Simulation Premium

SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium includes all of the capabilities of SOLIDWORKS Simulation Professional, plus additional features like composite materials and powerful analysis tools for simulating nonlinear and dynamic response.


Analyze your design in the nonlinear world

• Easily transition between linear and nonlinear simulations for comprehensive evaluation

• Examine deformations caused by overloads, contact (including self-contact), and flexible materials

• Determine residual stresses and permanent deformations in metals after material yield

• Study nonlinear buckling and snap-through events

• Investigate designs with hyperelastic materials, such as rubbers, silicones and other elastomers

• Conduct an elasto-plastic analysis to study plastic deformation and the onset of yield

• Examine creep effects and material changes with temperature

• Test the performance of your molded plastic part taking into account in-mold residual stresses and temperature with SOLIDWORKS Plastics


Perform dynamic analyses of parts and assemblies

• Simulate time history, steady-state harmonic, response spectrum, and random vibration excitations

• Study stress, displacement, velocity, and acceleration variations with time, as well as RMS and PSD values

• Carry out impact analysis using nonlinear dynamic capabilities

• Determine the durability of a product submitted to vibrations with fatigue analysis


Simulate composite materials

• Study multilayer composite components to examine the effects of layer material, thickness, and orientation on product performance

• Use the revolutionary user interface to dynamically control and display ply orientation

• Determine the correct composite lay-up and orientation for operational loads


Easily tackle complex problems with Cyclic Symmetry and 2D planar simplification tools

• Create plane stress, plane strain, axisymmetric, and cyclic symmetry nonlinear analysis

• Solve complex contact problems in a fraction of the time with no loss of accuracy

• Use 3D CAD models without modification to generate 2D sections for analysis



With SOLIDWORKS Simulation, you can reduce the risk involved in exploring new and innovative design solutions and help get products to market faster—and with less prototyping. By understanding product performance early in the design process, you avoid costly over-design and reduce the risk of warranty issues. This powerful set of structural simulation tools is fully integrated within the SOLIDWORKS environment, with seamless operation for designers and simulation experts alike at every stage of product development. Through powerful results visualization you can study the forces affecting your design—displaying stresses, displacement, life time, and temperature. You can calculate measurements for any point, surface, or volume, and then graph and list results for all types of simulations. SOLIDWORKS Simulation provides a complete range of tools for analyzing the structure with FEA, motion, and multi-physics for your parts and assemblies. As part of the SOLIDWORKS suite of 3D product development solutions—covering design, simulation, technical communication, and data management— SOLIDWORKS Simulation is powerful, accurate, and intuitive, enabling all product engineers to tackle the most complex engineering challenges. Simulation-driven product development takes 3D design to another level so you can predict the performance of your product under real-world operating conditions to innovate, detect potential issues, and correct them before prototyping, tooling, and production


SOLIDWORKS software provides users with an intuitive 3D development environment that helps maximize the productivity of your design and engineering resources to create better products faster and more cost-effectively.
