Design and engineering solutions for buildings

Multiphysics simulation provides a solution to many challenges in the buildings sector. For example, optimising building HVAC system design and minimising heat losses with computational fluid dynamics (CFD) not only makes economic sense, but also creates a more sustainable world. Analysing the impact of elevator noise on apartments or offices provides a more comfortable living or working environment.

Design and engineering solutions for facilities

Multiphysics simulation is widely applied in various industrial facilities throughout the world to improve the design and enhance productivity.

Tools like multibody dynamics (MBD) software are constantly utilised to optimise the processing speed of machinery systems and enhance the throughput of the production line by up to 30% or more. Finite element analysis (FEA) is also used to ensure the structural integrity of the refinery, as another example.
