Extended Design Validation

Many birds partner with larger animals to clean ticks, insects and parasites from their skin in return for food

Extended Design Validation (Simulation)

Whilst many software technologies supporting simulation analysis can be complicated. Autodesk have developed a range of products to accommodate users at every level from beginner to advanced. A large focus of development has been bringing advanced analysis capabilities to the everyday engineer providing the ability to make upfront design decisions without having to source the capabilities of a specialist. 

The software platforms available provide an intuitive interface which is built directly within the user’s CAD application to ease workflow. The tools are set out logically and aligned to a linear workflow that can be easily used to create an environment for analysis. Comprehensive material properties are available reducing the need for external knowledge and results are delivered in a way that can be easily interoperated.

Simulation comes in several different forms including (FEA) Finite Element Analysis, (CFD) Computational Fluid Dynamics and Generative Design. The following technologies help you to predict, validate and optimise your products using accurate analyses that you can trust.

Finite Element Analysis 

FEAFinite Element Analysis (FEA) allows a user to predict product performance through linear, non-linear, thermal and dynamic analyses. The technology provides the ability to optimise the design and validate product behaviour before any manufacturing.

Computational Fluid Dynamics

CFDAccurate and flexible software for fluid dynamics, thermal management and airflow analysis. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) allows users to solve, analyse and make decisions earlier in the product development process.

Generative Design

Generative Design provides the ability to deliver innovative design and engineering solutions. Simultaneously generate multiple CAD-ready solutions based on manufacturing constraints and product performance requirements.
