Simulation-based Innovation, Design, and Manufacturing are driving the solution to important challenges facing society today—from electrification to sustainability to communications to livable cities. A holistic approach is needed including Electromagnetics, Material Science, Fluids, Structures, Multibody Simulation and other technologies. SIMULIA along with other Dassault Systèmes brands such as CATIA, DELMIA, and BIOVIA are working together to deliver new solutions united on the shared data from the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.
The Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP) determines not only how to evaluate vehicle emissions and consumption but has also expanded to include how to report expected range for electric vehicles. With the simulation solution offered by SIMULIA, OEMs and suppliers can optimize vehicle and component designs in order to meet the more stringent limits on emissions. Virtual testing is allowed as a substitute for physical testing in WLTP, and SIMULIA expertise helps users to set up a WLTP compliance regime that will be approved by the regulator.
Urban Air Mobility is an attractive new potential market, with start-ups as well as established aerospace companies developing concepts for electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) vehicles. Although these vehicles have incredible promise in alleviating traffic congestion on the ground, enormous engineering challenges must first be overcome. The breadth of the SIMULIA portfolio can help this industry to rapidly develop aerodynamically efficient, quiet, and safe concept vehicles.
Additive Manufacturing has opened up new possibilities for product design. Yet, the industry still struggles with unknowns and variables such as: part distortions, residual stress, process repeatability, and microstructure evolutions among other challenges. Our award winning simulation application for additive provides an accurate end-to-end framework with validated predicted capability for distortion, residual stress and micro-structure evolution.
5G promises high speed communication, low latency interaction and support for huge numbers of connected devices. New technologies will be enabled across many industries, allowing companies to deliver innovative new solutions to their customers. But delivering the expected high performance, to specification, on time and on budget, poses a significant engineering challenge. Consistent use of realistic simulation, from early concept exploration to virtual compliance validation, is the only way that this challenge can be met.
DigitalROCK? provides the first reliable, predictive technology for digital pore-scale simulation of relative permeability. The ability to accurately simulate two-phase flow, such as oil and water, through reservoir rock was co-developed and extensively validated with oil and gas industry leaders.
The pace and challenge of electrification is accelerating. Whether an existing enterprise serving the Transportation & Mobility industry or a disruptive newcomer, it is impossible to succeed in the world of Electric Vehicles without the knowledge and know-how of simulation and a unified approach to developing and validating these complex interconnected systems—from batteries to electric drives, while taking into consideration vehicle architecture and driving experience.
