COSMOS/Edge offers comprehensive design analysis to users of Unigraphics Solutions' Solid Edge, in a native Windows, multi-document environment powered by the Parasolid modeling kernel.

Whether you're an engineer working in the mechanical, electromechanical, aerospace, transportation, power, automotive, medical or construction industry, COSMOS/Edge can help to:

  • Shorten development time

  • Reduce testing costs

  • Improve product quality

  • Increase profitability

  • Cut time to market

COSMOS/Edge introduces a new concept in analysis and design verification to the engineering community. Ease of use and an intuitive approach to analyzing complex parts and Assemblies quickly and accurately set COSMOS/Edge apart from other design programs. An open architecture allows integration with third party analysis and complementary software, user customization, and VAR additions.

COSMOS/Edge is available in three different bundles - Basic, Intermediate and Advanced - to give you the analysis tools you need, without forcing you to pay extra for the ones you donít. For users with more specific engineering design needs, special add-ons are available.

Basic capabilities:

  • Static Analysis: Computation of stress, strain and displacement results. Possibility to calculate thermal stresses, with temperature map obtained from a transient or steady state thermal analysis, or defined on the model as a boundary condition. Stress stiffening effect can be taken into account . Contacts between assembly components are supported (linearized solution).

  • Frequency Analysis: calculation of natural frequencies and associated mode shapes. Stress stiffening effect can be taken into account.

  • Buckling analysis: calculation of buckling mode shapes and associated load factors. Stress stiffening effect can be taken into account.

  • Thermal Analysis: computation of heat transfer due to conduction, including with convection and radiation boundary condition. Transient and steady state are supported. Outputs include distribution of temperatures, temperature gradients and heat flux.

Intermediate and Advanced capabilities (requires SRAC's GEOSTAR):

  • Nonlinear Structural Analysis :For problems that exhibit geometrical, material and/or gap/contact nonlinearities, in static or dynamic environment. Applications include: limit load, post-buckling, plasticity, rubber-like materials, drop tests, etc.

  • Advanced Dynamic Analysis: Dynamic response calculation due to time dependent or frequency dependent loading. Analysis types include:

    • Modal-time history analysis

    • Steady-state harmonic analysis

    • Random vibration analysis

    • Response spectra generation and analysis.

  • Fatigue Analysis: Computation of partial and total fatigue usage factor. Capability to interface with the modules mentioned above.

  • Electromagnetic Analysis: Magnetostatic analysis of problems with current sources and permanent magnets. Electrostatic, current flow and transient electromagnetic analysis. B-H material curves and/or permanent magnet demagnetization curves can be taken into account.

  • Computational Fluid Analysis: Analysis of gases and liquids through a wide range of Reynolds numbers, for 2D, 3D and axysimetric models. Basic functionnalities include simulation of internal and external flows of incompressible, subsonic fluids, with conduction and convection heat transfer capabilities. Optional additional capabilities such as compressible gas flows including subsonic, transonic and supersonic regimes, transient analysis and much more are available. More information on the COSMOS/FlowPlus page.

  • High Frequency Electromagnetic Analysis: Suite of 2D and 3D high frequency electromagnetic field solvers, including a program for the analysis of resonant structures More information on the COSMOS/HFS Suite page.
