Realistic Simulation for Aerospace & Defense

Manufacturers and suppliers use Realistic Simulation Solutions from SIMULIA to evaluate design alternatives, collaborate on projects and leverage computing resources for more efficient design analysis.


Avionics includes a wide variety of products, such as communication and navigation systems, display units, audio control systems, autopilots, thermal imaging units and various military payloads. Multiple simulations are needed to analyze the operational and environmental loadings on these products. Typical analyses include thermal, stress, durability and fatigue, and transportation and handling simulations as well as dynamic analysis in the modal domain or the transient, often nonlinear, domain.

SIMULIA products provide realistic simulation solutions to these and many other engineering challenges, enabling the advanced, cost-effective simulation of avionics equipment.
