OOFELIE::Multiphysics link to Simcenter 3D

The OOFELIE::Multiphysics Solver can be used from Simcenter 3D, the simulation environment of SIEMENS. This integrated solution provides  strongly coupled multidisciplinary analysis of a broad range of transducers, MEMS, microsystems and optical devices products in the aeronautics, space, defense, automotive, shipbuilding, and consumer electronics markets

Presentation of the link

The OOFELIE::Multiphysics link to NX permits Simcenter 3D users, directly in their familiar Simcenter 3D environment to:

  • Create OOFELIE::Multiphysics input files
  • Launch the OOFELIE::Multiphysics solver
  • Post-process OOFELIE::Multiphysics results

OOFELIE::Multiphysics Solver features are thus available on models designed in Simcenter 3D.

On the picture on the left, an example showing a piezoelectric model (APA) defined and post-processed in the Simcenter 3D environment. Here one can observe:
  • Material orientation (identified by color code)
  • Electric potential distribution
  • Mechanical deformations
  • Mechanical stresses distribution
