Dynamic simulation gives analysts more powerful tools for understanding product behavior. Learn how this technique makes sophisticated simulation more accessible.
Dynamic simulation helps CAE analysts better understand how products are likely to behave in their actual operating environments. Refining products through iterative simulation is vital for discovering critical issues earlier in the development cycle and improving speed to market.
One challenge analysts often face is dealing with models that are very large, very complex or involve highly nonlinear systems. In these cases, implicit methods of finite element analysis (FEA) require enormous amounts of computing power and matrices of difficult equations.
Explicit simulation uses an altogether different approach, one that sidesteps these issues and helps make extremely sophisticated simulation techniques more practical and accessible.
This report explores the built-in advantages of explicit simulation, its origins with the Manhattan Project, and its practical applications in product development.
