Reduce the cost of large-scale prototypes with CAE simulation.
From large, heavy-duty construction equipment to complex robotics, industrial manufacturers produce some of the most complex machinery on the market. Some of this equipment must withstand decades of wear in extreme weather conditions, while others must be able to manage the most delicate tasks with precision. Developing products that live up to these high standards requires realistic simulation.
Dassault Systèmes’s SIMULIA and 3DEXPERIENCE CAE solutions offer designers and engineers the toolsets they need to accelerate their development process. These toolsets can automate the design exploration and optimization process and enable fully-informed, performance-based decision making. They accurately predict complex real-world behavior of component parts, large-scale structures, and complete systems. With these digital twins, designers and engineers can test their ideas under limitless conditions, far faster and cheaper than physical prototyping.

For industrial machinery, there are usually numerous precisely machined parts in close contact, and wear is a major concern. Many SIMULIA workflows for this sector involve the structural analysis of components such as threaded joints, bearings and gears, while others involve simulating industrial processes such as extrusion, welding and shot peening.
Heavy Mobile Equipment
Important considerations in this field include the attachment of components such as buckets, the strength of the wheels or tracks, and fatigue in the thin-welded structures of the body. The interaction with the environment is also critical, and SIMULIA offers workflows for simulation material handling and the interacting of digging equipment with the ground.
Rotating components are the primary concern when designing turbomachinery, and SIMULIA provides best-in-class tools for rotodynamic analysis. Turbine blades and pump impellers experience especially strong dynamic forces from fluid flow, and there are special workflows for analyzing stress and fatigue life in these components.
Powertrain components are subject to massive forces and torques and often operate at great speed. SIMULIA simulation tools can be used to calculate the stress within rotating and reciprocating components, and the heating of the powertrain assembly.
SIMULIA helps tire manufacturers push their “Magic Triangle” (Wet Grip – Safety, Wear Resistance – Lifetime and Rolling Resistance – Fuel Efficiency) beyond current boundaries by optimizing their tires early in the design process, saving time and money before producing physical prototypes.
