MAGNETICS, integrated in NX / Simcenter, well known as NX Magnetics, is a comprehensive FEM software package to simulate and optimize electromagnetic devices. It is perfectly integrated in the Siemens NX / Simcenter™ software system and used by industry and science. Development, support and distribution is achieved by Dr. Binde Ingenieure GmbH, solution partner of Siemens Industry Software GmbH. 


Industrial Software, deep Integration

MAGNETICS for NX/Simcenter allows the designer and analyst to use Siemens' Simcenter Pre/Post environment, the same software he maybe already uses for structural-, flow-, thermal-, or motion analysis as well as for CAD/CAM/PDM. Therefore many advantages result.

Material libraries, meshing techniques, CAD geometry preparation, selection techniques, assembly methods, all this is perfectly familiar to users of the NX/Simcenter system. But even for newcomers of NX/Simcenter these things are not hard to learn.

Also this allows easily coupling the solvers and using output from one as input for another one.

Of course similar to all other NX/Simcenter data the MAGNETICS data can be stored in the Teamcenter database.

The following article demonstrates the usage of NX Magnetics with HEEDS. The presentation highlights how modern simulation process automation and design space exploration can be used in a managed environment to consistently deliver high performance, low-cost designs.


High End Applications

A well prepared set of solution sequences contains the full range of electromagnetic application cases: Magnetostatics, Magnetodynamics, Electrostatics, Electrodynamics, DC Conduction as well as Full Wave High Frequency solutions.

The software allows you to solve a broad range of applications. Nevertheless even very special problems can be solved because of the open architecture. All this can be done in 2D or 3D and it allows solving all the range

  • from 1D to 3D models,
  • from linear to nonlinear problems,
  • from static to dynamic problems,
  • from single physical models to coupled ones.

Science Interface

Science to Industry

A unique programing language for FEM allows the advanced user to control and develop his own physical formulations, solution processes and postprocessing formulas. New results from science can be integrated in user defined physical formulations.

The solver architecture uses an extended version of the well known numerical library GetDP (General Environment for the Treatment of Discrete Problems). This software contains code developed by Christophe Geuzaine and Patrick Dular, University of Liege.
