Siemens accelerates electromagnetics simulation processes with latest release of Simcenter 3D

Siemens Digital Industries Software announces today the latest version of Simcenter™ 3D software, with major enhancements for low- and high-frequency electromagnetic solutions to help accelerate electromagnetics simulation processes. The latest version advances simulation capabilities with increased multidisciplinary integration capabilities, faster CAE process, increased openness and scalability, and enhanced capabilities to integrate with the digital thread.

As more electronics are included in products, it is extremely important for engineers to understand how electromagnetic performance can potentially affect and interfere with product performance. Electrical motors, sensors and antennas are all examples of common products or components where electromagnetic simulation plays a big part in the development process. The latest release of Simcenter 3D introduces a new physics discipline for low- and high-frequency electromagnetics simulation to the Simcenter 3D environment. By including electromagnetic simulation into Simcenter 3D, engineers can take advantage of the integrated environment to perform electromagnetic simulation faster than with traditional simulation tools and streamline multiphysics workflows between electromagnetic and other physical simulations.

“Leading companies today realize the value simulation can bring to the product development process in terms of cost, speed, and impact to innovation,” said Jan Leuridan, Senior Vice President, Simulation and Test Solutions, Siemens Digital Industries Software. “The latest enhancements to Simcenter 3D continue to expand the capabilities for predicting product performance and simulating more complex solutions to offer expanded value to our customers.”

Additional enhancements to Simcenter 3D include:

  • Faster CAE Processes: A new immersed boundary method helps engineers spend less time modeling for computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis. Engineers can also now instantaneously compute new configurations for flexible hoses and pipes after a design configuration change.
  • Open and Scalable Environment: Engineers can now use calculated vibrations from common third-party finite element (FE) solvers, ANSYS and Abaqus, and apply those vibrations as loading in a structural or vibro-acoustic solution in Simcenter 3D, which can lead to a better understanding of how vibrations will impact perceived sound by end-customers.
  • Tied to the Digital Thread: A new enhanced interface between Simcenter 3D and Simcenter™ Testlab™ software helps engineers better collaborate with colleagues in the test group, which can keep analyses correlated with physical test results. New capabilities available in Teamcenter Simulation help engineers quickly identify which simulations are impacted after a design change, which helps save time when working with large assemblies and projects.
