At many companies, CAE is performed as an isolated activity within a single functional team or engineering discipline. Hexagon’s multiphysics cosimulation solutions enable engineers to model the interactions between physics disciplines, enhancing the performance, safety and reliability of products.
CAE simulation tools can offer incredible insights into product performance. However, most focus on a single physics discipline, where in reality the performance, safety and reliability of products is greatly influenced by the interactions between multiple physics disciplines. This is where multiphysics cosimulation – also known as coupled simulation or connected simulation – adds unique value.
Multiphysics cosimulation provides engineers with more complete and holistic performance insight by coupling together multiple simulations. With multiphysics cosimulation, engineers can more realistically model the interaction of products with their environment, such as the vehicle behaviour in crosswinds or the motion of a propeller in tidal water.
Hexagon’s solutions for multiphysics cosimulation enable everything from acoustic simulation to multibody dynamics, CFD to structural analysis, and explicit crash dynamics to be coupled, giving greater insights in design for better overall performance.
We’re climbing the automation curve
Our transition to Intelligent automation is accelerating. Ultimately, our innovations will give rise to new technologies and applications - many of which we’ve yet to imagine. Today, every Hexagon solution is mapped and tagged according to its level of automation, so customers can clearly track our progress towards the freedom of autonomy.
Human performs all tasks, no data being used
Human is in charge of performing tasks but certain functions are automated to simplify control
Some tasks are automated so that operation can be autonomous for short periods (or within specific circumstances)
Autonomous operation is possible within certain bounds, but human intervention may be necessary at short notice
Designed to complete required tasks autonomously, but may require human intervention if circumstances change beyond specific bounds
Control tasks automated under all conditions, but human may request to take over; can complete all expected tasks without human intervention
