SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium Dynamics

Analyzing structures subjected to various types of dynamic loading

SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium Dynamics Overview

This course is targeted for the users who would like to become productive in analyzing structures subjected to various types of dynamic loading. The material covered includes the time dependent analysis(force loads as well as motion shock loading examples), harmonic analysis and random vibration analysis (MILS-STD-810F example is included).

Who should attend:

Designed for users who would like to become productive fast, the advanced course offers hands-on experience on the use of the SOLIDWORKS Simulation Dynamics module included with SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium.

This training course will help you to:

  • Understand the response of a structure over time during and after the application of a load.
  • Understand how dynamic loads such as people, wind, waves, traffic, earthquakes, or blasts can effect your design.

Training Methods

Choose the training method right for you

Group/Public Training

Receive training as a group (limited amount per class) from certified instructors using vendor approved training content and methodologies.

Training is delivered either live online or in a traditional classroom environment.

  • Cost effective training method.
  • More effective than video based training, with videos learners are often not as focused on the training and skip exercises.
  • Learn more through group questions and feedback.

Private Training

This style of flexible training is perfect for teams or individuals who are faced with a specific challenge and require personalized courses with on-the-job coaching.

Training is available live online, in-person classroom or onsite at your location.

  • Use our state-of-the-art mobile classroom at your facility.
  • Bring your team up to a consistent level of knowledge by having them take the same training at the same time.
  • Benefit from flexible scheduling options.
