Mechanical & Structural Analysis with Engineering Simulation in the Cloud
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 snap-fit pin component, commonly used 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.
“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 production-ready SaaS application for engineering simulation. By providing instant access to computational fluid dynamics and finite element analysis, SimScale has moved high-fidelity physics simulation technology from a complex and cost-prohibitive desktop application only available to experts in large companies to a user-friendly web application, accessible to any designer and engineer in the world.
