Discover SIMULIA Simulation Solutions

Reliable and repeatable simulation that powers sustainable innovation.

SIMULIA is the simulation brand of Dassault Systèmes. True to the above value, SIMULIA delivers realistic simulation applications that accelerate the process of evaluating the performance, reliability and safety of materials and products prior to physical prototype commitment. For companies to remain competitive, current product design and development initiatives require modern technology…and a lot of it! SIMULIA solutions empower innovators by offering game-changing technologies built for everyone.

In this post, we will take a look at a few of the disciplines covered by SIMULIA and the simulation solutions offered for each:


SIMULIA Structures

Across all industries, analysts are often faced with both routine and complex structural engineering problems. SIMULIA offers structural analysis solutions through both Abaqus FEA and The 3DEXPERIENCE Platform, which allow modeling of a range of problem types including linear and nonlinear static, thermal, dynamic, acoustic and electromagnetic. Purchase of Abaqus Unified FEA tokens also unlocks the Power of the Portfolio, which is a suite of complimentary products that allow organizations to unleash the true power of simulation driven design.

  • Abaqus CAE – efficiently create, edit, monitor, diagnose, and visualize analyses.
  • Abaqus Standard – solve for static events where highly accurate stress solutions are vital.
  • Abaqus Explicit – simulate brief, transient dynamic events.
  • fe-safe – run fatigue analysis that uses multiaxial strain-based fatigue methods.
  • TOSCA – delivers powerful topology and shape optimization solutions for design of lightweight, stiff, and durable parts and assemblies.
  • Isight – allows for the automation of multiple cross-disciplinary models and their execution via distributed compute resources.



SIMULIA’s suite of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulation solutions assist customers faced with challenges such as aerodynamics design and fluid flow analysis, as well as more complex and challenging problems like aeroacoustics – in fact, PowerFLOW is an industry-leader in this domain. With three complimentary fluids technologies, SIMULIA allows users to solve a vast array of problems in this space.

  • ,PowerFLOW – Utilizes transient, Lattice-Boltzmann-based physics to evaluate aerodynamic, aeroacoustic and thermal management earlier in the design process.
  • ,XFlow – Offers particle-based Lattice-Boltzmann technology to address complex CFD workflows involving high frequency transient simulations.
  • ,CFD in the 3DEXPERIENCE – Roles on the platform use a Navier-Stokes solver for steady-state and transient internal and external flow.


SIMULIA Electromagnetics

Electromagnetic components drive a rapidly increasing number of today’s products, and will undoubtedly be necessary for future developments, too. Our SIMULIA solution is CST Studio Suite, which allows for both high- and low-frequency electromagnetic simulation analysis. Common EM analysis subjects include:

  • Antennas & Filters – performance and efficiency.
  • EMC/EMI – electromagnetic compatibility and interference.
  • Human Body – exposure to EM fields.
  • Motors & Generators – electro-mechanical effects.
  • High-Power Devices – thermal effects.


  • AUTOMATION – develop, store, manage, deploy, share, and replay design methods.
  • MULTIBODY DYNAMICS – verify complex product motion.
  • OPTIMIZATION – find optimal designs.
  • SYSTEMS – model and simulate complex multi-disciplinary systems.
  • PLM SERVICES – share and collaborate on the 3DEXPERIENCE.
