Simulations

When you execute an FEA model, this creates a simulation study. A simulation study consists of one or more simulations, where a simulation costs core-hours and generates results. A simulation study is associated with a specific design version of a project.

The execution of a parametric model creates multiple simulations in a single simulation study. A parametric model is a model that includes parameters, where a parameter is an aspect of your model that can be varied. OnScale Solve allows the various simulations that make up a parametric simulation study to be run in parallel.

When you visit the Simulations page of the dashboard, you’ll see a list of simulation studies that you have run in the last six months, whether completed or in progress.

Run a simulation

Simulations are run from the Modeler. To run a simulation, you must first open a project.

Open a simulation study

To open a simulation study, select it in the list. You’ll be taken to the simulation study details page.

On desktops and laptops, you can quickly jump to the project, to the Modeler, or to the results from the Simulations page, as described below.

On mobiles and tablets, you must first open the simulation study before you can access the project, the Modeler, or the results.

Open a project

To open the project for which a simulation study was run, locate your simulation study in list and click then select Open Project . This will take you to the project details page.

Open the Modeler

To open the design version for which a simulation study was run, locate your simulation study in list and click then select Open Modeler . This will take you to the Modeler.

Open results

To open the results of a simulation study, locate your simulation study in list and click then select Open Results . This will take you to the Results tab of the Modeler.

Filter simulation studies

You can apply different filters for the following:

  • Owner
  • Project
  • Status

Apply a different filter

  1. Select .
  2. Select a checkbox.
