Release of the SimScale CAE Platform

The whole SimScale team is excited to announce the release of the first official version of the SimScale platform. The platform has been developed in a very close to market setting during the last months while receiving constant feedback from the users of our Early Access Program.

We received plenty of opinions and suggestions on how the work with the platform could become faster, easier and in the end more efficient. Thanks to all EAP users for the help to bring the platform to its current version!

With this latest release we again enhanced the capabilities of the platform with new features which we will further introduce soon. As an example, the picture above shows the mesh of a fluid domain around a vehicle shape built with a hex-dominant mesh operation, available on the platform.

The options to refine specific regions of the mesh as well as add fine boundary layer cells enables you to create sophisticated meshes for fluid mechanical simulations. The picture below shows a finite element based structural analysis of a connecting rod where we introduced new material models that enable the modeling of more advanced applications.

Plenty of other small and large improvements have been made like pushing the fast rendering of meshes to larger sizes, providing the option to upload user-defined simulation setups and many more.

displacement - Release of the SimScale Simulation / CAE Platform

We believe that this release brings us one step closer to the vision of providing engineers with the simulation technology they need in an open, efficient and flexible manner.

On the other hand, this version of the SimScale platform is just the beginning: We are already working on the next features to push the platform further.

In case you do not yet have an account for the platform, simply sign up within thirty seconds and look around yourself. We just updated the first tutorial and getting started section, such that you can get a neat overview over the platform and – if you like – run a first analysis within ten minutes.

As always, we are very interested in your opinion and feedback on the platform – shoot us an email, use the helpdesk section on the platform or contact us otherwise – we are looking forward to talk to you!

SimScale is the world's first cloud-based simulation platform, enabling you to perform CFD, FEA, or thermal analyses. Sign up for the 14-day free trial and join the community of 70 000 engineers and designers. No payment data required.
