This is the 4th post on the new items in NX7. In today’s post, I will review CAE or Lifecycle Simulation.
NX 7.5 offers major enhancements across the entire CAE portfolio. Some of the highlights are in the areas of multi-body dynamics, FE modeling of thin-walled structures, beam modeling, meshing, laminate composites and support for multi-physics solvers.
In addition, we have new product offerings for flexible body dynamics, durability analysis and model correlation.
Here are some of the key highlights:
NX 7 CAE Integrated Design and CAE NX assists you with developing analysis models faster than with traditional CAE pre-processors. NX 7 helps improve productivity with the introduction of new workflows for working with complex geometry, meshing thin-walled parts, beam and bolt modeling and more. NX’s tight integration with geometry means your engineers can keep pace with the latest design.
NX 7 CAE Integrated Multi-Discipline Solutions NX speeds multi-discipline workflows by integrating the broadest set of solver technologies all within a single environment. Access to multiple CAE solutions within one system and one user interface eliminates data transfer errors for faster coupled analyses. NX 7 expands its integrated multi-physics solutions to include durability and motion analysis with flexible bodies along with even more solutions for structural, thermal and flow analyses.
NX 7 CAE Integrated Analysis/Test Correlation NX 7 introduces two new products to enable rapid model correlation and update. Correlating digital models with measured test data enables engineers to gain confidence in a model’s ability to predict performance. While testing may still be required it can be significantly reduced. Even saving a single test has been shown to save weeks and months of development effort and thousands of dollars in budget.
