LMS, a Siemens PLM Software division, announced the latest release of its LMS 3D solutions, LMS Virtual.Lab Rev 12 and SAMCEF Rev 15.
"The current releases are another testimony to our commitment to realistic 3D simulation solutions. They are easier-to-use, feature faster performance, and incorporate several innovative solutions for non-linear analysis of acoustics and mechanisms, including composite materials. The software introduces several dedicated solutions for the automotive, aerospace and wind energy industry as well," said Nick Tzannetakis, vice president of LMS 3D Simulation Product Architecture. "As a whole, the LMS 3D simulation solutions are an excellent way to handle the ever-increasing complexity of products today. It is an extremely exciting time for the world of simulation."
The LMS Virtual.Lab Motion Real-Time Solver for full-vehicle driving dynamics complemented by the LMS Imagine.Lab AMESim Real-Time Solver or subsystem modeling lets users handle complex real-time 3D-1D models, such as those used in hardware-in-the-loop (HiL) applications and realistic driving simulators.
The new frequency-adaptive FEMAO solver improves calculation speeds for acoustic simulation for low- to high-frequency applications like pass-by noise and encapsulation design. A complete vehicle full-frequency pass-by-noise simulation can now be achieved in hours rather than days, the company says.
The latest SAMCEF Rev 15 release contains more technology to solve large-scale finite element models, including massive models with millions of degrees of freedom, and a complete flexible non-linear analysis solution including massive parallel solving and enhanced post-processing features. SAMCEF Wind Turbines Rev 15 specifically incorporates reference nodes for better comprehensive moving frame analysis for wind turbine applications, as well as an offshore simulation capability that includes wave loading influence on the overall wind turbine performance.
