Siemens Industry Software

The Walloon Establishment Unit of Siemens Industry Software NV called "Centre d’exploitation et de compétence Samtech", develops since 1986 the general-purpose Finite Element Analysis software Simcenter SamcefTM, including its version embedded in Simcenter NastranTM, and the customizable collaborative engineering platform Simcenter Aerostructure dedicated to the certification of Aircraft Structures.

Siemens Industry Software provides a complete suite of engineering 3D simulation software for loads computation, topology optimization, structural sizing, thermo-mechanical stress analysis of structural components and non-linear structural dynamics analysis of whole machines, made of both metallic and composite materials. Rotating machines is a specialty of Samcef simulation software like aircraft engines, gas turbines, steam turbines, open rotors, tilt-rotors, helicopter rotors, … Siemens Industry Software also delivers advanced simulation solutions for the modelling of space deployable and inflatable structures and finally for the simulation of manufacturing processes with the purpose of predicting structural parts distortion in additive and composite manufacturing.

The Samcef software technology has an unsurpassed reputation for its quality and reliability. It has been adopted by many major companies across all engineering disciplines as an integral part of their design process. It is an important technology contributor to the Siemens Industry 4.0 vision based on Digital Twins, from Product Design until Simulation in Service, going through all the steps of manufacturing.
