Structural Mechanics Simulation in the Cloud

Structural simulation with SimScale means that in one platform and using the same model, engineers can use different structural analysis types to holistically simulate and analyze their projects. Structural, thermal, and thermo-mechanical behavior can be investigated in order to find critical stress regions and unpredictable deformations stemming from the complexity of real life scenarios.

Engineers designing and testing mechanical components and devices require high-fidelity engineering simulation to quickly and reliably understand their structural and thermal behavior and achieve the best designs with the least amount of iterations. In particular, Finite Element Analysis (FEA) enables engineering teams to solve realistic structural mechanics problems dealing with static, dynamic, and thermal loading conditions. In this whitepaper, we discuss how SimScale, as a cloud-native engineering simulation platform, equips engineering teams worldwide with a wide range of functionalities and SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) accessibility to high-performance computing needed to maintain a competitive edge.
