Handle High Complexity with Nonlinear Solver


Solve complex nonlinear static structural problems with an intuitive advanced simulation technology powered by SIMULIA Abaqus, the proven world-class Finite Element Analysis Solver. Speed up post-processing and the visualization of large models. Capture a precise load history of multiple and sequential load cases.

Reuse Existing Designs through Tight Integration


Access Structural Professional Engineer directly from SOLIDWORKS Simulation and let your geometry and model features be transferred into the former with a single click. Set advanced simulations in less time by reusing loads, boundary conditions, mesh definitions, and material properties. Every time you modify your SOLIDWORKS CAD design, your simulation model in Structural Professional Engineer updates automatically.

Accelerate the Design Process with Cloud Computing


Enable multi-threaded cloud computing for rendering and visualization computations of your large-scale simulation data. Running your simulation on the cloud lets you access more processing cores. This helps you run complex simulations with speed, clarity, and control and make design decisions faster. It also frees up your local machines for other design or simulation work.

Boost Accuracy with Advanced Meshing Tools


Choose between controlled or automated mesh creation and generate high-quality solid and shell meshes. Select from different element types and shapes including quads and triangles for shell elements and bricks and tetrahedra for solid elements. Automate the creation of repetitive meshes with Rule-Based Meshing and automatic feature recognition for holes, fillets, and beads.

Save Time with General Contact


Define contact with greater ease, especially for multiple components and complex topology. Instead of setting contact pairs, use a single interaction to encompass contact globally. Maintain flexibility within the global definition to modify interactions of sub-regions or deactivate them if desired.

Accurately Simulate Complex Materials


Explore nonlinear material models including metal plasticity, rubber hyperelasticity, as well as viscoelasticity and material failure. Structural Professional Engineer helps you to simulate your material behavior realistically in conjunction with the various available element types and the robust and efficient Abaqus Solver.

Design Better Products with Easy Access to Simulation Data


Build your own simulation dashboards in the cloud. Use widgets to view all of your recent simulation content, track any running jobs or open up a simulation in more detail. Create a lightweight visualization of the geometry and simulation results and easily share engineering and design insights with non-specialist users.

Instill Innovation with a Cloud-Based Platform


With its expanding app portfolio, provided by your trusted partner, Dassault Systèmes, the 3DEXPERIENCE platform can meet all of your product needs. From ideation and program management, to design, manufacturing and documentation, it aims to give you the tools, data management, and collaborative environment needed to accelerate innovation. For example, storing data in the cloud lets you share your model and results in real time anywhere with a web browser. You can easily create dashboards to review and share the latest data and make informed decisions faster.
