Efficient workflows through network-based modeling
Grid-based simulation methods, such as FEM and CFD, deliver highly accurate results for three-dimensional considerations of static and dynamic phenomena with respect to individual components and simple assemblies. If you want to simulate complex dynamic systems, however, this approach has its limitations: huge amounts of data and long computation times for instance.
SimulationX models on the other hand are based on a network of individual equation-based sub-models. This allows for systems which consist of many components from different domains (e.g. mechanics, control engineering, fluid power, thermal etc.) to be modeled in a very efficient way.
- You can save time during the modeling and simulation process
- The system models are clearly structured and easy to modify.
- Many different variants can be evaluated with ease.
Simulations as accurate as necessary and as simple as possible
The sub-models contain equations for the description of physical properties and can be connected with each other through specific physical connections (mechanical, pneumatic, hydraulic, electrical etc.). To keep things simple, they include only those physical influences and parameters that are really necessary for the analysis.
If needed, you can also couple the network-based model with FEM or CFD simulations in SimulationX.
