Replicate physical shaker table tests using streamlined simulation templates.

Key features

SimScale’s latest nonlinear FEA capabilities make analysis of separating contacts, large deformations, and nonlinear materials easier, more robust, faster, and hence even more accessible.

cloud-native advanced structural analysis
Contact penetration monitoring plots

Get contact monitoring plots during simulation, keeping you in the loop on contact penetration and solution convergence, and giving you confidence and control over your result outputs.

cloud-native advanced structural analysis
Automatic contact stiffness, load ramping

Simplify physical contact problems by easily simulating snap, interference and frictional fittings, computing introduction and holding forces, contact pressure distribution and peak stresses on connected parts.

  • ITW automotive

    “ITW is a world leader in plastic components for the automotive industry and we are successfully using SimScale in order to understand the insertion/holding force of our fasterners and perform vibration and fatigue stress to our brackets and different components. I get good results for quite complicated plastic parts that have a lot of deformation.”

    Massimo Savi

    Project Manager at ITW Automotive

  • withings logo webinar

    “By using the novel mechanical simulation based in the cloud offered by SimScale, we engineers at Withings have been able to reduce our design-to-prototype cycles from weeks to days. This tool widens our possibilities to test new designs, materials, and techniques and anticipate possible failures, as well as gains in mechanical performance within a few clicks.”

    Victor Pimenta

    Mechanical Engineer at Withings

  • anybotics logo

    “With SimScale we found our ideal balance between ease of use, variety of capabilities, and the ability to handle complex physics. However, we came to appreciate SimScale’s customer service as the most welcome benefit of all: their expert involvement allowed even less experienced engineers to run reliable simulation studies.”

    Dr. Alessandro Scafato

    Senior Development Engineer at ANYbotics

  • custom machines logo

    “I loved the fact that I could do what I need to do in a browser. I started working without installing any software. Using any computer I could upload the model and start the analysis. That was the big “wow” moment.”

    President at Custom Machines

How to get it

SimScale’s nonlinear functionality is built directly into static, dynamic, heat transfer, and thermomechanical analysis. All SimScale structural packages come with our complete nonlinear functionality, as we believe everyone should have access to the physics needed for effective product development.
