Finite Element Analysis
If you want to make sure that your product will withstand the demands set on it during its lifetime, Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is your answer. With FEA you can virtually simulate stress, dynamics, or vibration of real-world, complex systems. The possibilities with our products are endless, together with the standard linear simulations you can also perform nonlinear analysis in both implicit and explicit form, thermal and exterior acoustics and also the coupling analysis between various disciplines.
While single bodies or parts of a mechanical system are studied in detail with finite element methods, the behavior of the whole system of interconnected bodies is studied with Multi-Body Simulation (MBS). With the software tools we offer, you can also integrate mechanical components, pneumatics, hydraulics, electronics, and control systems to build and test virtual prototypes that accurately account for the interactions between these different types of subsystems.
Control & System Simulation
The systems that can be analyzed include mechanical, electrical, hydraulic, pneumatic, thermal, gas dynamics, powertrain, vehicle dynamics, digital/analog control systems and much more. The importance of control systems is increasing, and most mechanical systems are coupled with control systems. For example, all cars today are delivered with ABS. Developing mechanical and control systems together will increase quality and shorten development time.
Virtual Build & Test Management
When the simulation activities in your organization are increasing, it becomes more and more important to efficiently and effectively maximize the return on all resources. Using the available technology it is possible to streamline simulation processes, restore order in the data created and utilize the results in the best possible way.
