Opera-3d 16 electromagnetics and multiphysics design software enables design engineers to harness the parallel processing capabilities of multi-core processors, reducing computational time. Designed for use on standard PCs, features include use of an extremely accurate method to represent coils, modeling complex devices with up to several hundred coils. Electromagnetic, thermal and stress analysis simulations operate seamlessly, enabling results from one type of simulation to automatically pass to other simulation types. Users can set up a chain of analyses of the same model and solve them sequentially. Shape deformation caused by forces acting on a model can be employed across different types of simulation, and the deformed mesh from stress analysis can be nominated for use in subsequent electromagnetic or thermal analyses.
