Simcenter 3D is a unified, scalable, open and extensible environment for 3D CAE with connections to design, 1D simulation, test, and data management. Simcenter 3D speeds the simulation process by combining best-in-class geometry editing, associative simulation modeling and multi-discipline solutions embedded with industry expertise. Fast and accurate solvers power structural, acoustics, flow, thermal, motion, and composites analyses, as well as optimization and multi-physics simulation.
Simcenter 3D is available as a standalone simulation environment. It is also available completely integrated with NX delivering a seamless CAD/CAE experience.
Simcenter offers interior and exterior acoustic analysis within an integrated solution that helps you make informed decisions during the early design stages so you can optimize your product’s acoustic performance. A unified and scalable modeling environment combined with efficient solvers and easy-to-interpret visualization capabilities enable you to quickly gain insight into the acoustic performance of your product.
In the quest to make products lighter yet stronger, manufacturers are increasing their use of composite materials. Simcenter is at the leading-edge of composites analysis through continuous development of material models and element types. Simcenter speeds the entire process for simulating laminate composite materials through a seamless connection to composites design, accurate solvers and comprehensive post processing.
Fluid dynamics simulation
Simcenter provides industry leading computational fluid dynamics software allows you to simulate almost any engineering problem that involves the flow of liquids, gases (or a combination of both), together with all of the associated physics.
Efficiently mesh your models using extensive modeling functions for automatic and manual mesh generation of 1D, 2D and 3D elements in addition to numerous techniques for the application of loads and boundary conditions. User-defined geometry edits, mesh and boundary conditions are all associated to the base design, which means when the base design geometry changes, you can rapidly update your model. This approach greatly reduces downstream modeling time, which results in huge time savings across a project’s many design-analysis iterations.
Understanding the operating environments for intricate mechanical systems – like in photocopiers, sliding sunroofs, or wing flaps – can be challenging. Motion simulation calculates the reaction forces, torques, velocities, acceleration and more for mechanical systems. You can directly convert CAD geometry and assembly constraints into an accurate motion model or create your own motion model from scratch, and the embedded motion solver and robust postprocessing capabilities allow you to study of a broad range of product behaviors
