As a global technology leader in computer-aided engineering (CAE) simulation software and services, our traditional business partner MSC Software Corporation, announced the debut release of the MSC CoSim engine that has been developed in order to provide a co-simulation interface for the direct coupling of different solvers/disciplines within a multiphysics framework enabling engineers to set up co-simulation models between Adams (MBD), Marc (FEA) and scFLOW (CFD) and it covers a wide range of industrial scale applications including washing machine drum vibration to fuel tank sloshing for FSI and MBD; moving diaphragm valves to non-standard fans and pumps; dynamic windshield wiper blades to hydraulic actuators; and non-linear rubber door seals to vehicle bushes. At most companies, CAE is performed as an isolated activity within a single functional team or engineering discipline. The performance, safety, and reliability of their products, however, is greatly influenced by the interactions between these disciplines. Co-simulation helps to avoid inaccurate assumptions, and therefore leads to a better correlation between CAE simulation and physical testing, so engineers gain a richer insight into the performance of the actual product without over-design. Co-simulation can provide a higher level of simulation accuracy with realistic engineering analysis demands inside real world engineering design timescales.
