SimulationX - Pneumatics

Learn to model pneumatic valves and drives, clutch actuating systems, pneumatic handling equipment, as well as mixtures of different gases within SimulationX.

In this training course, participants will learn how to build pneumatic components and systems. The fluid properties, as well as the different calculation options, are analyzed and explained. Creating own fluid models is demonstrated using the SimulationX Fluid Designer. The training demonstrates both the detailed modeling of subsystems and the creation of larger systems. The focus of this training is the correct handling of valve and cylinder models as part of the overall system. The user gains an insight into the calculation approaches used for pneumatic resistances. Furthermore, interactions between pneumatic components with mechanics as well as with thermal systems are explained. During the training, numerous practical examples are used for explanation.
