Thermo-Mechanical Performance Engineering

The aircraft engine industry is under extraordinary pressure to improve performance and durability in their offerings to meet the demands of their commercial and defense customers. Additionally, there has been a shift in business model from purchase to lease where the maintenance is the responsibility of the engine maker.

Meeting these challenges requires significant innovations to improve engine structural, thermo-mechanical, flow and acoustics efficiency and robustness to operate over decades in harsh conditions. Our solutions help maximize efficiency, reliability and durability, while minimizing material and manufacturing costs and time to market.

While the current aircraft engine OEMs are working to increase monthly production and delivery rates, there are significant technological and architectural challenges yet to overcome.

New engine concepts, new materials, and the increasingly demanding specifications for fuel consumption, weight and efficiency, mean that you need high-performing, multi-disciplinary analysis software to help you manage the aircraft engine structural and mechanical engineering process. Simulation software need to support design choices that to take into account structural integrity, vibration, noise, loads, stress, thermal and thermo-mechanical effects, durability, etc.

Huge thermal loads induce structural deformations that may negatively impact the performance of engine turbines. With the degradation over the lifetime of the engine, more frequent inspections are required with possible engine stops for maintenance. Siemens PLM Software simulation portfolio helps aircraft engine manufacturers to better understand and predict thermo-mechanical and structural performance, including innovative materials like composites and additive manufacturing simulation process.

The insight and expertise of Siemens PLM Software engineering consultancy help your engineering teams understanding and overcoming these multi-disciplinary challenges by the creation of digital twins.

Możliwości rozwiązania

Explore the key areas of this solution.

Composites

Simulate the behavior of layered composite analysis structures and their progressive degradation.

Design Exploration

Design exploration software takes simulation to the next level by allowing users to determine appropriate values of variables that yield product designs that result in exceptional performance.

Design for Additive Manufacture

Quickly industrialize additive manufacturing at minimal costs thanks to Siemens end-to-end solution. Our solution helps you mitigate local and global defects happening during the build process.

Motion Simulation

Understanding the operating environments for intricate mechanical systems – like in photocopiers, sliding sunroofs, or wing flaps – can be challenging. Motion simulation calculates the reaction forces, torques, velocities, acceleration and more for mechanical systems. You can directly convert CAD geometry and assembly constraints into an accurate motion model or create your own motion model from scratch, and the embedded motion solver and robust post-processing capabilities allow you to study of a broad range of product behaviors.
