From smart product design to smarter manufacturing, our linear, non-linear and advanced non-linear finite element analysis (FEA) solutions simulate structures from components to full systems in an open environment by leveraging the latest paradigms of data and workflow management, cloud computing and AI.


Leading structural analysis software

Structural analysis software enables the creation of reliable and accurate digital twins of products and machines so engineers can design and invent next-generation devices. With physics-based engineering data under real-world operating conditions, engineers can dream of building greener planes and electric vehicles to sustain the planet, medical devices to save and improve human lives and next-generation spacecraft to allow exploration of space.

FEA technology provides accurate simulation-based decision support and best practices selection for products. It gives engineers confidence that the final design will meet requirements before the physical product is built.

Hexagon’s structural analysis simulation tools leverage artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), high-performance computing (HPC), cloud and simulation processes and data management (SPDM) to address a variety of smart manufacturing challenges across automotive, aerospace, defence, renewable energy and life sciences.
