Superior Meshing for Easier Moldeling

Dramatically cut modelling time and recoup time that would otherwise be lost with each design-analysis iteration. Simcenter 3D accomplishes this through powerful modeling with both automatic and manual mesh generation of 0D, 1D, 2D, and 3D elements, along with techniques to apply loads and boundary conditions.

Unlike competing solutions, Simcenter 3D associates the analysis model to its geometry. This means that changing geometry, mesh, and boundary conditions are all tied to the base design, so when you change the design geometry, the solution rapidly updates all existing analysis geometry, mesh, loads and boundary conditions.

Multiphysics Simulation and Designing for Safety

Benefit from new possibilities for vehicle safety and crash-test performance with Simcenter 3D. The solution offers an array of possibilities for model-based simulation and virtual testing. The solution’s multiphysics analytics cover:

  • Multibody dynamics
  • Finite element analysis
  • Airbag computational fluid dynamics (CFD)
  • Seatbelts, crash test dummies, and human body models
  • Vehicle safety output
