NX CAE is a group of innovative analytical tools which allow the user to carry out virtual 3D simulations in a fully integrated environment with NX CAD software. Starting from the NX 11 version, the numerical analyses have been replaced with a separate Simcenter 3D application, fully integrated with NX CAD.
Simcenter 3D is an innovative analytical environment based on the NX NASTRAN calculation solver and bringing together all areas of numerical analysis in one place. Furthermore, Simcenter 3D software is compatible with external simulation applications such as LMS Imagine.Lab Amesim or CD-ADAPCO (STAR-CMM+) ...
Simulation with NX CAE
The range of NX CAE software products offers a solution for everyone, whether you are an advanced analyst, engineer and designer as well as a beginner analyst.
NX CAE software produces precise simulation results regardless of the test type, starting with static analysis and ending with acoustics. Based on the received data, you can take key decisions at the virtual design stage, without carrying out long-lasting and costly physical tests.
Accurate Multi-Disciplinary Simulations
Narzędzia NX CAE umożliwiają przeprowadzanie analiz z wielu obszarów nauki oraz na każdym etapie projektowym. Oprogramowanie pozwala na szybkie, efektywne przygotowanie asocjatywnego modelu obliczeniowego, który następnie może być wykorzystany w różnych rodzajach analiz.
NX CAE makes it possible to perform analyses within many fields of science and at every stage of the design process. The software allows the user to quickly and efficiently prepare the associative computational model which can be then used to perform various types of analysis.
Integrated Numerical Analyses
NX CAE is fully compatible with NX CAD software and external applications for virtual analyses LMS Imagine.Lab Amesim and CD- ADAPCO (STAR-CMM+) etc.
NX CAE can be installed on the Windows or Linux and Mac OS system.
NX CAE – CAPABILITIES
NX CAE allows the user to implement the latest technologies and simulate various scenarios of performance of the designed element, mechanism or ready product. Virtual analyses can be used to eliminate design defects and will deliver unique information about the way in which the product behaves in real use.
NX CAE uses a wide range of tools for laying a mesh on the analyzed elements, starting from the 1D mesh, the surface mesh and many kinds of 3D mesh (3D tetrahedral, 3D swept mesh, 3D hybrid mesh etc.)
NX CAE has a unique function allowing you to prepare a model for simulation while not changing the original CAD file. The idealized part remains continuously associated with the input file.
The NX CAE simulation tools allow the user to take a unique approach to the task of analyzing assembles where many instances of the same parts are used. You can use the same mesh file for all instances of a specific element to reduce the computation time and allow further modifications.
INNOVATIVE LICENSING SYSTEM - TOKENS
The Simcenter 3D has a unique licensing system based on tokens. It allows you to flexibly use the wide range of available analyses without the need to buy additional single licenses for individual modules.
Each NX CAD/CAE/CAM suite contains the Synchronous Technology which allows you to directly edit 3D and 2D files sourced from any other CAD system.
The entire suite of the NX CAx solutions has the Polish interface version.
NX CAE has special applications for relevant types of simulation, e.g., for static analyses, thermal analyses, flows, kinematics and dynamics or plastic injection molding etc.
NX CAE CONFIGURATION
NX CAE contains a number of modules which are flexibly configurable and expandable to provide the customer with customized software.
NX STRESS WIZARD & NX VIBRATION WIZARD
Each version of NX CAD has integrated NX CAE tools for statistical analysis and for the examination of the natural frequency for a single solid body object.
Simcenter 3D is a comprehensive tool designed for the performance of numerical analyses and based on the NX NASTRAN solver. The solution integrates many computational disciplines within itself and works as Pre and Post. It allows you to perform static analyses, non-linear analyses, natural frequency analyses etc. for parts and assemblies.
The module for thermal computations, integrated with the NX CAE software, allows to handle complicated thermal issues. This module allows the user to analyse changeable thermal phenomena in time or simulate cyclical processes.
This module expands the analytical capabilities of NX CAE tools based on flow analyses (CFD). It provides the user with the ability to simulate windmills, various hypotheses of the turbulence process or an analysis combined with thermal analysis.
NX Motion is a tool which allows the user to generate and compute kinematic or dynamic simulations in parts and assemblies. It provides a wide range of possible interconnections of elements and allows you to add forces, dampers, toothed transmissions, toothed mechanisms, springs and 3D contact to the analysis to simulate the way in which the mechanisms work in the best possible way.
NX LAMINATES COMPOSITES
This is an addition allowing you to create material as laminate or composite material and to use it in a kind of analysis chosen by the user. The module provides the possibility to detect such phenomena as delamination or internal layer damage etc.
NX REXPONSE DYNAMICS
This module expands the NX CAE functional range with the capability to simulate reactions of the elements being analyzed to events such as impacts, random vibrations or excitation etc.
This is an addition which enables you to simulate the plastic injection process including the injection spot, relevant parameters of the injection process or the molded piece cooling.
This is an additional NX CAE module allowing the user to run an accurate process of designing composite material, including the arrangement of the material layers on 3D geometry. The module reduces the change introduction time by up to 95 % and ensures that the specifications and technical standards for the designed composite are observed.
