Altair SimSolid, game-changing simulation technology for designers, design engineers, and simulation analysts.

SimSolid is structural analysis software developed specifically for upfront assessment. It eliminates geometry simplification and meshing, the two most time consuming and expertise extensive tasks done in traditional FEA.

Moreover, SimSolid can analyze complex parts and large assemblies not practical with traditional FEA and do it efficiently on a desktop class computer. Both fast and accurate, SimSolid controls solution accuracy using a unique multi-pass adaptive analysis.


Executives and Technologists Discuss SimSolid Acquisition
Why SimSolid
Eliminate Geometry Simplification and Meshing
SimSolid’s unique technology completely eliminates geometry simplification and meshing, the two most time consuming, expertise extensive and error prone tasks done in traditional FEA. With SimSolid, model preparation is done in minutes.
Analyze Complex Parts and Large Assemblies
SimSolid has been designed to analyze complex parts and large assemblies not practical with traditional FEA. SimSolid is tolerant of imprecise geometry. Its assembly connections are industry best at handling ragged contact surfaces with both gaps and overlapping geometry.
Get Results in Seconds to Minutes
SimSolid is fast, real fast. Solution times are typically measured in second to minutes on a standard PC. With SimSolid, multiple design scenarios can be quickly analyzed and compared. And, accuracy can be specified on an individual part level allowing a rapid drill down to any level of detail that is required.
