Available Modules


Acoustics Simulation

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.

Thermal Simulation

Simcenter includes comprehensive, best-in-class thermal simulation capabilities that can help you to understand the thermal characteristics of your product and subsequently tailor your thermal management solution for optimal performance.


Fluid dynamics simulation

Simcenter provides industry leading computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software that allows you to simulate almost any engineering problem that involves the fluids, structures and all of the associated physics.

Multiphysics Simulation

Complex industrial problems require solutions that span a multitude of physical phenomena, which often can only be solved using simulation techniques that cross several engineering disciplines.

Structural Simulation

Simcenter includes the structural solutions you need for a wide range of structural analysis problems within a single user environment.

Laminate Composites

Laminate Composites features intuitive and robust Ply and Zone based tools to quickly create finite element models representing 2D and 3D laminate composite components and assemblies.

Space Systems Thermal

Space Systems Thermal software is the space industry vertical application that provides a comprehensive set of tools to conduct orbital thermal analyses within the Simcenter 3D environment.

Electronic Systems Cooling

Electronic Systems Cooling software is an industry-specific vertical application that leverages the Simcenter 3D Flow and Simcenter 3D Thermal solvers as well as the NX™ PCB Exchange capabilities in an integrated multiphysics environment to simulate air flow (CFD) and thermo-fluid behavior in densely packed, heat-sensitive electronic systems.

Advanced Durability

Advanced Durability’s seamless integration with Simcenter 3D Engineering Desktop allows for quick evaluation of component fatigue life using classical methodologies such as stress life, strain life and stress-based weld fatigue.

Specialist Durability

Specialist Durability migrates the functionality of the well-known LMS Virtual.Lab Durability solvers to a new pre-processing environment that features an open and efficient parameter-driven approach of configuring standard and user-defined methodologies.

Test-Analysis Correlation

FE Model Correlation enables you to quantitatively and qualitatively compare simulation and results from several modal test software, including Simcenter Test.Lab. You can also compare two different simulations to validate simplified representations of complex systems. FE Model Updating is designed to efficiently update Nastran FE models to match modal test data.

Topology Optimization

NX’s cutting-edge junction of Topology Optimization with Convergent Modeling and Additive Manufacturing not only solves these issues, but sets Topology Optimization up as a revolutionary tool for creating optimized designs.

If you can think it, we can simulate it

Imagine, for a moment, the kinds of buildings and infrastructure that would be needed to support a thriving human colony on Mars. How could we engineer safe and comfortable living conditions for such an inhospitable environment? As remote as a future colony on Mars may be, simulation provides a way to contemplate the possibilities.
