Noran Engineering’s NEi Fusion for Virtual Testing at CAD Design Stage


 
<p>Westminster, CA.  August 13, 2007.  Noran Engineering, Inc. (NEi) a leading
developer of Nastran finite element analysis (FEA) software announced major
enhancements in NEiFusion, its simulation product targeted for use early in the
design process.  In addition to a 3D parametric geometry engine for easy model
creation and Nastran solvers for accuracy, NEiFusion V1.2 contains two examples
of highly sophisticated simulation tools that have been specifically configured
for use at the CAD design stage from a cost, time, and ease-of-use standpoint.  
One is the Automated Impact Analysis (AIA) Wizard and the other is Optimization
Analysis.</p> 

 

<p>AIA, which can also perform virtual Drop Tests, uses a simple input form to
define projectile initial velocity and acceleration while the NEi Nastran solver
automatically sets up the surface contact and calculates the time steps needed
to capture an accurate nonlinear transient event simulation.  The tool has a
wide range of application possibilities from consumer portable electronic
products to medical and military devices.</p>
 
<p>For Optimization Analysis, NEi in partnership with Red Cedar Technology employed
the Hierarchical Evolutionary Engineering Design System (HEEDS) to create a tool
that can assign design objectives to minimize, maximize or target parameters
like geometric data, weight, eigenvalues, stress, and temperature.  In practice,
Optimization may reveal innovative solutions that proved difficult to find
because the design space was complicated and highly interrelated, a typical
scenario that occurs in designing high strength to weight components.</p>
 
<p>Dave Weinberg, CEO of NEi, summarized the value of the new technology “NEiFusion
is all about being relevant to today’s product development teams.  The pressure
is constantly on to design faster, better, cheaper.  But how do you do that? One
way is to change the “make and break” methodology that consumes so much time and
money in prototypes, testing and redesign.  Our answer is a simulation tool that
efficiently and affordably substitutes up-front virtual testing and provides
affordable and usable optimization at the CAD design stage.” </p>
