Structural Mechanics Engineer

Enables comprehensive structural mechanics engineer simulations covering statics, implicit and explicit dynamics, acoustics across a broad range of industrial applications

The SIMULIA 3DEXPERIENCE Structural Mechanics Engineer (SSU-OC) Role is a comprehensive role to perform structural integrity assessment of any type of product, providing:

  • Structural analyses (static or quasi-static, frequency, buckling, mode-based steady-state or transient dynamic, random response, non-linear dynamic)
  • Thermal analyses or sequential thermal-stress analyses (both transient or steady state)
  • Coupled multiphysics analyses, including the thermal-electrochemical procedure useful for battery engineering perspective
  • Axis symmetric idealization for fast structural analyses, especially useful in a preliminary design context to determine trends
  • Advanced capability from modeling and meshing, with possible automated creation (e.g.mid-surfacing), scenario definition, execution, results visualization, and report generation
  • Embedded tokens for running the analysis

SIMULIA Durability Analysis

Structural Mechanics Engineer Benefits

  • Analyze and validate structural strength during concept, basic and detailed design phases to minimize cost of prototyping, reduce weight. Reduce risks associated with structural certification.
  • Detailed structural validation from sub-system level to coupon level
  • Minimize vehicle weight, thus maximizing efficiency and range
  • Increase certification confidence in early and detailed design phases
  • Reduce expensive and challenging physical tests

SIMULIA Buckling Analysis

Structural Mechanics Highlights

  • Efficient and automated creation of simulation models directly from design data reducing modelling times
    Multistep structural scenarios including: Static, Frequency, Thermal, Buckling, Implicit/Explicit Dynamics, Linear Dynamics and more
  • Seamless associativity/integration with geometry for generative simulation including functionality for simulation geometry preparation
  • Productive apps for large model 3D visualization/post-processing and XY plotting enabling design insight and decision making from results
  • Includes execution on up to 8 Cores

Solve Complex Engineering Problems

  • Enable your engineering team to conduct a large variety of analysis procedures (linear and nonlinear static, nonlinear implicit and explicit dynamic, frequency, thermal, and more) to ensure validation accuracy and robustness.
  • Use implicit and explicit methods to cover a very wide range of structural simulation applications such as drop tests, impacts, crash, snap fits, gasket compression and pre-loaded bolted assemblies.
  • Efficiently handle large displacements, large rotations and large strain, improving simulation accuracy. Simulate multiple and sequential load cases to represent exactly the real loading conditions.

Provides a Productive Meshing and Modeling Environment

  • Use reliable contact detection capability to ensure accurate interactions prediction even on large models.
  • Enable users to simulate any type of geometry with reliable meshing tools (beam, shell, or solid including tetrahedron and brick elements) and improve pre-processing efficiency.
  • Use the large material models library to define the right behavior (including non-linear behavior such as hyper-elasticity or plasticity) and ensure simulation fidelity.
  • Standardize and democratize your simulation workflows enabling experts to easily customize the user interface and guide non-experts or first-time users through the simulation workflow.
