1D System Simulation Overview
Learn how Activate serves as Altair’s open integration platform for multi-disciplinary system simulation involving mechanical dynamics, controls, hydraulics, thermal effects, electronics, electromagnetics, and more. 1D diagrams can be built using either a signal-based approach or a physical modeling approach based on the Modelica and SPICE standards or both. Hybrid simulations can involve continuous time and discrete events. Models can be linearized for analysis in the frequency domain. Mixed models combining 1D+3D can be constructed and simulated by using the Functional Mockup Interface (FMI) standard. All tools are built-in; no extra-cost add-ons are required.
Leverage the Power of Simulation-Driven Design
In order to stay competitive while pushing the envelope on innovation, simulation must drive the entire design process from the early concept design phase all the way to production. Leveraging robust simulation—including motion analysis, finite element analysis, and manufacturing feasibility analysis—early and often has become a necessary driver to innovation and is helping numerous industry-leading companies to meet quality, cost, and time-to-market targets.
Model-Based Development with Altair
Today, most products are a combination of mechanical, electrical/electronic, and controls/embedded software. In order to manage product complexity and ensure innovation, organizations turn to a model-based development approach for concept studies, control design, multi-domain system simulation and optimization.
Altair recently released a unified solution (solidThinking Compose, Activate and Embed) for math and system modeling. Watch this on-demand webinar to learn more.
