Simulation Model Build Engineer

Provide the detailed essential mesh and assembly modeling, to reduce non-value added tasks, and build solver-ready finite element models timely and efficiently with the Simulation Model Build Engineer Role

The SIMULIA 3DEXPERIENCE Simulation Model Build Engineer (SBE) Role is focused on the creation, build, and preparation of large and detailed finite element models, for structural simulation across a wide range of industry applications. The role employs automated meshing and assembly techniques and collaborative inputs from design, modeling, and simulation teams.

To build next generation automobiles, aircraft, ships, engines and e-batteries, model-based engineering requires a modern sophisticated platform to manage the complexities of automated meshing, multiple model configurations, and the connections and physics of these structural assemblies. Many structural simulations depend on smart, efficient, well-organized modeling of these assemblies. often requiring multiple finite element representation (FEMrep) variations in the assembly components – e.g. detailed vs coarse mesh, supplier solver mesh vs native design-generated mesh, lumped mass of an engine block, distributed fuel mass, etc – and the ease of interchangeability of these FEMreps, and re-useability of design data. Many manufacturers streamline their digital modeling process with specialized teams dedicated to pre-simulation preparation of detailed and/or large complex assemblies.
