What’s New in Simcenter 3D

Technology Integration


Your products experience a broad array of physical phenomena every day from the forces they withstand, the heat they operate in, the sound they produce, and the inertia they feel. To accurately predict behavior of your products, you need to be able to simulate all of these phenomena – even when they are interacting. This latest release of Simcenter 3D expands and deepens the level of simulation technology available within the unified, scalable, open and extensible environment.

Supporting Generative Design

Simulation is at the heart of generative design. Results from a number of different simulations help you explore and define the design space for your product. Simcenter 3D continues to be at the forefront of generative design though integration with design exploration and new capabilities that help you generate innovative, lightweight designs faster.

Enhanced Industry Workflows

Motion Subtech

The expansion and integration of new technologies into Simcenter 3D enhances industry-specific applications. For example, airframe engineers can introduce submechanisms, like landing gear assemblies, into the full aircraft mechanism. Additionally, new universal connections help auto engineers efficiently create multiple variants of the same finite element assembly for different types of analyses like NVH, crash, durability.

Expanded Nonlinear Solutions

SOL 402

To simulate real-world conditions, you usually need a powerful nonlinear-based solver. A major focus for this Simcenter 3D release was broadening the nonlinear capabilities and solutions in NX Nastran and LMS Samtech Samcef.

More efficient and accurate simulations in support of performance engineering

Simcenter 3D v12 - Willy Bakker

The latest release of Simcenter 3D integrates multiple technologies from different tools all under one platform, enabling simulation to drive design direction. Simcenter 3D capitalizes on Siemens’ deep experience in structural dynamics, acoustics, motion, and nonlinear analysis, this new release is enhanced with highly sophisticated technologies to enable more efficient and accurate simulations in support of performance engineering.
