Following the success of our joint workshop in June, SimScale and FRIENDSHIP SYSTEMS join forces once again to provide engineering professionals and designers with two powerful tools that are changing the world of product design.
FRIENDSHIP SYSTEMS’s product CAESES® has been developed for the simulation-driven design of flow-exposed surfaces. The tool is suited to anyone in any industry who needs free and powerful 3D CAD for parametric modeling. In addition, it offers integration and automation of simulation tools, which is where SimScale comes on the scene.
Being completely cloud-based, the SimScale platform allows you to simulate your designs in a standard web browser, from any device, and without the overhead of traditional on-premises software that typically requires expensive hardware investments and complex license agreements.
CAESES is not yet cloud-based, but it offers integration with multiple CAE platforms. So far, customers have mostly used CAESES together with integrated CFD simulation tools. This has facilitated the faster and more efficient design and development of better products—and at a fraction of the cost. Typical areas of interest include turbomachines, ducts and manifolds, engine components, aerodynamic bodies, ship hulls, amongst others.

The collaboration with SimScale opens a broad spectrum of analysis possibilities for both of our users. The designs created in CAESES can be exported to the SimScale platform, where numerical analyses can be performed. The wide variety of simulation types provided by SimScale allows users to simulate flow performance of the parts with CFD and also gives access to finite element analysis (FEA), which helps design engineers to understand the structural aspects of the design, like robustness, stress, vibration vulnerability, strength, and possible deformations.
The parametric design preparation provided by CAESES and the extensive simulation capabilities of the SimScale platform truly bring the collaborative CAE process to the next level.
Make sure to keep an eye on us! More free CFD and FEA webinars and learning resources are planned, to help users design better products!
In the meantime, you can watch the recordings of our workshop sessions here: Simulation-based Design of Complex Geometries.
