Finite Element Analysis Software Suite

October 29, 2007
Abaqus Version 6.7, a finite element analysis software suite, now has a new architecture for high-performance linear dynamics, advanced capabilities for composites simulation and nonlinear materials modeling. The software also has an intuitive and customizable interface for accelerated model building and results visualization, as well as two new interfaces for CAD associativity. The new linear dynamics architecture is fully integrated with existing nonlinear capabilities, enabling engineers to share model data and results across workgroups. The release provides a unified simulation environment for general-purpose structural integrity, power train durability, noise and vibration behavior, crashworthiness, occupant safety and tire-roadway interaction.
