Disciplines

Powered by the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform, SIMULIA delivers realistic simulation software that helps engineers and analysts reveal the world we live in

Automation

A comprehensive set of process capture, management, replay, and deployment capabilities

To increase the value of simulation investment, the Automation discipline includes capabilities to allow users to develop, store, manage, deploy, share, and replay standard methods for simulation-driven design.  Use of standardized methods reduces error, increases efficiency, and maximizes simulation value by spreading the knowledge and know-how embedded in simulation processes and allowing replication of these processes throughout the enterprise

Electromagnetics

Electromagnetics

Electromagnetic simulation technology including CST Studio Suite to guide design decisions and improve product performance and quality

Electromagnetics simulation discipline includes technology for simulation of electromagnetic waves propagation and signal strength related to design and positioning of devices for communication and detection.  Technology from CST Studio Suite is connected to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to allow a wide range of high-frequency and low-frequency scenarios to be efficiently simulated related to electromagnetic performance and device placement

Fluids

Steady-state and transient internal and external flow (including heat transfer) around and through solids and structures using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) directly connected to the design geometry

The Fluids discipline covers steady-state and transient internal and external flow around and through solids and structures using Computational Fluid Dynamics technology. A fully-featured Navier-Stokes solver is used for native roles on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. Internal and external fluid domain models can be developed directly from the CATIA or SOLIDWORKS design geometry providing an integrated modeling & simulation capability. On the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, fluid simulation methods can be defined, stored, replayed, and maintained allowing customers to develop and centralize on their own best-practices to increase quality, reliability, and efficiency of structural validation.

Optimization

Optimization

Drive innovation by exploring multiple alternatives across the complete range of operating scenarios, all to make better decisions and find optimal designs

The Optimization discipline provides capabilities to automatically run and re-run simulation methods with varying parameters allowing design space exploration and optimization using Isight technology.  Tens, hundreds, or even thousands of simulations can be automatically run to provide an entire neighborhood of data points for comparison and selection.  Within these data sets, optimal design points can be discovered and chosen to reduce weight and cost and increase durability, strength, and lifespan

Structures

Structures

A comprehensive set of structural analysis solutions using Abaqus FEA to guide design decisions and improve product performance and quality

Structures simulation includes Finite Element Analysis (FEA) using Abaqus for solids and structures to model linear and nonlinear static, thermal, dynamic, and impact effects.  Realistic simulation includes complete material behavior (for metals, elastomers, composites, and many other materials), contact and impact, and large motion.  Fracture/failure analysis can be included.  Fatigue simulation and lifecycle estimation is provided using fe-safe technology. Integrated directly with CAD models generated within CATIA & SOLIDWORKS, a wide range of scenarios can be efficiently modeled & simulated from single parts to complete assemblies allowing simulation to become a core part of product design & engineering processes.

Systems

Capabilities to model and simulate complex multi-disciplinary systems

The Systems discipline provides capabilities to model and simulate complex multi-disciplinary systems that include control systems, mechanisms, flexible bodies, and multiple simulation domains such as fluid-structure interaction.  Logical and physical models can be coupled together.  Multidisciplinary experiments can be run and re-run to evaluate and validate system performance reducing design time and risk-of-failure in physical testing
