Dassault Systemes Announces New Multiphysics Technology in Abaqus Release 6.10 from SIMULIA

Native Computational Fluid Dynamics Capability for Fluid-Structure Interaction, Plus More than 100 Customer-Driven Enhancements

VÉLIZY-VILLACOUBLAY, France & PROVIDENCE, R.I. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — May 23, 2010Dassault Systèmes (DS) (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA) (Paris: DSY), a world leader in 3D and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, today announced the availability of Abaqus 6.10, the leading unified Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and multiphysics product suite for realistic simulation from SIMULIA.

In response to expanding industry demand for realistic simulation, the new release delivers on more than 100 customer-requested enhancements for modeling, performance, usability, visualization, multiphysics, and core mechanics. Designers, engineers, and researchers in all industries can now perform virtual tests that more accurately predict real-world behavior of materials and product designs, allowing them to improve product performance while reducing development time and cost.

Abaqus 6.10 introduces a new multiphysics capability for performing Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulation. This enables users to perform coupled physics simulations with Abaqus/Standard and Abaqus/Explicit, such as fluid-structure interaction between human tissue, a medical device, and fluid flow; thermal analysis of electronic systems undergoing convection cooling; or transient thermal analysis of engine exhaust systems.

“In order to simulate performance of engine components in a closer-to-reality environment, we are pleased that Abaqus 6.10 provides the Computational Fluid Dynamic capabilities for fluid-structure interaction which will enable us to perform accurate fluid and solid co-simulations,” said Dr. Fred Yang, technical leader of bearing analysis from Federal-Mogul Powertrain Sealing and Bearings Group USA. “The new solution certainly gives us significant enhancements to explore multiphysics interaction in our designs and optimize our products to reduce engine power loss and lower overall material costs.”

The release also reinforces SIMULIA’s commitment to providing an open multiphysics platform through improvements to its direct co-simulation coupling interface. This capability allows SIMULIA partners and customers to couple their applications directly with Abaqus for best-in-class multiphysics simulation.

With this release, SIMULIA also extends its leadership in the simulation software industry by delivering innovative technology for realistic fracture and failure analysis. Abaqus 6.10 features enhancements to its extended finite element method (XFEM) that improves the process for modeling fracture of composite materials. It also provides dramatic performance improvements for parallel processing of simulations that use XFEM, or the implicit dynamic procedure, allowing more simulations to be performed in less time.

“It is important to use the best technologies and methods available to assess the safety of nuclear power plant components," stated Dipl.-Ing. Axel Schulz, TÜV Nord. "The XFEM capabilities in Abaqus 6.10 will make it easier to perform virtual safety evaluations of nuclear power plant piping systems and pressure vessels. With this new release, realistic simulation of crack propagation based on both the cohesive segments method and linear elastic fracture mechanics is now feasible, while using the implicit dynamic procedure for improved stability.”

“Responding to our customers’ requests for new and improved capabilities is the key to our strategy of providing the most robust realistic simulation solutions possible while ensuring a high level of customer satisfaction,” stated Steve Crowley, director of product management, SIMULIA, Dassault Systèmes. “With Abaqus 6.10, we delivered more than one hundred customer requested enhancements including a unique solution to quickly generate mid-surfaces of thin parts in Abaqus/CAE. This release continues our commitment to enhancing our core mechanics and developing new and industry-leading multiphysics technology that helps our customers become more productive and efficient in evaluating and improving product performance.”

Abaqus 6.10 will be featured at the 2010 SIMULIA Customer Conference (SCC), May 24-27, in Providence, Rhode Island. Microsoft and CD-adapco are the premier sponsors of the SCC, which will host more than 400 attendees from world-leading manufacturing companies.
