From start to finish, tools to meet your needs

From digital validation of part and assembly designs and finite element analysis to fully embedded computational fluid dynamics, Solid Edge provides robust simulation capabilities to suit your needs.

Simulation Optimization

Solid Edge Simulation

Built-in finite element analysis (FEA) allows design engineers to digitally validate part and assembly designs within the Solid Edge environment. Solid Edge Simulation significantly reduces the need for physical prototypes, which lowers your material and testing costs, and saves design time.

Flow Simulation

Simcenter FLOEFD for Solid Edge

Fully embedded in Solid Edge, Simcenter FLOEFD for Solid Edge extends the power of CAD environments to computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis and optimizes product performance and reliability for fluid flow, heat transfer and electromagnetic effects.

Simcenter Flomaster for Solid Edge

A fast, flexible and accurate solution for modeling thermo-fluid systems, Simcenter Flomaster for Solid Edge automatically creates a model based on CAD data, aiding in the computation and visualization of flow velocity, temperature and pressure drop in pipe works in a 1D environment.

The prototypes were made in a virtual world. The first product is the end product. What I see on my screen is what’s really going to be there.

How Hydrauvision deals with pressure

Hydrauvision’s products are put through the toughest of tests, as they are used in rugged environments and must withstand substantial operational and environmental stress. And because they’re used in offshore applications, the products must pass strict regulatory compliance guidelines before they can be shipped. Hydrauvision’s customers expect high quality, dependability and reliability—but they also expect quick response and quick turnaround.
