Siemens Distributes New Version of Simcenter 3D
Simcenter 3D helps product engineering teams be more productive and produce consistent simulation results with a unified, easy-to-use shared platform covering most simulation disciplines.
January 14, 2020
Siemens Digital Industries Software now offers the latest version of Simcenter 3D software, part of the Simcenter portfolio of simulation and test solutions that helps companies engineer innovation. Simcenter 3D helps product engineering teams be more productive and produce consistent simulation results with a unified, easy-to-use shared platform covering most simulation disciplines.
The latest release of Simcenter 3D includes many improvements in four key areas:
Multidiscipline Integration: Simcenter 3D offers new simulation methods that increase realism and deliver better insight into product performance. Industrially-validated rotor dynamics simulation capabilities have been extended, to include nonlinear connection elements for example, allowing engineers to minimize rotational unbalance and unnecessary external forces in applications such as aircraft engines, gas turbines, automotive engines, industrial equipment and electronics.
Faster CAE Processes: New Noise Vibration and Harshness (NVH) composer tool helps engineers quickly create system-level finite-element (FE) models, starting from subassembly models such as an automotive body-in-white, door, suspension, and more.
Ties to the Digital Thread: Deeper test/analysis correlation capabilities from Simcenter 3D, such as new pre-test planning for determining sensor locations, can help determine best methods to use for physical testing.
Open and Scalable: Simcenter 3D is an open environment where engineers and designers can gain the benefits of faster CAE processes by using Simcenter 3D in connection with other CAE solvers.
Simcenter 3D and the Simcenter portfolio are part of the Xcelerator portfolio, Siemens’ integrated portfolio of software, services and application development platform.
