Dassault Systemes (DS; Paris, France) announced that Lenovo (Raleigh, NC), an IT and PC company, will deploy SIMULIA (Providence,  RI) software to establish a simulation technology center within Lenovo’s Innovation Design Center (IDC).


The new center will use Abaqus unified finite element analysis (FEA) software from SIMULIA to evaluate realistic product performance during the design of Lenovo’s innovative PC and portable electronics products.

Lenovo uses Abaqus during the design process to simulate dynamic impact, heat transfer,  vibration, fatigue, and other realistic performance characteristics of its products. To evaluate and reduce noise and vibration in desktop computers,  Abaqus computes the natural frequencies of the assembled computer. This enables design engineers to determine what parts to modify and where to add damping materials in order to make the computer quieter and more durable.

For virtual drop testing of cell phones, Lenovo uses Abaqus to simulate the stress and strain on the cell phone design as it is dropped from various directions. Such virtual tests help to identify appropriate design changes-if necessary and to determine if the product will meet performance requirements. Realistic simulation solutions from SIMULIA are enabling companies, such as Lenovo, to lower costs, reduce time-to-market, and improve product quality-resulting in higher levels of customer satisfaction.
