Simulation Engineer for Education

Simulation EngineerProvides access to the advanced tools used by simulation experts across all industries, in a format that is aligned with student needs and skill levels

Built specifically for those focusing on developing accurate physics simulations, Simulation Engineer is the perfect role for supporting your Finite Element or Computational Fluid Dynamics coursework, or for ensuring maximum performance and efficiency of your designs in project based learning activities.

Simulation Engineer combines all the simulation roles available in the 3DEXPERIENCE Edu portfolio in a single role, plus all the geometry modelling functionality you’ll need to create your models. You will be able to perform complex thermal and mechanical simulations including non-linear effects like radiation, contact, and complex material responses. You will be able to evaluate a wide range of flow conditions including steady-state, transient, transonic and supersonic flows, for Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluids. You will be able to simulate the build process for a wide range of additive manufacturing methods and materials. Abaqus/CAE users can also use this role to connect their current Abaqus Teaching or Research License with the 3DEXPERIENCE platform allowing them to leverage the best capabilities of each.

Important notes regarding simulation:

• By default, model sizes are limited to 250,000 nodes for structural and plastics models, and 1,000,000 nodes for computational fluid dynamics simulations. Also by default, user subroutines are not supported. The Simulation Researcher role may be purchased to remove these node limits and to enable user-subroutines.
• Jobs must be executed on the same machine as the open Graphical User Interface (GUI).
• Parallel processing: Role includes support for execution on up to 4-cores for structures and plastics and 8-cores for fluids. Increased parallelization is currently not available.

Simulation Researcher for Education

Unleash the power of SIMULIA for your academic research activities

For some of you, the node limits included in the Academia version of 3DEXPERIENCE will not be sufficient to support the size or accuracy requirements of your simulations. Others will need access to user subroutines to create, for example, user-defined materials, or thermal or distributed loading conditions.

The Simulation Researcher Role provides you with access to unlimited model sizes and user subroutines, identical to what is available in the commercial release.

Note that this role removes default academic limitations only; it does not include additional applications or functionality. Like all other roles, it’s assigned on a named-user basis, providing commercial-level simulation capabilities only to those that need it.
