Simulation Specialist can leverage ExSight, the expert-level product family for advanced nonlinear finite element analysis (FEA) and multiphysics simulation on the V6 platform. ExSight leverages Abaqus FEA technology and provides advanced capabilities for modeling, meshing, simulation and visualization of results for analysis experts.
Simulation Lifecycle Management (SLM) enables Simulation Specialists to manage simulation data, capture and deploy company best practices, distribute simulations across computing resources, and share the simulation results to improve collaborative decision making.
SIMULIA Multiphysics Extended Pack
ExSight Multiphysics Extended Pack provides advanced meshing, modeling and simulation capabilities for simulation specialists on the Version 6 platform.
ExSight Multiphysics Extended Pack is part of SIMULIA’s ExSight product family, which together with the DesignSight and Simulation Lifecycle Management product families constitutes a comprehensive product portfolio for realistic simulation built on the Version 6 platform. ExSight is intended for simulation specialists and provides extensive capabilities for setting up and running Abaqus and other multiphysics simulations. ExSight Multiphysics Extended Pack is an extension of the ExSight Multiphysics Pack and provides capabilities such as advanced mesh generation on solid and surface parts, import of composites section properties from CATIA Composites, and definition of automatic or surface based contact. Capabilities for implicit and explicit, transient dynamic simulation are also provided.
- Provides advanced meshing tools in a single integrated environment with full associativity to geometry
- Provides integrated capabilities for composites modeling.
- Provides flexible and robust options for contact modeling
- Enables nonlinear dynamics simulations to be defined and executed
Rule Based Meshing:Enables fully automatic meshing of complex surface geometry with quality meshes containing fewer elements. Common geometric entities are recognized and meshed based on user-defined rules creating meshes that automatically meet mesh-quality targets. Provides consistent meshing results and offers meshing rules appropriate to the target industry and discipline.
Batch MeshingA convenient tool is provided to quickly mesh a single shell part or large assemblies of shell parts from a Navigation window using defined rules. Batch meshing can be used to mesh multiple products without the need to load all the geometry and finite element model representations into memory.
Mesh EditingEnables users to leverage mesh and geometry editing tools for manual meshing and editing operations. The user has access to a variety of tools such as local mesh specifications and mesh quality based editing.
Composite Material and SectionAllows the definition of lamina elastic material properties for composites modeling. It supports the direct import of composite layup information from CATIA Composites Part Design for composite shell section property definition. The analyst can thus quickly setup the composites model and run simulations. The direct link with the composites design allows for composites layups to be updated seamlessly based on the results of simulations.
ContactProvides a convenient contact detection tool for rapid setup of contact interactions in a model. In addition, the user has the option to define surface based contact pairs based on user specified master and slave surfaces. Contact property definitions for friction properties can be created by the user and associated with contact pairs. Visualization tools enable the quick review of created contact pairs.
Explicit Dynamics simulationMulti-step, nonlinear, explicit dynamic simulation can be defined with models consisting of solid or shell elements. For each simulation step, attributes can be defined and user controls can be set to customizing the analysis time incrementation. A mass scaling option is available to reduce solution times.
Implicit Dynamics simulationMulti-step, nonlinear Implicit dynamic simulation can be defined with models consisting of solid or shell elements. implicit time integration is used to calculate the transient dynamic or quasi-static response of a system. The user has the choice of specifying application types including transient fidelity, moderate dissipation and quasi-static simulations.
Model Building and geometry importProvides a wide range of tools for feature-based part modeling and assembly creation. Geometry imported from 3rd party CAD systems can be imported using STEP and IGES formats and modified for simulation.
