SIMSOLID is an innovative structural analysis software that’s mainly developed for design engineers. It’s a robust solution that eliminates the process of meshing and geometry simplification. This is a useful benefit since the said processes are two of the most time-consuming, error-prone, and expertized-centric tasks of customary FEA (finite element analysis). The system has a computational engine that can apply an innovative extension to the external approximations theory in analyzing CAD geometry without any need for meshing. SIMSOLID is a fast application that is ideal for users that need to prepare models within minutes. It inspects complex parts and large assemblies, using theoretical and traditional FEA. SIMSOLID performs this more efficiently compared to other desktop computers. SIMSOLID is available using Altair Units.

The main benefits of SIMSOLID are its removal of CAD mesh process, a wide range of analytics capabilities, cutting-edge computational engine, and its use of a methodology that’s fast and efficient. Here are more details:

Elimination of CAD Mesh

SIMSOLID introduced several new techniques that can integrate directly to fully-featured CAD assemblies with no meshing required. It lets design engineers work within their processes and analyze the CAD geometric efficiently and quickly, all without having to deal with modification and simplification. Because of this, the system can eliminate the need to work with CAD mesh steps which are error-prone, arduous, labor-extensive, and are appealing only for a seasoned veteran in simulation and CAD.

Large Analytical Scope

Its analysis breadth is one of SIMSOLID’s biggest advantage. It leverages a unique technology which provides a radical analysis suite without having to go through countless setting as a traditional FEA app does. Instead of manual meshing, the system uses adaptive analysis and there is no configuration needed for material & geometric nonlinear analysis.

Innovative Computational Engine

The software uses an innovative, extensions-based computational engine that does not utilize point-wise DOF (degrees of freedom) which is the common method of traditional FEA. Instead, its DOF is the functions that feature geometrical support like areas, point clouds, link clouds, and volume. With this, it’s easier to handle geometrical imperfections (gaps, penetrations, ragged contact areas, etc.) and assembly contact.

Efficient and Fast Methodology

SIMSOLID applies efficient and fast methodology and for controlling the solution accuracy by using multi-pass adaptive. Also, the platform enables design engineers to define adaptivity either on a completely global or partly local basis. Thanks to this, the system triggers high-quality performance metrics for memory digital footprint and analysis time. This leads to users quickly solving complex and large assemblies on their desktop.
