Solid Edge Simulation

Built-in Finite Element Analysis (FEA) Tool For Design Engineers

Solid Edge Simulation

Solid Edge Simulation software is an easyto-use, built-in finite element analysis tool that enables design engineers to digitally validate part and assembly designs within the Solid Edge environment.

Based on proven Femap™ finite element modeling technology, Solid Edge Simulation significantly reduces the need for physical prototypes, thereby reducing material and testing costs, while saving design time.

For Use By Design Engineers

This optional, built-in Solid Edge application uses the same underlying geometry and user interface as all Solid Edge applications. Solid Edge Simulation is easy enough for any Solid Edge user who has a fundamental understanding of FEA principles, yet robust enough to service most of your analysis needs.

By enabling engineers to perform their own simulation, more analysis gets done in less time – improving quality, reducing material costs and www.siemens.com/solidedge minimizing the need for physical prototypes – without incurring the high costs of outsourced analysis.

The layout of the user interface is designed to guide the user through the whole analysis process, with on-hand help if required, which makes it easy to learn initially, and revisit if necessary.

Simulation Features

  • Part, sheet metal and assembly contact modeling with realistic component interaction.

  • Realistic operating environment modeling with full complement of loads and constraint definitions.

  • Automatic finite element model creation with optional manual override.

  • Embedded finite element analysis for design engineers.
  • Ability to maintain loads and constraints during model changes.

  • Synchronous technology for fast model redesigns.

Solid Edge Simulation- Automatic Finite Element Model Creation

Postprocessing

You can interpret and understand the resulting model behavior quickly with the comprehensive graphical postprocessing tools. Model results can be displayed in a number of forms, including color and contour plots, which can be continuous, displayed as distinct contour bands or by element and displacement and mode shapes that can be animated.

Min/max stress markers and a probe tool with result Solid Edge Simulation SOLID EDGE call-out boxes also are available.

With Solid Edge Simulation comprehensive postprocessing functionality, you can quickly identify problem areas for potential design revision and generate an HTML report of simulation model information and final results.

Analysis types

You can obtain the results caused by a static loading, find the natural frequencies of vibration or determine buckling loads of a design using the industry standard NX Nastran solver. Re-use of finite element model loads and constraints is as easy as dragging and dropping from one study to another.

Design updates

You can quickly and easily make any required design update during post analysis. Synchronous technology lets you make history-free feature-based model changes at will, which drastically speeds up the model refinement process. In addition, Solid Edge Simulation maintains associativity between the CAD and FE models, while making sure that your applied loads and constraints are maintained for all geometry model changes.
