Steady-state thermal simulation on single partsDetermines the temperature and flow of heat through a part that is subject to prescribed temperatures and heat flux loads.
Proven Abaqus Multiphysics simulationUses Abaqus Multiphysics to provide robust and accurate solutions while requiring the user to have only minimal knowledge of simulation technology.
Accurate results with minimal user inputUnderlying the thermal solutions is a mesh of finite elements, and all analysts understand that the solution is only as good as the mesh. While meshing is often treated as an art form only to be handled by meshing experts, DesignSight takes a different approach, utilizing Abaqus Multiphysics technology to gives the user a choice between a reasonable solution as quickly as possible or a highly accurate solution using multiple passes of automatic mesh refinement.
High performance on multi-core workstations and HPC clustersLeverages Abaqus Multiphysics simulation that is optimized to run in parallel on multiple cores, enabling users to take advantage of the performance of the latest workstations. When a higher level of performance is desired, users can run DesignSight solutions directly on remote HPC clusters using Abaqus Multiphysics tokens. With this approach DesignSight can run very large simulations rapidly without tying up the local workstation.
Guidance at all times to help the user understand what to do nextThe user interface includes the Assistant that provides valuable information and tips related to the current context. For example, when applying loads, the Assistant explains what types of geometry can be selected and what load types are available.
