Dassault Systemes has announced the release of Isight 4.5, the simulation process automation and design optimisation software from its Simulia brand.

The company has also released the Simulia Execution Engine (formerly Fiper) 4.5 for executing Isight simulation process flows across computing resources.

Isight provides designers, engineers and researchers with an open system for integrating design and simulation models, created with various CAD, CAE and other software applications, to automate the execution of hundreds or even thousands of simulations.

It allows designers to save time and improve designs by optimising against performance or cost variables through statistical methods such as ‘design of experiments’ or ‘design for six sigma’.

Several Simulia customers presented their use of Isight at the 2010 Simulia Customer Conference (SCC).

For example, engineers from Baker Hughes, an oilfield services company, shared its experience in using Isight with Abaqus to optimise downhole expandable tubulars.

‘Historically, at least two months of analysis had been required to ascertain an acceptable geometry,’ said Jeff Williams, project engineer, Baker Hughes.

‘With Isight, the development period was reduced to two days,’ he added.

Isight 4.5 provides: scalable parallel algorithms for leveraging multicore computing resources; enhanced approximation and reliability methods to evaluate product performance across a range of real-world operating variables; improvements to multi-objective optimisation; and data mining that provides deeper insight into performance attribute tradeoffs.

Users of Simulia’s Abaqus Unified FEA will benefit from a licensing policy that reduces the cost for using Simulia’s Abaqus Unified FEA in automated design studies with Isight.

Using the combination of these products allows customers to reduce Abaqus token usage by as much as 60 per cent.
