Get design insights to drive innovation

Simulation Solutions

With powerful and intuitive SOLIDWORKS® Simulation solutions, product engineers can virtually test new ideas, quickly and efficiently evaluate performance, improve quality, and get the knowledge for product innovation.

Virtual simulation software

Manufacturing companies across all industries have made 3D virtual simulation a valuable engineering tool to synthesize and define their physical products.

Sophisticated simulation is no longer just for specialists. It’s the inspiration that fuels innovation. Product engineers can make their technical decisions driven by simulation insights, uncovering significant product and business benefits.


SOLIDWORKS Simulation helps you ask and answer complex and important engineering questions earlier. Allowing you to test your product virtually with real world insights.

SOLIDWORKS Simulation Linear Analysis
Linear Stress Analysis

Calculate stresses and deformations of parts and assemblies due to internal and external loads to validate product performance and safety while you design.

Finite Element Analysis (FEA)

Use finite element analysis to calculate stresses and displacements of parts and assemblies under internal and external loads.

Fatigue Analysis

Predict component fatigue failures by examining repeated or random load cycles.

Thermal Analysis

Calculate temperatures and heat transfer within and between components.

Motion Analysis

Evaluate mechanical performance through operational movements using rigid body motion analysis.

Vibration Analysis

Examine how vibrating or unstable modes can shorten equipment life to eliminate failures.

Nonlinear Analysis

Analyze stresses and deformations of geometry under general loading and material conditions.

Frequency Analysis

Identify boundary conditions and ensure that natural modes of vibration are away from the environmental forcing frequencies.

Dynamic Analysis

Determine the impact of time varying loads on structural response for your design.

Plastic and Rubber Part Analysis

Optimize material selection for plastic and rubber components, or assemblies containing plastic or rubber parts.

Structural Optimization

Optimize a design to meet defined strength-to-weight, frequency, or stiffness performance.

Buckling Analysis

Investigate the buckling strength of a design with and without environmental loads to ensure that it meets product requirements for strength, performance, and safety.
