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.

Looking for simulation studies run by other members in your team? Visit the Team page.

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, hover over the simulation study in the list so that shows. Select this to be taken to the project details page.

Open the Modeler

To open the design version for which a simulation study was run, hover over the simulation study in the list so that shows. Select this to be taken to the Modeler.

Open results

To open the results of a simulation study, hover over the simulation study in the list so that shows. Select this to be taken to the Results tab of the Modeler.

Filter simulation studies

By default only simulation studies from the last six months are shown. You can remove this filter to show all simulation studies.

You can also apply a different filter to only show more recent simulation studies.

Apply a different filter

  1. Select .
  2. Select a checkbox (Last Hour, Today, Last week, or Last Month).

Remove a filter

Select in the gray box for the filter, or else select Clear Filters.
