Simcenter acoustic software offers interior and exterior acoustic simulation analysis within an integrated solution that helps you make informed decisions during the early design stages so you can optimize your product’s acoustic performance. A unified and scalable modeling environment combined with efficient solvers and easy-to-interpret visualization capabilities enable you to quickly gain insight into the acoustic performance of your product.
Simcenter can help you meet shorter timelines and reduce structural analysis costs with the ability to perform end-to-end aerostructure assessment in a fully integrated environment.
In the quest to make products lighter yet stronger, manufacturers are increasing their use of composite materials. Simcenter is at the leading edge of composites analysis through continuous development of material models and element types. Simcenter speeds the entire process for simulating laminate composite materials through a seamless connection to composites design, accurate solvers and comprehensive post-processing.
Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation
Simcenter provides industry leading computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software for fast, accurate CFD simulation of almost any engineering problem that involves the flow of liquids, gases (or a combination of both), together with all of the associated physics.
Durability Simulation and fatigue analysis
Simcenter gives you access to state-of-the art durability software methods that enable you to perform fatigue analysis and fatigue life prediction analyses quickly and accurately accounting for realistic loading conditions.
Simcenter includes distinct low and high-frequency electromagnetic simulation capabilities for the unique demands in each domain. Expand your insight into the performance of electromechanical components, energy conversion, the design and siting of antennas, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and electromagnetic interference (EMI).
Motion simulation helps you predict the reaction forces, torques, velocities, acceleration and more for mechanical and mechatronic systems. Improve mechanism performance using an accurate and robust 3D multibody dynamic simulation approach.
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.
Understanding how a component or product assembly reacts under stress or vibration is critical in any industry. However, as products and materials become increasingly complex, engineers need tools that go beyond linear-statics analyses. Simcenter provides the structural analysis software you need to simulate a wide range of applications all within a single user environment.
Structural Dynamics Simulation
Simcenter offers a comprehensive solution to understand, analyze and improve the response when a system is subjected to dynamic loading.
Simcenter includes comprehensive, best-in-class thermal simulation capabilities that can help you to understand the thermal characteristics of your product and subsequently tailor your thermal management solution for optimal performance.
Efficiently mesh your models using extensive modeling functions for automatic and manual mesh generation of 1D, 2D and 3D elements in addition to numerous techniques for the application of loads and boundary conditions. User-defined geometry edits, mesh and boundary conditions are all associated to the base design, which means when the base design geometry changes, you can rapidly update your model. This approach greatly reduces downstream modeling time, which results in huge time savings across a project’s many design-analysis iterations.
How can I reduce material in a component or change its properties while ensuring it continues to meet performance targets? Simcenter delivers engineering optimization techniques that can help you answer these this question by systematically searching for the best design that satisfies certain criteria. Reduce component weight or find the right combination of parameters to improve product performance through comprehensive topology, geometry, and parameter optimization capabilities.
Pre / Postprocessing
Reduce the time you spend preparing analysis models, and spend more time evaluating results. Quickly move from multi-CAD geometry data to a complete, run-ready analysis model using unique tools for CAE geometry editing, comprehensive meshing, FE assembly management, multi-CAE solver environments, and fast simulation results post processing and reporting.
Simulation Automation & Scalability
As companies increase their reliance on simulation, they are seeking ways to speed-up the analysis process and increase simulation throughput. One way to increase simulation throughput is to capture repetitive CAE processes, standardize them, and then automate them. Simcenter allows you to capture the expertise of senior analysts and make it available for junior engineers in your organization to use in the form of wizards or templates.
