Simulating or performing Finite Element Analysis (FEA) on the real-world response of your design has never been easier. With the full-featured suite of tools in SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium, you can reduce the number of assumptions required in a world that is rarely linear or static. SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium software bolsters the depth and the ease of use of SOLIDWORKS Simulation Professional with additional capabilities, including a powerful set of tools for simulating non-linear and dynamic response as well as composite materials.

Simulation Premium Capabilities
SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium comes with a range of features and capabilities to help you improve your design. Below is a list of some of its powerful features that you could benefit from – along with some useful information, if you require any more information feel free to contact us in the box below.
Capture the effects of large displacements on designs
- Examine the large deformations caused by overloads, contact, and flexible materials
- Transition easily between linear and nonlinear simulations
- Study nonlinear buckling and snap-through events
Simulate products made with nonlinear materials
- Investigate designs with hyperelastic materials, such as rubbers, silicones, and other elastomers
- Conduct an elasto-plastic analysis to study the onset of yield as well as plastic deformation
- Examine creep effects and material changes with temperature
Perform dynamic analyses of parts and assemblies
- Simulate time history loading, steady-state harmonic input, response spectrum, and random vibration excitations
- Input excitation curves of forces in random vibration analysis
- Study stress, displacement, velocity, and acceleration with time, as well as RMS and PSD values for stress, displacement, velocity, and acceleration
Simulate composite materials
- Utilise simulation to leverage these advanced materials used in an increasing number of products, from consumer goods to advanced aerospace structures
- Study multilayer shell bodies to examine the effect of each layer with its own material properties, thickness, and orientation
- Use the revolutionary user interface to dynamically control and display ply orientation directly on your SOLIDWORKS model
- Utilise sandwich and graphite or carbon-fiber composites, including honeycomb and cellular foam
2D planar simplification tool
- Create plane stress, plane strain, and axisymmetry nonlinear analysis
- Use 3D CAD models without modification to generate 2D sections
- The full suite of Finite Element Analysis Tools

FEA – Finite Element Analysis CFD – Computational Fluid Dynamics Rather than define these terms individually and risk further confusion it is better to simply associate them with the 2 virtual test types they are most commonly used to describe. FEA = Mechanical...
Are your designs BSI 5295 proof? Are your designs ISO 9001 proof? What happens if a client or customer asks you these questions, how do you determine whether your designs meet or fail a specific industry standard? Well you don't until you have tested them. To verify...
When Masuri Helmet’s approached Visitech’s Alan Meeks to redesign the cricket helmet it was a project that called upon all the skills he had developed over 40 years as a designer. Cadtek Systems recently met up with Alan to find what brought him from being an...
