One of the toughest challenges a designer faces is to quickly determine whether an idea is viable or not. This is where a reliable simulation analysis tool can come in and save the day in a multitude of ways, says Peter Straetemans, senior consultant at TechniaTranscat’s Simulation Applications department in Germany.
Many companies are already taking advantage of CATIA integrated FEM simulation. CATIA V5 Analysis provides realistic design simulation capability within the CATIA design environment, allowing designers to perform analysis directly on their master reference model in CATIA. With some typical examples we provide an overview about the advantages and benefits of integrated FEM simulation in CATIA V5.
