Solid Edge Simulation is a built-in finite element analysis (FEA) solution that allows design engineers to digitally validate part and assembly designs within the Solid Edge environment.
Use linear static analysis to calculate displacements, strains, stresses, and reaction forces under the effect of applied loads.
Linear buckling (also called as Eigenvalue buckling) analysis predicts the theoretical buckling strength of an ideal elastic structure. A gradually increasing load is applied in this analysis to seek the load level at which your structure becomes unstable.
The computation of natural frequencies and mode shapes is known as modal, frequency, or normal modes analysis. Use this type of analysis when you want to find the natural frequencies at which a part or assembly resonates when a constraint is applied to it.
Most design engineers are already familiar with this approach for structural analysis, so expanding its scope to thermal analysis requires very little additional training. Structural and thermal simulations are based on exactly the same concepts, follow the same well-defined steps, and share multiple analogies.
