SIMULIA V5 Overview
SIMULIA provides complete design-integrated simulation capabilities within the CATIA V5 design environment. Designers can use the familiar CATIA user interface to perform analysis directly on their master reference model in CATIA. Data integrity issues are avoided since there is no transfer and translation of geometry.
The combined CATIA Analysis and the SIMULIA Extended Analysis product suites have been developed for designers and engineers who need to accurately size their designs and quickly evaluate their real world performance during the design phase. To access the basic nonlinear and thermal analysis capabilities included in ANL and ATH, users must first be working with Generative Part Structural Analysis (GPS), the backbone product to the CATIA V5 Analysis offering.
Benefits of SIMULIA V5:
- Design and analyze in a single environment to reduce the need to export models to a stand-alone simulation tool
- Scalable solutions allow users to perform linear, nonlinear, or thermal analysis to meet their design application need
- Design iterations can be evaluated rapidly so that more design options can be considered while staying on time and on budget given the same project timeline
- Improve product performance while meeting performance and operating specifications
