SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium – Dynamics Course

SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium – Dynamics Course

This course is targeted for the users who would like to become productive in analyzing structures subjected to various types of dynamic loading. The material covered includes the time dependent analysis (force loads as well as motion shock loading examples), harmonic analysis and random vibration analysis (MIL-STD-810F example is included), response spectrum analysis, and introduction to nonlinear dynamics simulation.

Prerequisites: Must have attended the basic SOLIDWORKS Simulation class, or must have an experience with SOLIDWORKS + working basic knowledge of finite elements and of basic mechanical principles. The knowledge of basic principles in Vibrations is strongly recommended, but not required.
Length: 2 days
