Dassault Systèmes Enlarges its Strategic Development Partnership with Airbus
VELIZY-VILLACOUBLAY, France --(Business Wire)--
Systèmes (Paris:DSY) (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), the
3DEXPERIENCE Company, world leader in 3D design software, 3D Digital
Mock Up and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, today
announced a partnership with Airbus to expand the use of Dassault
Systèmes' 3DEXPERIENCE platform's realistic simulation applications
(SIMULIA). This will accelerate the structural analysis and virtual
testing of their next generation aircraft, starting with the A350-900.
Airbus' ADVANS program (Accelerated Development for Vulnerability and
Nonlinear System) consists of innovative simulation methods to apply the
advanced nonlinear dynamic analysis capabilities of SIMULIA Abaqus to
predict, with a high level of confidence, the real-world strength and
performance of its aircraft structures. Accurate, nonlinear analysis,
done earlier in the design phase and prior to performing costly physical
tests, results in a highe quality design, faster, and at a lower cost.
Airbus designers and engineers will create very large simulation models,
leveraging their aircraft models designed in the CATIA application.
Then, by using high-performance computing clusters, they will be able to
perform full-scale, nonlinear structural simulations with SIMULIA Abaqus
"With this project, we are pushing the boundaries of high-performance
computing and our physics-based simulation applications to validate
full-scale aircraft designs overnight," said Monica Menghini, Executive
Vice President, Industry and Marketing, Dassault Systèmes (News - Alert). "The
3DEXPERIENCE platform allows users to experience the accurate physical
performance of their aircraft design much sooner and well before
committing to physical tests. This accelerates their ability to make
highly-informed, mission-critical design and engineering decisions."
The Airbus' ADVANS program represents a major milestone in the
long-standing relationship between Airbus and Dassault Systèmes. The
SIMULIA application, part of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, enables
simulation users to move away from approximate, linear analysis to more
accurate, nonlinear simulation technologies. This allows a deeper
understanding of realistic structural performance earlier in the design
