Accurately simulate a wide range of structural problems
Linear analysis is used to solve static problems, such as determining if a structure will fail under a prescribed load, and can also be used to solve transient problems where loads change over time. Simcenter features a complete range of integrated linear analysis functionality, including analysis for linear statics, normal modes and buckling. You can use these capabilities to evaluate structural performance for applications in a variety of industries.
If deformations are large, if linear material assumptions are invalid, or if contact is a factor, then nonlinear analysis is the appropriate simulation choice. Simcenter solves a wide range of nonlinear analysis problems. Nonlinear implicit and explicit analysis solvers enable engineers to address problems as simple as a plastic catch, or as complex as a car body roof crush analysis. Integrated explicit dynamic capabilities let you perform metal forming analysis or evaluate electronic hardware performance during a high impact drop test simulation.
Evaluating dynamic response is a key role of various engineering applications, such as assessing passenger comfort in aircraft and automobiles under varying operating conditions, or evaluating the effect of vibrations on the performance of consumer products and electronic devices.
