Simulation-Driven Design: Solving the Geometry Problem

One of the challenges of simulation is that geometry of CAD and traditional FEA are different, necessitating time consuming simplification work to define the mesh and resulting in losses in accuracy. Altair SimSolid takes a different approach, analyzing fully featured CAD assemblies directly with no absolutely no mesh.

Technical Papers

Andron Handling

Andron Handling needed to assess the strength of the welded fabrication and vertical clamping arms for both lifting and clamping loads. In previous analysis of this type in Altair SimSolid™, they would have removed the wheels from the model and applied reaction forces at the bottom of each of the clamp arms. In this case, Andron used a different approach that would not have been possible with previous FEA toolsets.

Customer Stories

Altair SimSolid Datasheet

Altair SimSolid is a structural analysis software developed specifically for rapidly evolving design processes. It eliminates geometry simplification and meshing, the two most time-consuming and expertise-extensive tasks done in traditional FEA, enabling the analysis of fully-featured CAD assemblies in minutes without meshing.
