Multiscale Experiment Creation Essentials

Provides understanding to perform multiscale and multiphysics simulations in the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform and Multiscale experiments can combine 3D physics simulations with logical system simulations

Course Objective

This course is an introduction to performing multiscale and multiphysics simulations in the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform. Multiscale experiments can combine 3D physics simulations with logical system simulations that are highly abstracted approximations of real-world physical behavior (usually packaged in the form of a functional mockup unit or FMU). Multiphysics experiments involve high-precision 3D simulations such as mechanical finite element analyses, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) flow simulations, and electromagnetic simulations. You can combine two different physics domains to create a co-simulation such as a fluid-structure interaction (FSI) and conjugate heat transfer (CHT).

The course covers the following topics:

  • Creating FSI and CHT models for co-simulation analysis
  • Performing FSI analyses
  • Performing CHT analyses
  • Postprocessing FSI and CHT results
  • Incorporating FMUs into an experiment

The course is divided into lectures and workshops. The course's workshops are integral to the training. They are designed to reinforce concepts presented during the lectures. They are intended to provide users with the experience of running and trouble-shooting actual simulation processes.

Who should attend

Simulation analysts and specialists who will perform co-simulation analysis in the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform will benefit from attending this class. For the R2020x release, this course is intended for the following roles:

  • Multidiscipline Performance Engineer
