The latter is aimed at the majority of users, and includes tools for static analysis of both parts and assemblies stress, strain, and displacement. Also, in terms of analysis-study setup, h-adaptive technology is now available for meshing assemblies it was previously available for parts only.

This technology lets you refine meshes automatically using built-in intelligence, rather than guesswork.

On the subject of building in intelligence, COSMOSWorks introduced the Analysis Library, which enabled a more experienced user to define a set of predefined analysis processes. These could then be safely deployed to non-experienced members of a team. Now, with COSMOSWorksyou can assign upper and lower limits for values within that library, allowing the expert to generate templates that have specified limits, thus removing another potential cause of user error.

These tricks have been formalized into features to make the system more intelligent and usable by designers. First, you can now include outsourced parts without having to mesh and analyze the whole form. These can be represented using Mass Elements and are based on the mass properties and moment of inertia information from the SolidWorks model.

Second, you can now take a weldments model and analyze the structural components using beam elements see Figure 1, above.

The system automatically derives the beam cross-section from SolidWorks geometry, creates the cosmoosworks conditions, and reads the loads and supports applied to the weldments—reducing rework to a minimum.

The new Bearing Connector lets you to replace a physical bearing with a virtual component to duplicate the behavior of a bearing. This connector provides the ability to input local stiffness as well as free rotations.

Along the lines of reducing effort, is the use of Connectors, which has increased with each recent release. These allow you to define commonly found conditions, such as the interface between components, joining methods, and component behaviors, using a black-box type feature rather than manually defining the often complex interaction or action.


The Bolt Connector no longer requires users to split the faces around a bolt to define its contact area. Finally, for those looking at nonlinear analysis, the existing Pin Connector is now supported by the nonlinear analysis tools available in the Advanced Professional products.

This, too, reduces rework as you move studies from codmosworks to the nonlinear realm. In addition, springs can now be defined between cylindrical faces or two points or vertices.

One interesting new feature is the ability to predefine Sensors that provide feedback results at specific locations within the model. These can then be used to retrieve results such as stress and displacement on a repeatable basis. The results at Sensors can be saved per plot and displayed while printing or creating reports. The uses for these are pretty open.

For example, they can be used to validate analysis results against physical test data. Elsewhere, in terms of results visualization, you can now manipulate clipping planes using drag handles and can display values of stress above yield strength in a distinctive color to indicate areas of potential failure.

Cosjosworks has recently taken charge of the development of the Adams-based motion simulation system from MSC. This release shows how that is being played out, where the system is both gaining functionality that is more advanced as well as taking advantage of the benefits of modern 3D modeling. The Connector technology is particularly interesting as it removes much of the magic from the FEA process and allows engineers and designers to define their problem studies using real-world language and terminology.

Also, the Analysis Library tools allow an expert to define how a particular recurring problem is solved and package that workflow into an easily distributable form that coskosworks involved in the design process can then reuse.

Elsewhere, friction is now supported for nonlinear contact analysis, and you can now define Follower Loads. This release provides greater integration with SolidWorks, seeing most of the dialogs ported over to the PropertyManager pane, which is a core part of the SolidWorks workflow.

The new Cosmsworks feature in FloWorks allows you to create high-quality animations involving flow-analysis results.

These can be output as AVI files to show flow trajectory and particle tracing. First, the new Thin Wall Technology—which SolidWorks says is unique to the product—automatically detects thin-walled segments in your model and cosmosaorks the thin walls within one cell. This eliminates the need to apply mesh control to capture thin geometry. This technology will also accurately capture the boundary layer near the walls.

Second, you can now model the Cavitation phenomena, commonly found in the design of piping, valve systems, and the like. FloWorks can now predict coemosworks in the model where cavitation will occur and report where pressure and density will be found, allowing the designer to avoid such occurrences.

Finally, FloWorks can calculate the relative humidity in every location of your model — particularly useful for climate control applications like clean room processes, saunas—and users can now input the value of relative humidity as a percentage to every opening in the model.
