Solid Edge Simulation

Date 20-08-18 to 20-08-18

Time 09:30 to 17:00

Duration 1 Day

Location Eynsham, Oxfordshire

Pre-requisites Previous experience of Solid Edge to Foundation level, or another CAD system would be beneficial. Whilst the fundamentals of FEA will be explained, a sound understanding of engineering principles is essential as this will be assumed in the course material

Course Description / Overview

Solid Edge Simulation is a built-in finite element analysis, pre and post processing, tool for design engineers. Solid Edge Simulation leverages the power of the Siemens NX Nastran FEA solver, to deliver best in class simulation to your desktop. This course will teach you how to digitally validate part and assembly designs within Solid Edge, analyse different mechanical and thermal load cases and boundary conditions, and to accurately interpret the results.

Key Topics

Introduction to FEA

Simple Analysis and Results Validation

Simple Results Analysis and Interpretation

Structural Analysis

Modal Analysis

Buckling Analysis

Thermal Analysis

- Radiation

- Convection

- Flux

Coupled Analysis

- Thermal and Structural Loads

Boundary Condition Creation and Management

Mesh Creation and Control

Post Processing and Results Interpretation

Target Audience

The Solid Edge Simulation training course is aimed at ‘Desktop’ engineers who are looking to use Solid Edge Simulation, or those who are currently using it but feel their knowledge may be lacking. Whilst basic elements of FEA will be explained, this is not an Engineering Science training course and focusses on where buttons are and what they do, rather than the scientific theory behind the function.

Our Clients

The tailored update training we attended was very informative and was delivered by a competent and knowledgeable adviser. The instructor was very happy to go off topic during the training to help with any other questions that we had with Solid Edge.

FSM Manufacturing Ltd

NX is an industry-standard product and we are a startup company, but we now know that we could not have managed without it. We knew that NX is robust and utterly predictable, and with our ambitious timescales that is exactly what we needed.


A boat is a very, very complicated product, but we can find no limitation with NX and Teamcenter. There is nothing that we cannot do using NX and It is extremely easy to locate parts with Teamcenter for re-use or resizing.

Sunseeker International Ltd

Teamcenter gave us the greatest possibilities for a product lifecycle system - the ability to track samples, costing, bills of materials for the factory and much more. It is one of the things that will allow us to stay relevant and comptetitive, improving our speed to market.
