Simcenter Mechanical Simulation
Integrated Structural Analysis Solutions Powered by NX Nastran
Understanding how a component or product assembly reacts under stress or vibration is critical in any industry, but as products and materials become increasingly complex, engineers need tools that go beyond linear statics and dynamics analyses.
Simcenter 3D includes solutions you need for a wide range of structural analysis problems within a single user environment. Engineers no longer need one tool for linear statics, another to study fatigue, and yet another for nonlinear analysis. As a result, engineering departments can consolidate analysis tools, and engineers only need to know a single user interface. Simcenter’s structural analysis capabilities are powered by NX Nastran, the premier FEA solver for computational performance, accuracy, reliability and scalability.
Simcenter 3D also supports structural analysis solutions from other commercial finite element solvers, such as LMS Samcef, Ansys, Abaqus, LS-Dyna and MSC Nastran.
Solve a broad range of analysis problems where materials are not strained beyond linear behavior, and where deformations remain small in relation to overall dimensions.
Simulate simple components that undergo nonlinear behavior (such as a plastic catch), or complex assemblies (such as a car body roof crush analysis), using nonlinear implicit and explicit analysis solvers.
Evaluate the effects of a full range of dynamics problems such as transient, frequency, random loading, shock response and rotor dynamics.
Durability and Fatigue Analysis
Improve product durability and validate your product’s structural integrity over the entire life-cycle under realistic loading conditions.
Noise, Vibration and Harshness (NVH) Analysis
Quantify NVH characteristics of vehicles, and efficiently solve large, computationally intensive models.
The NX™ solution for mechanical simulation provides designers, as well as new and experienced CAE analysts, with a comprehensive set of tools for geometry creation and manipulation, finite element pre-processing and post-processing and a broad range of engineering analyses in an open multiCAD environment. This approach will enable your company to introduce performance simulation into your product development process early and often, allowing you to investigate more design options and make better product decisions.
A comprehensive, open digital environment to enable mechanical simulation across the entire product development life-cycle NX mechanical simulation capabilities enable companies to establish a comprehensive and open digital simulation solution for their product development environment, thereby allowing them to develop innovative products faster with lower development cost.
The NX mechanical simulation solution facilitates a dramatically faster and more efficient simulation process, while providing the flexibility you need to incorporate multiple analysis domains in a single environment. This open framework enables your designers and analysts to collaborate more effectively and work with a wide range of input data and solvers. Taken together, these advantages streamline your development process, eliminate duplication of effort and preserve the value of your technology investments.
