Addressing the challenges of lowering CO2 emissions and countering climate change requires a drastic transformation of the aviation industry. New propulsion systems, innovative designs and a more integrated engineering approach are some solutions envisioned for more sustainable air transportation.
Meanwhile, aircraft integrators face complex integration challenges to confirm that performance targets are met and certify design airworthiness. They need to streamline aircraft integration and avoid costly program delays. The introduction of innovative structural designs and ever more complex systems leads to performance uncertainties against certification requirements. Integrators need to provide evidence of the design's airworthiness.
By combining virtual and physical testing, Simcenter offers a unique platform to predict and confirm the aircraft's behavior during flight operation. The solution integrates scalable, reliable, precise data acquisition hardware and dedicated, user-friendly software for test-based engineering. It is backed up by years of testing and engineering experience, designed to answer modern aircraft integration challenges.
The Simcenter™ portfolio by Siemens Digital Industries Software, offers a comprehensive set of scalable and collaborative applications for dynamic model-based performance engineering, from concept design to certification, all on one platform and traceable. This will enable consistent and accurate behavioral verification and validation throughout the design cycle.
Simcenter uniquely integrates the full breadth of engineering solutions, including system simulation, 3D CAE and CFD, and physical testing, with design exploration and analytics, workflow automation and simulation process and data management. Simcenter is an integral part of Xcelerator™, a broad integrated portfolio of MCAD, PLM, and EDA solutions and services from Siemens Digital Industries Software.
