Learn about some of the new features in Simulation Mechanical.
The Simulation Flex product offering lets you simulate where and how you want, based on your needs.
If you're testing the setup of an analysis, use your local resources to iterate and optimize your setup. When you're ready to initiate a longer, more computationally intensive simulation, use the power of the cloud and free up your local resources for other tasks.
Simulation Mechanical provides flexibility in obtaining and reporting analysis results with powerful post-processing and report-generation tools.
With many different ways to access and present analytical results, engineers can quickly prepare the final results documentation. Simulation Mechanical automatically converts all user input and result presentations to a well-formatted HTML report that can be exported as a PDF or a Microsoft Word document.
Generate a structural customized finite element mesh, or create an automatic mesh while controlling the size of the mesh for each part.
Investigate your assembly's response to vibration, thermal, and electrostatic loads, such as current and voltage.
Enjoy simple and effective analyses, including:
Perform sophisticated fatigue life analyses; from conventional stress-based analyses to low cycle strain-based analyses with plasticity correction.
Simulation Mechanical includes a built-in fatigue solver designed to enable sophisticated fatigue life analysis using finite element analysis stress results.
Mean stress corrections can be accounted for using standard methods and endurance modifiers like surface finish and temperature.
Find support for large-scale motion, large deformation, and large strain with body-to-body contact in the extensive library of material models.
Enhance design decisions using multibody dynamics, including:
Element types include:
Validate and optimize plastic part designs using tools to exchange data between Simulation Moldflow and Simulation Mechanical.
Transfer fluid flow and temperature results from Simulation CFD to Simulation Mechanical to simulate thermal stresses on your components.
