Nonlinear Mechanical Analysis for Early-Stage Design
Engineering simulation in the cloud gives mechanical and structural engineers more detailed insight compared to physical testing, which is critical during the early stages of design exploration. SimScale offers multiple analysis types for engineers including linear and non-linear static analyses and leverages parallel computation capabilities to yield:
In this live demonstration, our experts show a step-by-step process for evaluating the performance of a casing snap-fit pin component, used commonly in industrial and automotive applications. Key design considerations that are explored include the survivability, stress points, and deformation behavior of the model, accounting for its weight and manufacturing costs.
David is one of the application engineers here at SimScale. He brings with him a marine engineering background as well as experience working within the CAE world. Multiphase CFD is his flavor of choice, with Heat Transfer and FEA close behind.
“We are really impressed with the SimScale platform. Thanks to the platform’s ease of use, the professional support of SimScale engineers and the perfect communication with them, we were able to efficiently perform simulations and sort out our design problems. It’s hard to imagine how much physical prototyping time and measures we saved thanks to virtual prototyping.”
“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.
