Numerical calculation and virtual process simulation centre

Centro de cálculo numérico y simulación virtual de procesos

Tools for designing, calculating and simulating components, systems and manufacturing processes. They range from mechanical, electrical and electronic design, coupled multiphysics (thermo-mechanics, fluid dynamics…), to specific process simulation tools.

It includes other automatic / control and mathematical calculation tools and artificial intelligence tools for developing virtual prototypes.


The calculation centre has the following main tools:

  • Design tools (mechanical, electrical and electronic). Altium, AutoCAD, CATIA, ELCAD, Creo, Solid Edge, SOLIDWORKS.
  • Specific process simulation tools (forging, forming, composites, casting, iron and steel industry, machining, …) Forge, Hyper*, PAM-STAMP, PAM-COMPOSITES, ProCAST.
  • Multiphysics calculation tools: Abaqus, Ansys, Hyper*, LS-DYNA, MSc (SW), NX, Creo, Oros.
  • Automation and control tools: DSpace, MATLAB, NI- LabVIEW, NX, Siemens (PLC).
  • Other specific tools (asset maintenance, artificial vision, …) Halcon, Windchill.

Aimed at:

  • Industry requiring virtualisation, automation and smart maintenance.
