Structural & Thermal Simulation

Solid Edge 2019 incorporates a suite of integrated solutions for structural, flow and thermal simulation. These solutions enable you to validate simple to complex designs with powerful simulation tools.

Optimize your product development process with simulation

A lot of products today combine electrical and mechanical elements. With IoT and WiFi connectivity, you have smaller and smaller components being packaged into increasingly hotter environments. However, thermal and flow factors are often at the end of the list of considerations of a designer or engineer during product development.

While getting the product to operational and manufacturable are very important, there are lots of other things to consider; simulation is one of them.

Simulation belongs at the front of your product development cycle because it provides critical insight that can change the outcome of your product design and layout. Simulation helps us to understand where we can make changes in a product to enhance its performance and durability. Performing studies prior to production in Solid Edge ensures you have a more reliable product that is less likely to fail.

Less product failures means more cost savings. As products become more reliable, you reduce the number of warranty claims. Your customers are happier.

Benefits of advanced simulation in Solid Edge

  • Stay competitive in your industry with increased go-to-market speed
  • Replaces traditional prototyping processes with a digital model
  • Perform design and analysis in an integrated, unified environment
  • Deal with “dirty” geometry and complex assemblies with advanced meshing technology

Solid Edge simulation solutions provide an all-purpose tool that is not restricted to any single application. Any product with fluid flow or heat transfer can be designed and analyzed using Solid Edge. Some examples include valves, heat exchangers, pumps, external aerodynamics, or even something as simple as a medicine bottle.
