Cosmos 2005 software is the upgrade of SolidWorks' advanced design analysis capabilities, such as non-linear analysis and drop testing. Cosmos 2005 consists of CosmosWorks, CosmosFloWorks, and CosmosMotion, and features more than 100 user-driven enhancements, such as updated interfaces, simplified analysis processes, and tighter integration with SolidWorks 3-D mechanical design software.

Other new capabilities in CosmosWorks 2005 include embedded non-linear analysis, which calculates the behavior of products and materials that distort irregularly, such as O-rings, medical stents, airline luggage containers, and snap-clips. Contact analysis in an assembly between components made up of nonlinear materials is also included.

The software also features: drop testing, which calculates stresses, deformations, and secondary impact when an object is dropped from a specified height; embedded fatigue analysis, to predict failure or cumulative damage of products under cyclic or repetitive loading; and enhanced thermal analysis, which includes effect of temperature changes on material properties, such as conductivity and elasticity, and changes in boundary conditions, such as convection and heat flux with temperature.

In addition, Cosmos 2005 includes load transfer from CosmosMotion without the need for an external file, and also an option to transfer load for the entire motion cycle to study worst-case scenarios. Also, the software has an option for comparing test results, such as stress and displacement data, measured at different locations in a physical test with simulation results. www.solidworks.com
