MultiMechanics has officially released an integrated solution with Dassault Systèmes SIMULIA Abaqus!
The combined solution gives Dassault Systèmes users access to MultiMechanics’ material analysis tools within Abaqus/CAE. “We are very excited to work with Dassault Systèmes,” says Dr. Flavio Souza, Co-Founder of MultiMechanics. “Combining the power of Abaqus with MultiMechanics’ ability to accurately predict composite material behavior is truly a win-win for design engineers in all industries working with innovative materials.”
Dassault Systèmes SIMULIA delivers a scalable portfolio of Realistic Simulation solutions including the Abaqus product suite for Unified Finite Element Analysis, multiphysics solutions for insight into challenging engineering problems, and lifecycle management solutions for managing simulation data, processes, and intellectual property. By building on established technology, respected quality, and superior customer service, SIMULIA makes realistic simulation an integral business practice that improves product performance, reduces physical prototypes, and drives innovation.
Dennis Corain, Director of SIMULIA Alliances, Dassault Systèmes said, “Through our open technology and partnership strategy we fully support MultiMechanics in the integration of their physics-based TRUE MultiscaleTM technology into Abaqus. Since composite materials are widely used in the aerospace industry and are gaining more use in other industries such as automotive, wind energy, and consumer products, this integration allows each of our global user communities to leverage best-in-class technologies to rapidly optimize the structural performance of composite parts.”
MultiMech - the company’s flagship product - utilizes a unique physics-based approach - denominated TRUE MultiscaleTM Technology - to accurately predict complex failure mechanisms observed in advanced materials. Initially a standalone tool, MultiMech can now be easily embedded into a multitude of CAE software platforms, so engineers can perform concurrent multiscale analyses within their preferred workflow. Dr. Souza adds: “This is the first integration of its kind. It’s a very exciting development for the composite engineering community.”
Using MultiMechanics’ breakthrough TRUE MultiscaleTM technology, engineers no longer need to resort to guessing about composite properties, how manufacturing induced variation affects performance, or how a composite material behaves and fails within a part. Through this integration, engineers can now analyze new or existing parts and confidently predict how the material microstructure affects the part design - all quickly accomplished within Abaqus. Assigning a realistic composite microstructure to a part in Abaqus is now as quick and easy as filling out an Abaqus material card.
