Simcenter Amesim sequence

Simcenter Amesim is an integrated, scalable system simulation platform that allows system simulation engineers to virtually assess and optimize the mechatronic systems' performance. It boosts overall system engineering productivity from the early development stages until the final performance validation and control calibration.

Ready-to-use multi-physics libraries combined with application and industry-oriented solutions supported by powerful platform capabilities let system simulation engineers rapidly create models and accurately perform analysis.

Simcenter Amesim is an open environment that can be integrated into enterprise processes. It is easily coupled with major CAE, CAD, and controls software packages, can interoperate with the functional mockup interface (FMI), Modelica, and connect with other Simcenter solutions as well as Teamcenter.

electrical system simulation

Simulate and integrate electrical and electromechanical systems from concept design to control validation. Simcenter Systems helps optimize the dynamic performance of mechatronic systems, analyze power consumption, and design and validate control laws for electrical devices for the automotive, aerospace, industrial machinery, marine, and heavy equipment industries.

Optimize the dynamic behavior of hydraulic and pneumatic components while limiting physical prototyping to what's strictly necessary. With a wide choice of components, features, and application-oriented tools, Simcenter Systems allows you to model fluid systems for a wide range of applications, such as mobile hydraulic actuation systems, powertrain systems, or aircraft fuel and environmental control systems. Comprehensive component libraries support occasional and expert users when modeling fluid systems, from functional to detailed models. The seamless integration between libraries enables the design of any fluid system and the coupling with controls and other related systems in a single platform.

mechanical system simulation

Manage the increasing engineering complexity of integrated mechanical systems. Simcenter Systems offers state-of-the-art modeling techniques that allow multi-dimensional (1D, 2D, and 3D) dynamic simulations. It enables you to study rigid or flexible bodies and complex non-linear frictions by analyzing low- or high-frequency phenomena and taking into account coupling between mechanical structures and electric or hydraulic motion.

Address a great variety of architectures and technologies with the multiphysics system simulation approach. Powertrain electrification in automotive, reusable launch systems for the space industry, or the use of alternative fuels (LNG) for ships are examples of technology implementation that the modeling capabilities of Simcenter can support. You will be able to design and assess the impact of the propulsion system on various metrics, such as onboard power generation or vehicle pollutant emissions, by performing a complete analysis of cross-system influences in a single platform.

system integration

Simcenter Systems offers the integration of different simulation tools throughout the lifecycle of your system, from early design to the operation phase. This allows you to address the digital continuity challenge and increase the efficiency of your workflows and the collaboration between different departments. Simcenter Systems supports connections to a product lifecycle management (PLM) system and geometrical data, co-simulations between 1D and 3D CAE tools, design space exploration, model-based controls development, and interactions among different systems using the Functional Mockup Interface (FMI).

Simcenter Systems helps maximize thermal performance for HVAC and cabin comfort, vehicle thermal management, environmental control systems, or other thermal systems. Advanced post-processing features that graphically visualize energy flows in your system make it highly effective to optimize energy efficiency and to study the integration of energy recovery systems and their impact on performance and energy consumption. You can use the software to represent the real operating environment of your system, including interactions with surroundings when designing and validating your temperature control strategies.
