White Paper Overview

How Simulation Accuracy Benefits Product Development

Developing successful products demands innovation, reliability, and speed. As a design engineer, you not only must satisfy form, fit, and function requirements, you must also create unique, dependable, and manufacturable product designs faster and at lower cost.

How Accurately Does FEA Simulate Reality?

FEA systems utilize the finite element method, a discrete numerical technique for approximating solutions to boundary value problems for the differential equations that govern physics and engineering.

What Can You Simulate?

FEA and CFD simulation technology allows you to use computer-based, mathematical modeling to approximate and simulate the complex phenomena of the physical universe, including structural, heat transfer, fluid flow, and dynamic behaviors.

SOLIDWORKS Simulation: Accuracy+Inutitiveness=Power

SOLIDWORKS Simulation solutions carry the greatest potential for improving your product development process because of their unique combination of ease of use, speed, accuracy, and power. 

Verifying SOLIDWORKS Simulation Accuracy

You can verify the accuracy of SOLIDWORKS Simulation results through verification problems and benchmarks from the National Agency for Finite Element Methods and Standards (NAFEMS), which are included with the software.

Leverage SOLIDWORKS Simulation Accuracy to Drive Innovation 

Gaining insights into how a design will perform within its actual operating environment can help you create innovative product designs more efficiently and cost-effectively.
