Design Engineer

SIMULIA provides Design Engineers with powerful simulation capabilities and seamless integration into their CAD environment using the DesignSight and CATIA Analysis products. Guided workflows enable designers to evaluate nonlinear stress and thermal behavior during the design process.

SIMULIA Advanced Structural Analysis

Compliments CATIA Structural Analysis (STA) pre/post-processing with additional linear dynamics and pre/post-processing capabilities.

CATIA Advanced Structural Analysis enables advanced stress, modal, and linear dynamic analysis on any type of part or hybrid assembly. Capabilities include the full postprocessing analysis on composites parts with embedded failure criteria specification to the creation and simultaneous solving of multiple analysis cases for static, frequency, and buckling analysis, as well as advanced loading.
