ASME Digital Twin Summit: Digital Twins and Cloud-Native Physics Simulation
Across industries, physics simulation plays an important role in unlocking the full value of digital twins; Be it optimizing a maintenance interval, increasing operational efficiency, or informing field operations decisions. Yet physics simulation models traditionally reside in on-premises software and hardware stacks that limit their participation in digital twin scenarios. Cloud-native physics simulation changes this. With building simulation models in the cloud, simulation is both programmatically accessible and scalable, moving seamlessly from design to operations use cases. In this webinar, presented at ASME‘s 2021 Digital Twin Summit, we take a look at these aspects in principle and review a hands-on example of a digital twin enabled by cloud-native simulation.

“The SimScale platform has allowed us to develop and test scenarios including ventilation flow paths and understanding the dynamics between building fabric, airtightness, window natural ventilation design, and CO2 concentrations in various utilisation scenarios. The platform has given us quality, visually digestible output to inform decision-making and to compare results against our monitored data from our extensive post-occupancy studies. Working with SimScale has allowed us to study our learning spaces in a way we never have before. It has helped inform us on which design strategies may provide the biggest impact on performance. The visual outputs have real value, not just in terms of informing our decision-making, but potentially in communicating how classrooms can work and feel to clients and stakeholders.”
“When I started with SimScale, I knew from my previous experience how simulations are structured and work, but I had forgotten some details over the years. The great tutorials, documentation, and personal conversations with support have brought me up to date within 2 months of using SimScale. I am now well versed and use SimScale even with smaller problems to confirm my pre-calculations and to quickly compare design studies.”
SimScale is the world’s first cloud-native SaaS engineering simulation platform, giving engineers and designers immediate access to digital prototyping early in the design stage, throughout the entire R&D cycle, and across the entire enterprise. By providing instant access to a single fluid, thermal, and structural simulation tool built on the latest cloud computing technology, SimScale has moved high-fidelity physics simulation technology from a complex and cost-prohibitive desktop application to a user-friendly web application, accessible to any designer and engineer in the world.
