CST – Computer Simulation Technology

Simulation Performance

Product design cycles are tight, and there are many hurdles to be crossed between the concept and the final product. Simulation offers benefits throughout the design process, but to stay at the cutting edge, engineers, designers and researchers need their simulation results quickly while maintaining excellent accuracy. Performance is a combination of these two factors: speed and accuracy.

To make CST STUDIO SUITE® as useful as possible, we devote a substantial amount of development time to improving the performance of our products and optimizing the solver technology. Thanks to the co-operation with Intel®, our products can take full advantage the power and speed of the latest generation of processors. For more information, please see the Intel®/CST solution profile.

Innovations such as the PERFECT BOUNDARY APPROXIMATION (PBA)®, the THIN SHEET TECHNIQUE (TST) and True Geometry Adaptation improve the efficiency of the flagship time domain and frequency solvers by improving their accuracy without compromising on speed. For models that are difficult to solve with these solvers, we also offers a range of other technologies which offer excellent performance for certain types of simulation, such as the asymptotic and integral equation solvers for very large problems and the fast resonant solver for high-Q structures.

Performance is not just about raw power, however. Usability also plays a key role in helping users achieve their goals by streamlining the simulation workflow and allowing it to slot more easily into the product design process. To that end, we work to ensure that CST STUDIO SUITE is as user-friendly as possible. The Ribbon-based user interface guides the user through the simulation process, and the Project Wizard tool suggests the most suitable configuration and solver type for a fast, accurate simulation.
