LMS – SAMCEF Solver Suite

SAMCEF is LMS Samtech’s general-purpose analysis solver suite. It is based on the Finite Elements Method and covers a large range of applications, from basic to very advanced, in numerous industrial fields.

SAMCEF Linear Statics

SAMCEF Linear Statics is dedicated to linear static analysis of structures. A large library of Finite Elements, combined with a large choice of loads and boundary conditions, give users a best-in-class modeling tool. Thanks to an original and robust algorithm, it can easily take into account small sliding contact conditions.

SAMCEF Modal Analysis

SAMCEF Modal Analysis computes natural frequencies and vibration modes of structures. Second order effects resulting from pre-stresses or centrifugal loading can be taken into account. Deformed shapes and corresponding modal stresses can be computed. Fluid-Structure interaction can be simulated with compressible or incompressible fluids with a free surface.

SAMCEF Dynamics Response

SAMCEF Dynamics Response computes the linear dynamic response of a structure in both frequency and time domains. Direct solver and modal superposition techniques are available.

SAMCEF Random Vibration

SAMCEF Random Vibration is dedicated to the computation of dynamic response to stationary random loading or distributed loads with spatial coherence (Seismic events, launcher take-off…). Analysis is based on a statistical approach and the Power Spectral Density technique.

SAMCEF Buckling Analysis

SAMCEF Buckling Analysis lets you calculate the critical values of a loading proportionally applied on a structure. Following a non-linear analysis, it can calculate eigenvalues of the linearized problem taking into account a complex pre-stress process. SAMCEF Buckling Analysis can also be used as the first step of a non-linear computation to take into account a geometrical imperfection.

SAMCEF Non-Linear Motion

SAMCEF Non-Linear Motion is the solver users need to simulate any non-linear phenomena. This includes contact, plasticity and other non-linear materials, large displacements, rotations and deformations. SAMCEF Non-Linear Motion also features the unique ability to include Multi-Body Simulation features in your Finite Elements models. This makes it very well suited to accurately simulate flexible dynamics phenomena.

SAMCEF Non-Linear Structures

SAMCEF Non-Linear Structures enables to perform the static, kinematical and dynamic analyses of non-linear structures. All Finite Elements support geometric and material non-linearities (hyper-elastic, elasto-plastic, visco-plastic, visco-elasto-plastic, user’s defined, composites…). Rigid/flexible and flexible/flexible 2D and 3D friction contact conditions can also be considered.

SAMCEF Cables

SAMCEF Cables is dedicated to the static and dynamic analyses of non-linear cable structures, taking into account any possible electromagnetic and aerodynamic loads.

SAMCEF Thermal

With SAMCEF Thermal, simple and complex thermal models can be created. Conduction, convection and radiation can all be taken into account. Temperature distributions on your structure are easily computed and can if needed be used as loads for a further mechanical analysis.

SAMCEF Amaryllis

SAMCEF Amaryllis is dedicated to thermal ablation phenomena. It enables uses to study and control charring of material occurring during re-entry of space vehicles or rockets in the atmosphere. Modeling is based on Arrhénius type laws of varying levels of complexity

Composite Analysis with SAMCEF

SAMCEF for composites can be used to solve the classical stiffness and strength problems of composite structures. Moreover, advanced capabilities allow to simulate the progressive damage occurring at the ply level and at the interfaces of layered materials (delamination).
