SIMPACK from SIMULIA is a key tool used by Clemson University to understand and fully utilize monster windpower machines.

The Challenge

Clemson University wanted to build a real-time test bench simulation laboratory so that students or other non-experts could study the behavior of huge wind turbines in a controlled and repeatable environment.

Dassault Systèmes Response

Clemson used SIMPACK software from SIMULIA to analyze the effects of full-scale mechanical and electrical loads on multi-body models of a complete wind turbine nacelle.

Benefits

Engineers and researchers at Clemson can now replicate and study wind turbine behavior safely, efficiently, and cost-effectively.
