LMS Imagine.Lab Amesim
With LMS Amesim, engineers can predict a new design's performance early-on in the development cycle and assess viability of new technologies and solutions.
With over 5'000 pre-validated, fully parametric, physical component models (pumps, valves, heat exchangers, tubes, engines, electric motors, mechanics, gears, etc..), already available to the user inside the software, LMS Amesim enables quick creation of a "model-based" sketch, representing virtually any complex, multi-physical product (component or system).
How it works:
1. Sketch the System
Choose, drag and drop the physical component models available inside the software, and connect them to create your system.
With over 5'000 pre-validated, fully parametric, physical component models from any physical domain (pumps, valves, heat exchangers, tubes, engines, electric motors, mechanics, gears, etc..), already available to the user inside the software, LMS Amesim enables quick creation of a "model-based" sketch.
Parametrize the components inside your sketch, to adapt them to the actual sizing of the real, physical system/component you’re analyzing.
Models inside LMS Amesim, vary in terms of detail and parameters that have to be provided, according to the information available and the stage of development in which the product is, the user can choose simplified/basic models or fully-geometrical detailed models.
3. Simulate and Analyze
Simulate transient working conditions, the trends of: pressure, temperature, voltage, force, acceleration, speed, flow-rate, etc.
Launch linear analyses, to detect undesired vibrational phenomena due to system integration
Check on evolution of energy balance and power consumption over different working cycles
Analyze your data and system results with advanced plotting facilities, dashboard, animation, table editor, linear analysis, activity index and replay.
Physical Modeling Libraries
Access more than 4500 ready-to-use, validated physical components to build your product mock-up.
To create a system simulation model in LMS Imagine.Lab Amesim, you simply access one of the numerous LMS Amesim libraries of predefined and validated components from different physical domains.
HYDRAULICS. PNEUMATICS. THERMAL. MECHANICAL. ELECTROMECHANICAL. POWERTRAIN.
All simulation library components are completely validated to guarantee the accuracy and reliability of the simulation. By selecting the required validated component from the related library, you avoid creating your own complicated code. Not only does this save enormous amounts of time, it also allows teams to easily create complex system models covering multiple domains. Rather than spending time building a functional model, engineers can focus on design critical tasks such as optimizing the design for best-in-class product behavior early in the process.
Automotive and Ground Vehicles
LMS Imagine.Lab offers dedicated solutions and model libraries to support automotive and ground vehicles manufacturers and suppliers in designing robust, reliable and environmentally friendly systems. These automotive solutions also assess the global vehicle dynamic performance in terms of fuel economy, drivability and safety at the early design stages.
LMS Imagine.Lab Mechanical Industries solutions are dedicated to complex mechatronic systems design such as hydraulic and pneumatic actuated systems, systems dealing with thermal exchanges, phase-change or gas mixtures, as well as electrical systems.
Growing complexity in the design and control and strong dynamics, mean engineers require more advanced CAE solutions to perform integrated system level transient simulations. Energy efficiency is an important issue, that manufacturing companies are working on. LMS Imagine.Lab Amesim has the features and the integrated tools to answer the industries’ needs at this critical time.
Aerospace and Defence
The LMS Imagine.Lab solutions for aerospace systems enable you to ensure a safer and more reliable design of physical systems while shortening the time-to-market by empowering a real integration of physical systems with their controls. Providing a market-leading, multi-domain simulation environment, the aerospace solutions offer an open approach to mechatronic system simulation – from functional requirements to detailed design.
The LMS Imagine.Lab solutions for marine applications, help to increase innovation, design, engineer and build better and more affordable ships. The marine industry has to face huge environmental challenges, achieve CO2 and NOx 50% reductions by 2050. To achieve such results, the development of "fuel-efficient" traditional powertrains, or hybrid or full-electric powertrains is critical.
LMS Amesim allows engineers to predict dynamic performance of systems (like powertrain), their efficiency, the best control strategies for the physical design, early-on in the development cycle, supporting the ship-building industry to face these challenges.
