With the introduction of version 2310, solar engineers can perform accurate analysis on solar photovoltaic units, including energy production and revenue forecasting, thanks to the improvements introduced in the solar panel. These improvements include a simple definition of model parameters that can be found in the datasheet information. Additionally, engineers can transform photovoltaic cell units into solar panels and arrays effortlessly.

Solar panel improvements


Simcenter Amesim now offers a new reversible solid oxide fuel cell structure that includes reformers and a basic demonstrator. This framework is a comprehensive solution to address the challenges faced by the energy sector in terms of decarbonization. Predictive models embedded in the framework allow engineers to evaluate the performance of reversible solid oxide cells under various pressures, temperatures and species concentrations, including startup and shutdown sequences. With the new components, engineers can build Power-to-X systems with infinite possibilities. They can size components, optimize architecture, and define control strategies that take into account variability in green energy supply, costs, and CO2 emissions.

Automotive and transport


An important challenge for vehicle engineers is understanding how vehicle designs will perform in real-world scenarios, whether on or off-road. The Simcenter Amesim Track Import tool introduces a new 3D road generator; Powered by the HERE map database, it allows the generation of 3D roads from GPS data shared around the world for simulation with different driving profiles.

Simcenter Amesim 's new visual terrain model editor provides a tool for designing proving ground models for cars and off-road vehicles. This allows chassis design engineers to easily create various types of proving grounds, including obstacles of different shapes, heights and lengths. Additionally, the tool can run batch simulations to increase the value and ease of testing.

Soil model visual editor


The new Electric Vehicle database in Simcenter System Analyst is beneficial for CAE methodology groups who want to understand how the software works and what information it provides. The database contains several electric vehicle configurations that can be used for testing and using Simcenter System Analyst in a practical and conventional application. This means the user can simulate an existing electric vehicle with realistic parameter values, query the vehicle configuration with a single click, compare simulation results with publicly available information, and perform what-if scenarios by switching components between vehicles, changing driving scenarios. or adjusting parameter values.

Aerospace and defense


Simcenter Amesim 2310 offers turbine and burner pre-design applications that help gas turbine and engine performance engineers extract the information they need before CAD models are available. This allows engineers to evaluate design weight penalties, generate critical data, and understand engine transient behavior. These applications also provide clear views of turbine and burner layouts, making the design process more accessible and efficient.

Turbine and Burner Pre-Design Applications


Although the first attempts to send probes to MARS date back to the 1970s, the last decade has seen an increase in successful missions that have sent probes, rovers and even helicopters to the soil of Mars. To support what we might call a race to MARS, we have implemented in Simcenter Amesim 2310 a pre-calibrated Martian atmosphere that allows flight dynamics engineers to accurately evaluate the vehicle's flight performance on MARS. More specifically, engineers can precisely calibrate their guidance, navigation and control systems and find optimal trade-offs.

User-defined environment definition


Simcenter Amesim 2310 features CAD import sketch generation for tube handling filling . Engineers can now generate a ready-to-use thermofluid model directly from the CAD geometry of a fuel system. This reduces manual steps and model building time, allowing engineers to focus on analysis and explore a broader design space. The capability is aimed at the aerospace industry, but can be used in other industries such as automotive, marine and energy.

Fluid and thermal applications


The new sketch animation extension in Simcenter Amesim 2310 offers direct temperature analysis, making it perfect for thermal teams sizing or integrating heat exchangers. In seconds, you can visually monitor the temperature of all constituents of your heat exchangers at all times.

Sketch animation


In real-life two-phase systems, it is sometimes possible for the liquid and vapor phases to flow at different speeds. This effect is not captured by a homogeneous model, but may have an impact on system performance.


In Simcenter Amesim 2310 we have introduced new slip ratio correlations that offer the possibility of capturing velocity differences between the liquid and vapor phases. Using these new correlations along with state-of-the-art heat exchange modeling, engineers can achieve predictability in estimating load and pressure drops for their two-phase systems.

Two-phase flow drift flow


For those in the energy and process sectors, a new tube aging feature has been introduced in Simcenter Flomaster 2310 to understand solid material deposition changes in diameter, roughness and heat transfer behavior over time; helping you identify when maintenance and cleaning are needed to reduce operating costs.

Pipe aging


The latest Simcenter Flomaster update has improved the application of incompressible flow balancing by introducing additional components such as tubes and constant height reservoir for more options when balancing a system. Flow rate can now be maintained and a filter has been added to exclude pipes from view to help focus on critical components. A compressible flow balancing application was also introduced. These applications provide an automated workflow to balance systems more efficiently, allowing easy transition from flow balancing simulation to static or dynamic simulation.

Platform improvements that increase productivity


Making CAD software and system simulation applications more integrated is critical to an efficient digital thread, and the new model update in Simcenter Amesim 2310 provides the ability to apply design changes from the new 3D CAD part revision to a model existing system, improving this process.

CAD model update


The latest FMI enhancements in Simcenter Amesim 2310 provide strong and reliable startup capabilities and also offer a closer connection with machine learning applications. As a result, both experienced and novice users can now make the most of their Simcenter Amesim models with greater ease.

Improvements to the IMF


This new release also brings improvements to Teamcenter connectivity in Simcenter Amesim 2310 and Simcenter Flomaster 2310. This feature allows requirements management in Teamcenter to be linked to simulation models for easy verification of system requirements.

Teamcenter Connectivity


The new Merge with Conflicts feature in Simcenter Client for Git is ideal for users who work with branches and want to merge modifications from another branch. It provides the ability to resolve merge conflicts manually, making it easier to perform merges for most collection types with or without conflicts.

Another improvement in the Simcenter Client for Git is what we call Delete collection from server . This new feature allows server administrators to delete unused collections from the server. This way, collections that are unused or that were uploaded by mistake can be removed by users with appropriate permissions. Collections can only be deleted when they are not associated with any other collection. This means that you cannot delete a collection required by other collections.
