Visual Environment

Visual-Environment, the single integrated environment for all your CAE needs

Visual-Environment is a single integrated user environment that caters to the engineering simulation needs across major industries. It includes a comprehensive modeling tool to generate quality meshes on complex geometries for various engineering domains ranging across, amongst other applications:

  • Crash and Passenger Safety
  • NVH
  • Welding & Assembly
  • Casting
  • Electromagnetics
  • CFD & Multiphysics

Visual-Environment's interactive post-processing module caters to the requirements of the CAE community through its multi-page / multi-plot environment.

In addition, Visual-Environment's software development toolkit (SDK), allows you to customize and extend this open architecture through process templates and macros.

Visual-Environment incorporates the finest engineering knowledge and best practices with a process-oriented approach suited to the needs of a shop-floor user or a software savvy user alike.

Together with VisualDSS, ESI's Decision Support System, CAE Managers and Engineers can reap the following benefits with Visual-Environment:

  • Simulate complete workflows for a variety of physics within a single integrated environment;
  • Reduce cost and time by eliminating tedious data exchange by relying on a single core computer model;
  • Boost individual productivity with task automation;
  • Shorten time per design iteration thanks to process automation;
  • Improve product quality through a framework that enables concurrent engineering;
  • Customize enterprise solutions with minimal effort.

Visual-Mesh, Visual-Viewer and Visual-Process Executive are common modules, usually available as a part of all the solutions in Visual-Environment. The software development toolkit, Visual-SDK, is available on demand.

There are four key components with Visual Environment:

  1. Visual-Mesh
  2. Visual-Viewer
  3. Visual-SDK
  4. Visual-Process Executive

In addition to supporting ESI solutions with a common graphical environment, Visual-Environment is open to 3rd party solvers. The supported solvers include:

  • Visual-Crash
  • Visual-Crash Dyna
  • Visual-Crash RAD
  • Visual-Safe
  • Visual-Safe MAD
  • Visual-Life NASTRAN
  • Visual-NVH & Interior
  • Visual-MEDYSA
  • Visual-Seal
  • Visual-Cast
  • Visual-Weld
  • Visual-CFD
  • Visual-CEM
  • Visual-SYSTUS
