June 23, 2015 (Calumet, MI) — ThermoAnalytics, Inc., the global leader in advanced thermal simulation methods, has a trifecta of news to deliver:
• Software Release; Version 12.0
• A refreshed website
• A rebrand of their premier product; RadTherm® will now be TAITherm™
Version 12.0 – Bigger, Broader & Better
ThermoAnalytics has consistently delivered a powerful CAE software suite, but version 12.0 provides users more simulation power, and results that focus on component temperature limits. The most exciting feature being released with the latest version is support for distributed memory parallel processing. By running on a parallel cluster of machines, the already-fast Partial-Direct or Multi-Grid solvers will yield a significantly faster thermal solution.
Development within the software suite has also rapidly progressed with many new powerful post-processing features. “The 12.0 release of our software suite of CAE tools represents our journey into a new era of modeling & simulation,” says Keith Johnson, CEO of ThermoAnalytics. “In the past we focused predominantly on speed and accuracy, which we still value highly, as evidenced in this version’s new solver features. What is transformational is the ability to intelligently visualize your analysis results so that you can obtain the best engineering outcomes and cost benefit over your design space.”
The goal is to give CAE teams increased flexibility and offer more options to process results. For example, in the design phase, catching parts that are at risk of thermal failure can prevent serious headaches down the road. With the “Thermal Pass/ Fail Reporting” feature, parts with minimum or maximum design temperatures are easily analyzed. This allows users to swiftly compare extreme part temperatures to their designated minimum or maximum design criteria.
New, Intuitive Website
A new website with more concise content and an updated look has been launched at www.thermoanalytics.com. The new site provides users with product information and related content, such as discussions of simulation best practices, viewable on any device.
“TAITherm™” – The New “RadTherm®”
Formerly under the name “RadTherm®”, ThermoAnalytics’ original code was developed as a radiation visualization package for analysis of radiation-dominant heat transfer issues. However, nearly two decades of development has led our software to become one of the most widely-used multimode heat transfer analysis tools available and a program that has officially outgrown the name “RadTherm®.”
With version 12.0, RadTherm® and RadTherm IR development will move forward under the new brand TAITherm™ and TAIThermIR. ThermoAnalytics will continue using the MuSES® brand because its moniker remains aligned with its defense mission: Multi-Service Electro-optic Signature code (MuSES™).
