FEA software offers impact module
NEi Software has announced the addition of an
explicit dynamics program to its simulation software suite — NEi
NEi Software (Westminster, Calif.), provider of NEi Nastran finite element analysis (FEA) software, has announced the addition of an explicit dynamics program to its simulation software suite — NEi Explicit 2010. The code has been used commercially since 2006 but has been enhanced to meet the needs of NEi’s customers in the aerospace, automotive and maritime industries. The dynamics program solves nonlinear impact problems that involve large deformations with complex contact and motion. Typical applications include crash tests, drop tests and ballistics scenarios. It also can be used to solve static problems with millions of degrees of freedom. Features include complete integration with the NEi Nastran environment, automatic contact generation and rigid materials definition.
