dassault 3dexpWith the acquisition of Madrid-based company Next Limit Dynamics Dassault Systèmes Expands Industry Solutions for Multiphysics simulation on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform and strengthens its market position in computational fluid dynamics (CFD). The software solutions from Next Limit Dynamics are used by analysts for accurate and meaningful simulation of highly dynamic fluid flows. Thus demanding CFD tasks can be faster than with traditional methods to solve. Customers include Airbus, AISIN AW, Caterpillar, Doosan, Ford, Google X, Honda, Mitsubishi, NASA, saffron Helicopter Engines and Toyota. 

"The simulation allows innovators to advance the development of materials, of additive manufacturing process, the Internet of experiences and other factors that contribute to the harmonization of product, nature and life," says Bernard Charlès, Vice Chairman & CEO, Dassault Systèmes. "Next Limit Dynamics is a young, dynamic company whose experienced research and development team and the future-oriented CFD method, integrated into the multiphysics, multiscale 3DEXPERIENCE platform will transform the process of innovation." 

The realistic simulation - from early conception to late validation - is a crucial step in order to create successful long-term customer experiences. The technology of Next Limit Dynamics is used to predict the performance of complex structures and improve, who are exposed to a fluid flow. These include aerodynamic flows behind motor vehicles, aerodynamic noise of aircraft landing gear or lubrication complex powertrains. This approach can help to improve the fuel consumption of a motor vehicle and to reduce its emissions to reduce the ambient noise of aircraft and to increase the efficiency of wind turbines for power generation. 

"For almost a decade we have our Lattice Boltzmann Simulation Technology XFlow developed to enhance the applicability of CFD, numerous industries and for demanding applications," said David Holman, General Manager, Next Limit Dynamics. "Today's products are becoming more sophisticated, and therefore also the technical tasks more complex. Our innovative approach eliminates the time-intensive preparation tasks that are required in conventional CFD solutions. This allows engineers to focus more on the evaluation and optimization of the design. As an integral part of Dassault Systèmes, our technology can better address this complexity and support the work of engineers who use the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. "  Read More
