Siemens has provided the Simcenter Amesim system simulation software with various updates. The new version of Simcenter Amesim should accelerate the creation of a digital twin thanks to greater ease of use and regulated access to system simulation.

The new opportunities in Simcenter Amesim focus on four main areas. These include vehicle electrification, system performance engineering of air vehicles, controls engineering and the efficiency of system simulation and ease of use.

Updates

For example, the new version has extended the support and integration of Modelica with other Simcenter solutions, allowing the simulation software to help users create a unique toolchain for the development cycle. There is also a new Modelica compiler and it is possible to convert hydraulic models into thermo-hydraulic variants with one click, thus increasing the efficiency of the system simulation.

Updates also help to address vehicle electrification by importing Simcenter Motorsolve and Simcenter Battery Design Studio models. Frontloading has become possible for the engineering of aerospace performance systems, thanks to upgraded capabilities to import CAD models for fuel systems and improved post-processing apps for gas turbines.

Siemens Digital Industries Software has also made sure that challenges in building ships are met. The company did this by using validated components and ready-to-use templates of models for marine applications. Finally, the engineering possibilities for controls have been streamlined. Siemens Digital Industries Software used a new tool for PID controller calibration and real-time components for thermal and valvetrain systems.

Six months

Siemens Digital Industries Software claims that this new version also improves the delivery model of Simcenter Amesim. From now on, the software will have access to new functions every six months. According to Siemens Digital Industries Software, the emphasis remains on technical quality.
