How to do motion simulation?

I'm working on engine analysis, how I can do crank and piston analysis? I'm making analysis according to static stutation. I want to see the stress on the piston while crank is turning. is it possible in solidworks?

This is possible. You need to first run the motion simulation. Then you can run a static analysis at different time steps. You then repeat the static analysis at as many time steps as you want (the more the better). The setup occurs mostly in the Motion simulation module and only crosses over to the simulation module when you are solving the static analysis.
