Stress Analysis for Motion

With SolidWorks Simulation added in, you can perform stress, factor of safety, or deformation analysis of components without setting up loads and boundary conditions. The required loads are obtained automatically from a calculated Motion Analysis study.

You can use the stress analysis results to display the effects of motion loads on deformations and stresses for one or more components. You can calculate results for isolated times and time ranges. The stress analysis results do not change the motion study results.

For a more detailed stress analysis, you can export the loads at a time of interest to SolidWorks Simulation and perform a combined rigid-flexible body analysis.
