Products across the Simcenter Mechanical range are growing, fast! The latest releases are no exception, with updates across all of the products enabling users to visualize their results more easily and more collaboratively than ever before. Enhancements in current releases help you drive engineering innovation while continuing to focus on our four key pillars:
With both internal and external demands always putting pressure on the delivery date and the total cost of a project, it is unsurprising that our customers demand rapid simulation times. The following enhancements are some of the highlights in this release that help you model and simulate faster:
Model the Complexity
Your products are complex, and you need to accurately simulate and predict performance by capturing the right physics, geometry and operating environment. Simcenter 3D’s multidiscipline integration helps you simulate real-world conditions more accurately, seamlessly transfer data and streamline multiphysics workflows. Here are some of the highlights from the 2306 release that help you model the complexity of your products better:
Model the effects of gear pitting
Discrepancies between meshing gear teeth creates vibrations that ultimately create noise and damage, that should be assessed in the NVH analysis. To model this behaviour you can now specify unique microgeometry for individual teeth to include features such as gear pitting and pitch errors.
Explore the Possibilities
Comparison of results and trialling ideas is an essential part of discovering new solutions and exploring possibilities. The ability to easily adjust parameters in a well developed workflow, run many simulations in a short time, and easily compare the results can all aid this process. It is precisely updates such as these that Simcenter aim to develop so you can find better solutions.
NX Performance predictor
Shift design exploration to the left in the development cycle
NX Performance Predictor enables designers to perform fast simulation to review the design performance of their products with regard to structural stress and displacements. With Simcenter HEEDs enabled to help you find a solution faster
Simulation shouldn’t happen in a vacuum. Simulation is just part of the overall development process, and these enhancements in Simcenter 3D help you keep simulation integrated with that process:
Simplify your workflow with Teamcenter: Simulation and test data in the same database
Teamcenter simulation makes life easier by letting you store simulation and test data in the same Teamcenter database ensuring you are always working from the correct data.
see how you can build the CAE BOM one single time, and Teamcenter Simulation can take care of keeping it up to date as components are updated, added or removed from the CAD BOM.
ASME NQA-1 Compliance
Compliance with nuclear Industry quality assurance policy ASME NQA-1
Safety is a major concern in the nuclear industry, and engineering companies operating in the nuclear space require the products they use to be certified to ASME NQA-1 procedures. Simcenter 3D Engineering Desktop and Simcenter Nastran 2306 have been subjected to a number of extensive tests to validate compliance with NQA-1-2015 “Quality Assurance Requirements for Nuclear Facility Applications.”
