Outdoor furniture. It sounds almost like a contradiction in terms. However, it’s absolutely essential if you’re to enjoy those long, hazy sun-kissed summer evenings under nature’s canopy. Whether entertaining, lazing or simply grabbing some grub, relaxing in the garden... Continued

The earth is covered by nearly 71 percent water. Of that 71 percent, only about 2.5 percent is clean enough to drink. That being said, only 1 percent is actually easily accessible. The rest of it is confined to glaciers... Continued
SolidWorks has several different tools available for analyzing structures. Static analysis (discussed in my previous blog article) is available with the purchase of SolidWorks Simulation (included in SolidWorks Premium). Nonlinear analysis is available with the purchase of SolidWorks Simulation Premium (see Figure 1).
When a force is applied to a structure (a pencil, a building, a fixture, etc.) the internal pressure in the structure builds up. We call this internal pressure, stress. As stresses rise, the structure gets longer or shorter. We call this elongation, strain. When we run a Static analysis, we are assuming that the relationship between stress and strain is a simple one; we assume the relationship is linear. By making this assumption, we can potentially make an otherwise difficult or sometimes impossible problem very easy to solve.
However, this assumption isn’t all true. In reality, the relationship between stress and strain is never “perfectly” linear. But this assumption is close enough for many scenarios, and the amount of error it introduces may be negligible.... Continued
