Structural Engineer

Built on industry-leading Abaqus technology, 3DEXPERIENCE Works Simulation gives novices and experts alike the power to perform complex linear and non-linear analyses to validate product designs and make better-informed product decisions faster.


  • Structural Designer: an intuitive and guided simulation solution for designers who need to assess product performance under linear static, thermal and frequency conditions.


  • Structural Engineer: a role for design engineers providing linear static, thermal and frequency analysis solution with solid, shell and beam meshing to assess product performance.


  • Structural Performance Engineer: a role for design engineers to assess the product performance under linear and nonlinear static, thermal, frequency, thermal-stress, linear dynamic and quasi-static conditions.


  • Structural Mechanics Engineer: a role for design engineers and simulation experts to solve, in addition to what Structural Performance Engineer solves, nonlinear dynamic high-speed events, material calibration and geometry simplification.

Fluid Dynamics Engineer

Perform routine fluid flow and conjugate heat transfer calculations to guide design improvements, while exploring innovation design concepts.

Key Capabilities

There are two key components to Fluid Dynamics Engineer which capture the CFD work flow processes: Fluid Model Creation and Fluid Scenario creation.

  • Fluid Model Creation allows the user to easily build high-fidelity meshes for fluid flow calculations, which accurately capture boundary layers and automatically extract the fluid domain, thus reducing the need for most manual preparation.
  • Fluid Scenario Creation allows the user to define the fluid properties and the physics/boundary conditions that define the simulation scenario.

Electromagnetic Engineer
