IronCAD integrated analysis now provides fluid analysis and reporting
ATLANTA GA, November 12th, 2015 - IronCAD, a leading provider of design productivity solutions, today announced a major update to their integrated analysis solution MPIC (Multi-Physics for IronCAD). MPIC provides advanced FEA (Finite Element Analysis) focusing on ease of use for fully coupled multiphysics stress, thermal, electrostatic and fluid analysis.
In the latest release, fluids has been enabled and is fully coupled with stress, thermal and electrical physics for true multiphysics capabilities. The new CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) module is based on the newest advanced Optimal Least-Square formulation with a velocity-vorticity-pressure equal order/convergence formulation.
Other improvements include a new unit system for more flexible metric or US unit system engineering applications. The simulation analysis is computed based on the actual user geometry/material unit to better preserve numerical accuracy. A new energy-based MLS (moving-least-squares) FE tying fills the intended/unintended small gaps/overlapping of parts for general assembly analysis without laborious geometry fixing. In addition, customers now have new reporting options to create meaningful reports of your analysis to easily share among your team.
IronCAD customers will also benefit from a more convenient analysis interface which now employs a contour display slide bar to dynamically vary the contour display to search for peak results. Plus, a new streamline slide bar easily controls the streamline density interactively to trace heat flow, flow line, or any user specified components to easily visualize the physics.
Cary O'Connor, Vice President of Marketing at IronCAD, stated, "MPIC is seamlessly integrated into our 2016 Design Collaboration Suite so it’s easy to add material, forces or constraints to run analysis scenarios on IRONCAD models or assemblies. Plus if customers make CAD modifications, the built-in associativity quickly updates and re-solves the analysis. With the new additions for 2016, customers have more advance capabilities all within an easy to use application that can be used to report critical validation information early in the design process.”
MPIC is included with full product capabilities including fluids with the standard IronCAD solution for 30-days then extends as a node-limited version allowing you the ability to experiment validation of your designs. Even though the extended version is node-limited, MPIC's technology using SefeaTM (Strain-Enriched Finite Element Analysis) gives you extended capabilities to test you products at a lower mesh level. SefeaTM is the newest enriched finite element formulation developed specifically for low-order 4-node tetrahedron elements commonly used in CAD simulation. It achieves the same accuracy as 2nd-order elements, but is more robust, without mid-side-node noise, and requires much less computing cost.
Based in Atlanta, GA, IronCAD is a leading provider of 3D Design Productivity Solutions that deliver the highest levels of customer satisfaction and productivity. Individual components of this solution can be used standalone, complementary within an existing design environment, or can be used together to collaborate effectively throughout the enterprise to extend productivity. Its flagship product IRONCAD has won many industry awards for its innovative technology and leads the industry in its ease of use and design productivity.
