How LMS Virtual.Lab helps engineers capture real-world behavior
SIEMENS – Car in 3DEngineers around the world use computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided engineering (CAE) software to create, modify, analysis and optimize product designs. The basic principle is to capture real-world behavior literally on the screen or, in other words, make the virtual as realistic as possible.
This is quite a challenge if you think about it.
How would you go about designing a next-generation car or airplane?
How would you refine traits like acoustic performance or durability?
How could you be certain that the virtual product really will work as designed?
Engineers start from CAD to define the geometry and then move into LMS Virtual.Lab to refine the design using information from the physical world. This might be data acquired from theoretical assumptions or real-world testing. Test experts can use solutions like LMS Test.Lab and LMS SCADAS hardware to gather and crunch data, which is then used in calculations to refine the final product design.
Decades of software and solver development efforts have gone into LMS simulation solutions like LMS Virtual.Lab, LMS Imagine.Lab and LMS Samtech to help engineers answer tough questions like these. As a simulation tool designed to work with major CAD programs, LMS Virtual.Lab focuses on one idea: capturing true real-world behavior.
To give a more technical explanation, users can integrate data taken from real-world models into the simulated design, bridging the gap between the virtual and the real. In other words, engineers can re-use information from the test side of things to make better models on the simulation side. more> http://tinyurl.com/pjk5rvd
