Coupled or multi-physics simulation
Sometimes it is simply not enough to examine the physical properties of components in isolation. Wherever several physical phenomena are examined regarding their interaction with another, this is referred to as multi-physics simulation.
Findings established in such simulations often present a truer picture than separate studies. Multi-physics simulations play an increasingly important role in all stages of a product’s life cycle, from the analysis of new material properties, their mapping in virtual material models and parameters, through to production process simulation and calculation of product resistance under the effect of flow.
