Calculation and Simulation

Find shortcuts to smarter and more advanced analytics

When is calculation and simulation used?

 

By using calculation and simulation, both time and money are saved and a reduced environmental impact. Simulate your designs and secure function and performance at an early stage before a physical product is manufactured. Optimize the design for load cases and get a more robust product in combination with less material consumption.

Calculation close to construction

Autodesk Inventor enables you to directly control and optimize your design in your CAD environment. With the help of the built-in FEM tools, you ensure that the construction can withstand the loads to which it will be subjected. FEM close to the designer means that the CAD models can be changed as long as the connection to the FEM tools is maintained. You just have to update and then analyze again.

 

Stress Analysis

Stress Analysis provides the opportunity to subject parties and compilations to static loads. It is a linear FEM program that can control bending, stress, strain and natural oscillations with the modal module. The program can be used for material optimization where the module prepares parametric measurements, which are needed to withstand the forces or bends to which a product is subjected. If the model in the program is considered to have too thin goods, Stress Analysis creates new 3D models or turns the model into scale objects. In addition, the program helps to reduce the weight of the model through the Shape Generator, which suggests which areas the material thickness can be reduced.

 

Frame Analysis

Frame Analysis is for welded or screwed frames. Here, Inventor works with 1D objects (balcony objects). Bending, stress, strain, and much more are quickly controlled using this module.

 

Dynamic Simulation

Dynamic Simulation means motion simulation. Here is information on what forces are needed to make products move according to specified conditions. In addition, it is possible to reintroduce the kinetic energy into the static Stress Analysis module.

 

Nastran In-CAD

Autodesk Inventor provides the ability to use Nastran In-CAD. Nastran In-CAD is a non-linear FEM program where, for example, heat, buckling and challenge analyzes can be performed. Unlike a linear FEM program, Nastran In-CAD not only examines what the product looks like before applying the force, but iterates the mold step by step by applying the force and controlling what happens to the mold. Nastran In-CAD works with different types of material while Stress Analysis only works with uniform material.
