Computer Simulation Technology (CST) announced the release of the 2014 version of the electromagnetic simulation tool, CST STUDIO SUITE. According to the company, the latest edition has been developed to improve the performance of the solvers and increase the capabilities for hybrid simulation without compromising on usability.
CST STUDIO SUITE comprises a range of electromagnetic simulation tools for high frequency, low frequency, charged particle and multiphysics applications, which are all available within a single graphical user interface.
Both the hexahedral and tetrahedral mesh have been improved to reduce the cell count and help to discretize complex or low-quality CAD data.
The simulation of complex systems has also been improved. Field source coupling and multiphysics simulations can be set up automatically using the new system assembly and modeling (SAM) wizards. SAM allows different solvers to be combined in a single simulation project and can be used to model complex systems one component at a time.
The import and export tools have been upgraded to support more file types and offer greater control of model quality. In addition, the 2014 release introduces version control. Imported CAD files can now be monitored by the software, with changes to the external data automatically reflected in the simulation model.
