Structural Performance Engineering

The structural complexity of modern aircraft has increased the structural analysis demand and the need to improve traceability and global analysis workflow which can have a major impact on reducing non-recurring program costs from structural design. An integrated end-to-end structural analysis with our solution connects the design, loads, finite element method (FEM) ad margin of safety processes, improving productivity, traceability and design scalability, saving millions of dollars in cash burn.

Increased competition, pressure on design cost and innovative designs have increased aircraft structural complexity and placed a strain on profitability. With structures warranting up to 60 percent of the non-recurring cost in an aircraft program, structural workflow pains can lead to program delays as much as five years and development overrun costs up to 50 percent. In parallel, the contractual penalties that manufacturers must pay customers are reaching billions of dollars.

In addition, global engineering teams are expanding the risk-sharing partners and suppliers involved in aircraft structural design & assessment, demanding improved traceability for certification and automation. The root problem in current aero structural workflows lies in the siloed approach involved disconnected systems, teams, and tools. The structural analysis involving design, loads calculation, finite element methods (FEM), and margin of safety is not fully integrated, resulting in communication delays, lack of traceability for certification, risk of errors and delays in implementing design changes.

A streamlined, end-to-end process with our solution portfolio brings CAD/CAE integration and automation, improving productivity by 30 percent and accelerating program development and certification by two years. This integrated approach utilizes the power of simulation data management and class-leading CFD and FEA tools for accurate loads generation, FEM and MOS analysis.

Aircraft Engine Performance Engineering

Achieving performance requirements for emissions, noise, energy efficiency, safety, reliability in complex aircraft engine systems requires a platform that provides an integrated view of a large set of disciplines. By uniquely combining robust design space exploration, scalable multi-physics, dynamics and CFD capabilities, industry-leading physical testing and experienced engineering services, Siemens Digital Industry Software portfolio delivers engineering insight on all levels.

Aircraft Performance Engineering

The aerodynamic, structural, and system choices of today define the aircraft performance of tomorrow and can make or break the aircraft program’s 10 to 40 year future. An integrated digitalization strategy accelerates aircraft programs and reduces engineering risk to achieve better designs faster, thus eliminating costly issues later in design cycle.

Composites

In the quest to make products lighter yet stronger, manufacturers are increasing their use of composite materials. Simcenter is at the leading edge of composites analysis through continuous development of material models and element types. Simcenter speeds the entire process for simulating laminate composite materials through a seamless connection to composites design, accurate solvers and comprehensive post-processing.

Meshing

Efficiently mesh your models using extensive modeling functions for automatic and manual mesh generation of 1D, 2D and 3D elements in addition to numerous techniques for the application of loads and boundary conditions. User-defined geometry edits, mesh and boundary conditions are all associated to the base design, which means when the base design geometry changes, you can rapidly update your model. This approach greatly reduces downstream modeling time, which results in huge time savings across a project’s many design-analysis iterations.

Motion Analysis

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.

Pre / Post Processing

Reduce the time you spend preparing analysis models, and spend more time evaluating results. Quickly move from multi-CAD geometry data to a complete, run-ready analysis model using unique tools for CAE geometry editing, comprehensive meshing, FE assembly management, multi-CAE solver environments, and fast simulation results in post-processing and reporting.

Structural Analysis

Understanding how a component or product assembly reacts under stress or vibration is critical in any industry, but as products and materials become increasingly complex, engineers need tools that go beyond linear statics analyses. Simcenter includes the structural solutions you need for a wide range of structural analysis problems within a single user environment.

Thermal Analysis

Simcenter includes comprehensive, best-in-class thermal simulation capabilities that can help you to understand the thermal characteristics of your product and subsequently tailor your thermal management solution for optimal performance.
