Designing CAE Workflows with SimScale

While creating the user interface of the SimScale platform we are constantly trying to design CAE workflows that are fast and at the same time intuitive. This and the fact that the SimScale UI is entirely browser-based are the reasons that we designed some parts — especially some of the pre-processing steps — in a different way than maybe seen in other simulation software.

One of these parts that we are testing right now in the EAP is the new way of choosing an analysis type (see the screenshot below).

CAE Workflows

During the Early Access Program we got the feedback that when starting to model an application users tend to not having the entire modelling strategy in mind.

Especially when they haven’t set up a similar simulation before. Therefore we tried to come up with an easy and convenient way of flipping through possible analysis types in the beginning of the classical pre-processing steps.

The idea is to show a few application examples and give a rough description of the capabilities of the analysis type to back up the users decision, which analysis type might be the right for his application.

We are curious how the SimScale EAP users will like it.
