Simcenter Amesim capabilities


Electrical system simulation Simulate and integrate electrical and electromechanical systems from concept design to control validation. Simcenter Systems helps optimize the dynamic performance of mechatronic systems, analyze power consumption, and design and validate control laws for electrical devices for the automotive, aerospace, industrial machinery, marine and heavy equipment industries.

Fluid system simulation Optimize the dynamic behavior of hydraulic and pneumatic components while limiting physical prototyping to what's strictly necessary. With a wide choice of components, features and application-oriented tools, Simcenter Systems allows you to model fluid systems for a wide range of applications, such as mobile hydraulic actuation systems, powertrain systems or aircraft fuel and environmental control systems.


Comprehensive component libraries support occasional and expert users when modeling fluid systems, from functional to detailed models. The seamless integration between libraries enables the design of any fluid system and the coupling with controls and other related systems in a single platform.


Mechanical system simulation

Manage the increasing engineering complexity of integrated mechanical systems. Simcenter Systems offers state-of-the-art modeling techniques that allow multi-dimensional (1D, 2D and 3D) dynamic simulations. It enables you to study rigid or flexible bodies and complex non-linear frictions by analyzing low- or high-frequency phenomena and taking into account coupling between mechanical structures and electric or hydraulic motion.

Propulsion system simulation Address a great variety of architectures and technologies with the multiphysics system simulation approach. Powertrain electrification in automotive, reusable launch systems for the space industry, or the use of alternative fuels (LNG) for ships are examples of technology implementation that modeling capabilities of Simcenter can support. You will be able to design and assess the impact of the propulsion system on various metrics, such as onboard power generation or vehicle pollutant emissions, by performing a complete analysis of cross-system influences in a single platform.

Reduced-order model creation Simcenter supports the creation of reduced-order models (ROM) in an intuitive interface providing the best reduction techniques from machine learning, linear algebra and statistics. A ROM has a small memory footprint, is tool-agnostic and can be operated in real time allowing for usage as an executable digital twin in all phases of the product lifecycle – enabling better decisions and improved operational excellence.

System simulation model management The Simcenter system simulation client for git option helps all the actors of the system simulation community to work collaboratively, supplying the daily management of simulation assets, including branching, versioning and role-based access control. Using the client for git also allows you to keep track of dependencies, related content and all other data that is part of the model, so you have a precise representation of the system simulation domain. Deploy collaborative model development in the most efficient way with the help of optimized data transfers and search algorithms combined with an efficient and fully integrated user experience.

System simulation platform Simcenter Systems offers state-of-the-art, open and user-friendly multiphysics system simulation platforms to model, run and analyze complex systems and components. The powerful features, analysis and optimization tools are embedded in advanced and easy-to-use environments for highly efficient 1D multiphysics system simulation and robust design. It efficiently interfaces with many 1D and 3D computer-aided engineering (CAE) software solutions and helps you quickly derive and export models for standard real-time targets by providing a consistent and continuous model-in-the-loop (MiL), software-in-the-loop (SiL) and hardware-in-the-loop (HiL) capable framework.

System integration Simcenter Systems offers the integration of different simulation tools throughout the lifecycle of your system, from early design to the operation phase. This allows you to address the digital continuity challenge and increase the efficiency of your workflows and the collaboration between different departments. Simcenter Systems supports connections to a product lifecycle management (PLM) system and geometrical data, co-simulations between 1D and 3D CAE tools, design space exploration, model-based controls development and interactions among different systems using the Functional Mockup Interface (FMI).


Thermal system simulation Simcenter Systems helps maximize thermal performance for HVAC and cabin comfort, vehicle thermal management, environmental control systems or other thermal systems. Advanced post-processing features that graphically visualize energy flows in your system makes it highly effective to optimize energy efficiency and to study the integration of energy recovery systems and their impact on performance and energy consumption. You can use the software to represent the real operating environment of your system, including interactions with surroundings when designing and validating your temperature control strategies.
