    LMS Imagine.Lab AMESim offers a complete 1D simulation suite to model and analyze multi-domain, intelligent systems and predict their multi-disciplinary performance. Model components are described using validated analytical models that represent the system’s actual hydraulic, pneumatic, electric or mechanical behavior. To create a system simulation model, all the user has to do is use the various dedicated tools to access the required pre-defined components from validated libraries covering different physical domains. LMS Imagine.Lab AMESim can work with a variety of libraries to create a physics-based system model. Using libraries like the Hydraulic Component Design (HCD) and IFP-Engine, LMS Imagine.Lab AMESim software can accurately simulate intelligent system behavior long before detailed CAD geometry is available.

    Validated components and dedicated libraries
    An organic and innovative concept, LMS Imagine.Lab AMESim lets engineers develop and customize their own libraries by creating new models and sub-models. To facilitate model and library sharing with suppliers, customers or internal departments, LMS Imagine.Lab AMESim offers the capability to create and publish ready-to-use catalogs of component models, while still encrypting valuable corporate know-how. LMS Imagine.Lab AMESim offers a run-only version of the software, dedicated for users who simply want to run a packaged simulation model to analyze and visualize different design alternatives.

    Dedicated application solutions accelerate engineering
    LMS Imagine.Lab AMESim offers an extensive set of application-specific solutions to assess specific subsystem behavior. This way, experts can focus on the critical design and engineering issues without spending valuable time creating and validating models. In the engineering loop, outside suppliers can model, simulate and validate components early in the design process and provide their client, the original equipment manufacturer or OEM, with a virtual functional component or subsystem mock-up. In turn, OEMs can simulate components and subsystem integration to verify total performance levels and validate key design choices.

    Easy and efficient interaction evaluation
    Engineers really appreciate the fact that they can study each system independently, but the real added value of LMS Imagine.Lab AMESim is its truly unique capability to integrate and evaluate various subsystems in a single environment. For example, engineers working on an internal combustion engine can couple models of the transmission, the thermal management system and the electrical network to test new cabin heating strategies for obviously passenger comfort as well as the effect on fuel consumption and emissions. Another case found in aeronautics, users can couple all the vital landing gear elements, such as the suspension and the braking circuit, into one single simulation to test anti-skid strategies. Off-highway OEMs can estimate driving-cycle fuel consumption by coupling the internal combustion engine with all the pumps included in the hydraulic circuits to move the vehicle and actuate the different tools.

    Develop, validate and share system models
    The LMS Imagine.Lab AMESim platform contains all the core design and simulation products that engineers need to get started. According to the application, the platform can be easily augmented with task-specific interfaces, tools and dedicated libraries. The easy interactive graphical interface lets LMS Imagine.Lab AMESim users to quickly build complex, multi-domain system models by simply connecting various validated and pre-defined components. This results in an actual working ‘rough sketch’ of the desired model. A logical 1D representation, it is easy to understand and investigate design possibilities.
