Need to know how accurate SOLIDWORKS Simulation really is? How about within 1 percent of the referenced solution?!
That’s the conclusion after running 101 validation examples for Finite Element Analysis (FEA) software as documented by the Structural Analysis Software Validation Guide and corresponding report. This guide was published by AFNOR (Association Française de NORmalisation, French Standardization Association), written and compiled by the SFM (Société Française des Mécaniciens).
Extensive Finite Element Analysis Report Coverage
This report compares 101 results given by SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2019 with examples provided by AFNOR. The 101 validation tests cover a wide range of FEA domains: linear and nonlinear static, linear dynamic, linear and nonlinear thermal, and thermos-mechanics.

Engineering Simulation is a multi-billion dollar business and for good reason. Simulation tools such as the ones provided by SOLIDWORKS and SIMULIA are critical for engineering companies to bring products to market faster, to improve quality and to reduce prototyping costs and manufacturing defects.
By understanding product performance early in the design process, designers and design engineers can innovate more and avoid costly over-design without sacrificing product quality.
