An uncomfortable truth about modern engineering is that there really are no easy problems left to solve. In order to meet the demands of industry, it’s no longer good enough to do a bit of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) or some stress analysis. Complex industrial problems require solutions that span a multitude of physical phenomena, which often can only be solved using simulation techniques that cross several engineering disciplines. Simcenter solutions offers engineers a suite of tools to tackle these challenges.
Leverage the use of industry-standard solvers for a full range of applications.
In this simplest case, the physics may be weakly coupled, and it is accurate and easy to chain the different physics solutions. The response results from the first solution provides data to be used as load input by a second physics solution. Because of weak coupling, the second physics does not affect the first physics.
When there is a stronger coupling between physics, they cannot be treated separately, and a more tightly coupled solution is required. In that case, a complex algorithmic basis with advanced coupling schemes are required to run the different physics solutions simultaneously, which is often referred to as co-simulation.
The most substantial level of coupling where the solver is computing both physics together in an integrated fashion. Simcenter performs vibro-acoustic analysis through an integrated, coupled solution.
