Simulation capabilities for Solid Edge users range from Solid Edge Simulation Express for individual parts, to Solid Edge Simulation for assembly analysis, to Femap for defining and analyzing complete systems and FloEFD for Solid Edge computational fluid dynamics (CFD). These solutions provide a scalable upgrade path for those who are required to solve more challenging engineering problems.

Solid Edge Simulation Express

  • Based on Femap
  • Embedded in Solid Edge
  • Part validation
  • Statics/modal
  • NX Nastran Solver
  • Multi-discipline engineer
