ESI’s Virtual Performance Solution, a scalable simulation software for multi-domain virtual product testing, enables users to manage complex simulation scenarios while balancing functional needs.

Version 2010 of the Virtual Performance Solution provides a multi-stage capability, enabling multi-domain analysis with a single-core model.

This reduces complexity and eliminates the task of dealing with multiple solvers and workflow processes.

Eberhard Keim, CAE department manager at Edag Ingolstadt, said: ‘With Virtual Performance Solution, we use one single-core model of a vehicle bonnet to perform stiffness analysis and pedestrian protection analysis.

‘Two simulation models for different load cases are no longer needed.

‘Using a single-core model allows us to perform faster design changes.

‘Furthermore, the calculation with the Implicit module is two times faster and uses less memory than what we used before,’ added Keim.

Version 2010 spans crash, impact and occupant safety analysis, motion and dynamics, strength and thermal analysis and noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) analysis, all within a single package.

NVH is new in Version 2010, allowing engineers to go beyond crash and safety analysis and to solve linear harmonics, transient structural and acoustic problems in parallel.

This new feature enables engineers to obtain more accurate results, to clearly measure the structure’s deformation, as required by EuroNCAP, and to cover a wider range of applications.

CAE engineers can benefit more directly from virtual prototyping and virtual testing.

Peter Ullrich, Virtual Performance Solution product manager at ESI, said: ‘Virtual Performance Solution allows you to use a single compute model for multi-domain applications.

‘Running both explicit and implicit solution schemes on a standard crash simulation hardware platform, you can significantly reduce not only the turnaround time but also IT costs,’ he added.

ESI is a world-leading supplier and pioneer of digital simulation software
for prototyping and manufacturing processes that take into account the
physics of materials.

ESI has developed an extensive suite of coherent, industry-oriented
applications to realistically simulate a product’s behavior during testing,
to fine-tune manufacturing processes in accordance with desired product
performance, and to evaluate the environment’s impact on product
performance.

ESI’s products represent a unique collaborative and open environment for
Simulation-Based Design, enabling virtual prototypes to be improved in a
continuous and collaborative manner while eliminating the need for physical
prototypes during product development.

A scalable Simulation-Based Design solution to accelerate innovation

ESI’s End-to-End Virtual Prototyping solutions, including software and
services, allow to manage with remarkable efficiency the virtual prototyping
of industrial products from creation through to end development, to limit
its complexity and risks, resulting in the successful validation of real
prototypes “to get it right at the right time”.

The company employs over 750 high-level specialists worldwide covering more
than 30 countries.

ESI Group is listed in compartment C of NYSE Euronext Paris.
