Simulation Month

September is Simulation Month

simulation design

Welcome to Simulation Month!

We cover introductory design analysis concepts, to in-depth application demonstrations from our customers. Broadly, these Simulation focus areas are represented: structural, flow or fluid, plastics, material, and motion. Simulating your product designs allows us to optimize performance for the real world. We want you to have the best products on the market, and to cut down on physical prototypes and rework at the same time!

For beginners: we offer Introduction to Product Validation and Introduction to Simulation.

For Simulation users who want 101 training: we offer Quick Start Plastics Training, Quick Start Structural Professional Engineer Training, Fatigue Analysis, and Motion Analysis.

More advanced offerings include: Body Panel Seal With O-Ring Simulation; Fluid Dynamics of Intubation; Abaqus Solutions; Topology Optimization; and Simulation for Additive Manufacturing.

Target Your Specific Needs with CFD Analysis

SOLIDWORKS Flow example - air

Our Simulation Engineering Consulting team specializes in forms of CFD testing.

With our CFD analysis capabilities, we can simulate liquid and gas flow in real world conditions, run “what if” scenarios, and quickly analyze the effects of fluid flow, heat transfer, and related forces on immersed or surrounding components.

Fluids of interest for analysis range from air, water, liquid chemicals, and gases, to others such as plastic melts.

Our CFD Analysis can target your specific needs through a variety of techniques using SOLIDWORKS Simulation, SIMULIA, and/or Abaqus software. Our team of Simulation Design Engineers save time and can share a wide range of experience and apply it to your product design. Areas of expertise range from:

  • Radiation heat transfer analysis between different temperature surfaces. Need solar radiation calculated? Our experts can help. Need conduction and convection heat transfer? We're here to assist.
  • Internal flow analysis of liquids and gases through common elements such as valves, regulators, and ducts.
  • Rotating reference frame analysis for understanding complex rotational flows inside turbo machinery.

Advanced Validation Testing & Tools

GSC offers comprehensive and sophisticated Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to improve your products by:

Claw featuring simulation capabilities
  • Studying the performance of your designs for excessive deflections and stresses under dynamic loads.
  • Performing nonlinear analysis, including impact, on plastics, rubbers, polymers, and foam.
  • Conducting contact analysis coupled with nonlinear materials.
  • Evaluating the behavior of composite materials.
