About

PITHIA

PITHIA fills the gap among existing software packages and reinforces the simulation toolbox of engineers and scientists.

The Boundary Element Method (BEM) is ideal for providing accurate and reliable solutions to large-scale problems dealing with infinite/semi-infinite domains, such as corrosion resistance (e.g. cathodic protection in vessels, tanks, pipelines, oil platforms, bridges), outdoor & underwater acoustics (e.g. infrasound, noise pollution), soil mechanics (e.g. earthquake waves, foundations, vibration isolation),
electro-magnetic radiation and scattering (e.g. magnets, radars, antennas), etc.

Accelerate your simulation process

Simcenter 3D offers best-in-class geometry and finite element (FE) modeling capabilities. Synchronous technology in Simcenter 3D helps you reduce the time spent on model abstraction and geometry editing. Geometry edits, meshes and boundary conditions are all associated with the base design. So, when the design topology changes, you can rapidly update your simulation results.

Why Simcenter 3D?

Simcenter 3D delivers all solutions for product development in one platform. The sophisticated geometry tools will save your team tremendous amounts of time on modeling, so they can put all the time and effort into exploration and innovation. Simcenter 3D is built on a predictive- instead of a validation approach to engineering. With Simcenter 3D you can explore design ideas and visualize concepts at a fraction of the cost of expensive physical testing. With the seamless integration between CAE and 3D modelling you gain many insights, into how to improve quality, reduce cost or maximize the performance of your product

Boundry Element Method (BEM)

Why the Boundry Element Method ?

The dominant competing solution is the Finite Element Method (FEM), which generally is very well implemented but has certain limitations in problems dealing with infinite/semi-infinite domains. The method has significantly higher computational requirements, making it unsuitable for e.g. acoustic, vibration wave propagation in soil and electromagnetic problems. PITHIA is based on the Boundary Element Method (BEM), the main advantage of which is the reduction of the dimensionality of the problem. This means that only the boundaries of the problem is required to be discretized in contrast with the FEM where the volume of the e.g. sea, soil or water must be discretized. Thus, the model preparation in PITHIA is significantly simpler. Additionally, it is well-known that the Boundary Element method offers unprecedented accuracy compared to the Finite Element Method.
