Capabilities of Simcenter 3D

 
Pre & Post Processing

With an increased reliance on CAD/design technologies in the products and solutions we develop, a greater focus is required on how analysts interface with these technologies. The rate at which changes are required also necessitates a greater focus on the pre- & post-processing tools available to the analyst.

 
Motion Analysis

Understanding the operating environments for intricate mechanical systems can be challenging. CAD-based tools offering kinematic solutions to help designers do envelope testing for a mechanism does exist. Kinematics alone, however, doesn’t provide the critical information needed to successfully validate a product or system. The dynamic loads generated by mechanisms are a critical component of any system with moving parts.

 
Structural Analysis

Understanding how a component or product assembly reacts under various loading conditions is critical in any industry. As products and materials become increasingly complex, engineers need tools that go beyond linear statics analysis. Simcenter includes the structural simulation solutions needed for a wide range of structural analysis problems – within a single user environment.

 
Flow Simulation

Fluid dynamics are an integral part of the operating conditions and environment of most products. How a product or system reacts to the forces caused by flow phenomena in its environment can be critical to both the functionality and survivability of a product.

 
Multiphysics

An uncomfortable truth about modern engineering is that there really are no easy problems left to solve. In order to meet the demands of industry, it’s no longer good enough to do ‘a bit of CFD’ or ‘some stress analysis’. Complex industrial problems require solutions that span a multitude of physical phenomena, which often can only be solved using simulation techniques that cross several engineering disciplines.

 
Acoustic Analysis

Are your customers expecting quieter products? Are competitors gaining ground by using sound quality as a differentiator? Will tighter noise regulations impact your product sales? Would you like to decrease the time spent on predicting sound fields or shave off weeks on complex jobs like engine run-ups?

 
Thermal Analysis

Thermal management is a major consideration for a wide range of products, including industrial machinery, automobiles and consumer electronics. The objective of any thermal management solution is to maintain a product’s temperature within a range that is optimal for performance. Accomplishing this may require the removal or addition of heat, either passively or in an actively managed fashion, and this can be evaluated using thermal simulation software.

 
Composites

In the quest to make products lighter yet stronger, manufacturers are increasing their use of composite materials. It is also prohibitively expensive to create prototypes of products made from composites, so simulation must play a key role in the development of new products using laminate composite materials.
