Simcenter 3D


Simcenter 3D is a unified, scalable, open and extensible environment for 3D CAE with connections to design, 1D simulation, test, and data management. Simcenter 3D speeds the simulation process by combining best-in-class geometry editing, associative simulation modeling and multi-discipline solutions embedded with industry expertise. Fast and accurate solvers power structural, acoustics, flow, thermal, motion, and composites analyses, as well as optimization and multi-physics simulation.

Simcenter 3D is available as a standalone simulation environment. It is also available completely integrated with NX delivering a seamless CAD/CAE experience.

Acoustic Simulations

Simcenter offers interior and exterior acoustic analysis within an integrated solution that helps you make informed decisions during the early design stages so you can optimize your product’s acoustic performance. A unified and scalable modeling environment combined with efficient solvers and easy-to-interpret visualization capabilities enable you to quickly gain insight into the acoustic performance of your product.


In the quest to make products lighter yet stronger, manufacturers are increasing their use of composite materials. It is also prohibitively expensive to create prototypes of products made from composites, so simulation must play a key role in the development of new products using laminate composite materials. Simcenter is at the leading edge of composites analysis through continuous development of material models and element types. Simcenter speeds the entire process for simulating laminate composite materials through a seamless connection to composites design, accurate solvers and comprehensive post-processing.

Fluid Dynamics Simulation

Since the real-world performance of your product depends on how it interacts with fluids, either gases, liquids or a combination of both, you need to predict how those fluids behave, and to be able to turn their influence to your product's advantage.

Simcenter provides industry leading computational fluid dynamics software that allows you to simulate almost any engineering problem that involves the fluids, structures and all of the associated physics.

Çoklu Cisimler Dinamiği

Simcenter, mekanizmaların ve mekatronik sistemlerin konumlarını, hızlarını, ivmelerini ve hareket halinde üzerinde bulunan yükleri analiz etmek için güçlü ve yüksek doğruluk oranına sahip çözüm yaklaşımları sunar.

Multiphysics Simulation

Complex industrial problems require solutions that span a multitude of physical phenomena, which often can only be solved using simulation techniques that cross several engineering disciplines. 

Structural Simulation

Understanding how a component or product assembly reacts under stress or vibration is critical in any industry, but as products and materials become increasingly complex, engineers need tools that go beyond linear statics analyses. Simcenter includes the structural solutions you need for a wide range of structural analysis problems within a single user environment. You no longer need one tool for linear statics, another to study fatigue, and yet another for nonlinear analysis. As a result, engineering departments can consolidate analysis tools, and you only need to know a single user interface.

Thermal Simulation

Simcenter includes comprehensive, best-in-class thermal simulation capabilities that can help you to understand the thermal characteristics of your product and subsequently tailor your thermal management solution for optimal performance.


Electromagnetic Simulations

Simcenter includes distinct low and high-frequency electromagnetic simulation capabilities for the unique demands in each domain. Expand your insight into the performance of electromechanical components, energy conversion, design and siting of antennas, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and electromagnetic interference (EMI). A range of dedicated solvers (time and frequency based, linear and nonlinear, finite and boundary element) offers a transformative CAE process, with simulations ranging from a fast, initial analysis to inherent realism for final verification.


Efficiently mesh your models using extensive modeling functions for automatic and manual mesh generation of 1D, 2D and 3D elements in addition to numerous techniques for the application of loads and boundary conditions. User-defined geometry edits, mesh and boundary conditions are all associated to the base design, which means when the base design geometry changes, you can rapidly update your model. This approach greatly reduces downstream modeling time, which results in huge time savings across a project’s many design-analysis iterations.


How can I reduce material in a component or change its properties while ensuring it continues to meet performance targets? Simcenter delivers engineering optimization techniques that can help you answer these this question by systematically searching for the best design that satisfies certain criteria. Reduce component weight or find the right combination of parameters to improve product performance through comprehensive topology, geometry, and parameter optimization capabilities.

Pre / Post Processing

Reduce the time you spend preparing analysis models, and spend more time evaluating results. Quickly move from multi-CAD geometry data to a complete, run-ready analysis model using unique tools for CAE geometry editing, comprehensive meshing, FE assembly management, multi-CAE solver environments, and fast simulation results post-processing and reporting.

Simulation Automation & Scalability

As companies increase their reliance on simulation, they are seeking ways to speed-up the analysis process and increase simulation throughput. One way to increase simulation throughput is to capture repetitive CAE processes, standardize them, and then automate them. Simcenter allows you to capture the expertise of senior analysts and make it available for junior engineers in your organization to use in the form of wizards or templates.
