Powered by the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, SIMULIA delivers realistic simulation software that helps engineers and analysts reveal the world we live in


Discover the eight SIMULIA Disciplines below

SIMULIA Disciplines
A comprehensive set of process capture, management, replay and deployment capabilities


To increase the value of simulation investment, the Automation discipline includes capabilities to allow users to develop, store, manage, deploy, share, and replay standard methods for simulation-driven design.  Use of standardized methods reduces error, increases efficiency, and maximizes simulation value by spreading the knowledge and know-how embedded in simulation processes and allowing replication of these processes throughout the enterprise.

SIMULIA Automation
Electromagnetic simulation technology including CST studio suite to guide decisions and improve product performance and quality


Electromagnetics simulation discipline includes technology for simulation of electromagnetic waves propagation and signal strength related to design and positioning of devices for communication and detection.  Technology from CST Studio Suite is connected to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to allow a wide range of high-frequency and low-frequency scenarios to be efficiently simulated related to electromagnetic performance and device placement.

Steady-state and transient internal and external flow (including heat transfer) around and through solids and structures using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) directly connected to the design geometry


The Fluids discipline covers steady-state and transient internal and external flow around and through solids and structures using Computational Fluid Dynamics technology. A fully-featured Navier-Stokes solver is used for native roles on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. Internal and external fluid domain models can be developed directly from the CATIA or SOLIDWORKS design geometry providing an integrated modeling & simulation capability. On the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, fluid simulation methods can be defined, stored, replayed, and maintained allowing customers to develop and centralize on their own best-practices to increase quality, reliability, and efficiency of structural validation.

SIMULIA Mutlibody Dynamics
Multibody simulation technology to verify complex product motion

Multibody Dynamics

Multibody Dynamics discipline includes technology enabling engineers to simulate the complex non-linear kinematic and dynamic motion behavior motion, kinematics, dynamics, and performance of any mechanical or mechatronic system.  A browser-based environment powered by the Simpack multibody simulation solver is delivered  to allow the behavior of product mechanisms and systems to be validated and improved.

Drive Innovation by exploring multiple alternatives across the complete range of operating scenarios, all to make better decisions and optimal designs


The Optimization discipline provides capabilities to automatically run and re-run simulation methods with varying parameters allowing design space exploration and optimization using Isight technology.  Tens, hundreds, or even thousands of simulations can be automatically run to provide an entire neighborhood of data points for comparison and selection.  Within these data sets, optimal design points can be discovered and chosen to reduce weight and cost and increase durability, strength, and lifespan.

PLM Services for SIMULIA
Connect standalone simulation products to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform for collaboration, sharing and connection with platform technologies

PLM Services for SIMULIA

Existing users of SIMULIA standalone products can take advantage of many benefits of using the 3DEXPERIENCE platform including capture and sharing of existing analysis methods, easy collaboration with other analysts, and publishing their work for others to build upon.  Abaqus, SimPack, XFlow, and CST Studio Suite are currently supported.

A comprehensive set of structural analysis solutions using ABAQUS Fea to guide design decisions and improve product performance and quality


Structures simulation includes Finite Element Analysis (FEA) using Abaqus for solids and structures to model linear and nonlinear static, thermal, dynamic, and impact effects.  Realistic simulation includes complete material behavior (for metals, elastomers, composites, and many other materials), contact and impact, and large motion.  Fracture/failure analysis can be included.  Fatigue simulation and lifecycle estimation is provided using fe-safe technology. Integrated directly with CAD models generated within CATIA & SOLIDWORKS, a wide range of scenarios can be efficiently modeled & simulated from single parts to complete assemblies allowing simulation to become a core part of product design & engineering processes.

Capabilities to model and simulate complex multi-disciplinary systems


The Systems discipline provides capabilities to model and simulate complex multi-disciplinary systems that include control systems, mechanisms, flexible bodies, and multiple simulation domains such as fluid-structure interaction.  Logical and physical models can be coupled together.  Multidisciplinary experiments can be run and re-run to evaluate and validate system performance reducing design time and risk-of-failure in physical testing

SIMULIA Discipline FAQs

What can Structural simulation reveal?

With SIMULIA Structures technology, you can answer many fundamental question in advance of or as a replacement for physical testing such as:

  • How can I improve my design?
  • Will it break if I drop if? How will it break?
  • Will it leak?
  • How long will my product last? How can I make it last even longer?

Answering these questions with simulation reduces costs, eliminates errors, and shortens design cycles.

What can Fluids simulation reveal?

Fluid simulation is an important aspect of product and vehicle design, from cabin cooling to aerodynamic drag calculations. Questions on the impacts of design change on fuel efficiency and drag, noise reduction, lubrication and more can be answered in a virtual environment. Avoiding or minimizing expensive and time-consuming physical testing is especially important in today’s regulatory environment such as within the World harmonized Light vehicles Test Protocol (WLTP) regulations.

What can Electromagnetic simulation reveal?

Electromagnetic simulation can answer questions in relation to:

  • Will my product meet technical specifications?
  • Is my product power efficient?
  • How much will it heat up?
  • How will heating change its performance?
  • Will it comply with regulations and get certified?
  • Will my components interfere with each other?

In today’s complex mechatronic product design environment, there is no time to make mistakes or risk a test failure especially when simulation can be used to avoid most such errors.

What can Multibody Systems/Motion simulation reveal?

Motion simulation can answer important design questions during design long before prototypes become available, including:

  • How does the system move?
  • What are the internal and external forces?
  • What are the bearing loads?
  • How much power is generated?

This can reduce their design time and increase their confidence in their final design while they advance toward zero prototyping.

What can Automation and Optimization reveal?

By automating simulation processes to drive optimization, interesting questions about not just the physics, but the entire design space can be answered.

Questions such as:

  • How can my current design be made more robust?
  • Can I improve the performance of my design?
  • What is the trade off relationship between product requirements?Which design variable has the most impact on KPIs?
