Introducing the SimScale Project Library

The vision of the SimScale platform is to provide engineers and scientists with an efficient and flexible access to powerful modeling and simulation technology.

SimScale Project Library

Recently we added a new feature to the platform that contributes to the efficiency of your work with SimScale: The Project Library.

It enables you to browse a variety of publicly available simulation projects and search within them. Once a specific project is found, you can import it into your own workspace with a single click in order to get access to the detailed simulation setup and the results.

Why is that efficient? Starting something from scratch is more time-consuming than adapting an existing solution. This holds also true for setting up a numerical analysis:

During the work with customers and testers from the Early Access Program, we realized that users were much faster up on speed when they started with example simulations than starting with an empty interface.

The project library now provides the opportunity to store these example projects in a conveniently accessible way. We will constantly add more and more projects to the library and we will also provide the opportunity for users to make some of their projects publicly available as well.

How it works. The screenshot above shows a part of the project library, either accessible within the platform or via

Simply type in keywords of the analysis you are looking for like for example laminar, structural or hex-dominant – the library will automatically show you the relevant projects.

Clicking on one of the projects shows more information on the simulation – among others the meta data shown in the figure below. If the simulation fits your purpose, one click on Import into my workspace while being logged in into the platform is enough to get the project into your personal workspace.

Project import with SimScale

The project will be instantly visible within the personal workspace. Now one can access all details of the simulation and see how exactly it has been set up including CAD file, mesh and results.

Therefore the library enables you to start from an existing simulation rather than setting up everything from scratch.

The workflow of the SimScale platform then makes it possible to import a library project, create a mesh for another geometry, change the mesh and start another run of the simulation. This means getting faster to the results you are interested in.

In essence, efficient working means for us ‘getting things done’ – and this is what the project library is about. We are looking forward to your opinion and feedback to further improve the library!
