AnalySwift LLC (Logan, Utah), a provider of high-fidelity modeling software for composites and other advanced materials, has released the newest version of its general-purpose micromechanics code, SwiftComp Micromechanics 3.0. Also known as VAMUCH, the code is designed for use with heterogeneous structures and materials, particularly composites. Primary among the new features are the program’s multiphysics capability. It can be used to homogenize heterogeneous materials that have coupled or uncoupled responses to mechanical fields, electric fields, magnetic fields and thermal fields. It predicts elastic, conductive, dielectric, magnetic and diffusive properties of heterogeneous materials, as well as coupled properties, such as coefficients of thermal expansion and pyroelectric, pyromagnetic, piezoelectric, piezomagnetic and/or electromagnetic properties. The newest version can model Unit Cells (UCs) with curved edges or surfaces, and it also relaxes the restriction that the origin of the coordinate must be at the UC center. Furthermore, it can model temperature-dependent materials with or without assuming small temperature variations.
