With each new major release of SimulationX, ESI Group says it strives to simplify and accelerate your workflow involving modeling, simulating and analyzing technical systems.
With the new SimulationX, there is a completely overhauled user interface with context-sensitive menus and a task-centered ribbon bar and increased performance for the computation of Functional Mock-up Units (FMUs).
New modules include the following:
- System Reliability Analysis: Include production tolerances, aging parameters, wear and faults with your model
- Bowden Cables: Design and analyze even complex Bowden cable layouts for highest precision
- Driving Maneuvers: Test a vehicle’s powertrain, brakes, chassis and control systems under driving conditions
There's an automated model validation with the Simulation Task Manager. The Simulation Task Manager introduced with SimulationX 3.9 now includes an automated model validation. In particular, users who develop their own libraries can now efficiently compare large amounts of results of calculated reference models automatically with the results of models calculated on the basis of another library/software version. The Simulation Task Manager checks whether the results of the models to be compared are within a specified tolerance band and outputs deviations per model and result variable.
There's also improved computation and handling of Functional Mock-up Units (FMUs). ESI ITI has been an active contributor to the Modelica Association Project “Functional Mock-up Interface (FMI)” and is significantly involved in the further development of the FMI standard. SimulationX 4.0 comes with various enhancements saving you time when handling FMUs and when computing system models containing FMUs, according to the company.
There are numerous other new features and modules. Find an extensive overview here.
