ESI Group Releases Virtual Performance Solution 2008

PARIS—(BUSINESS WIRE)—July 22, 2008— ESI Group (ESIN FR0004110310), a pioneer and world-leading supplier of digital simulation software for prototyping and manufacturing processes, announced today the release of Virtual Performance Solution 2008, a highly versatile software application package addressing the markets need for scalable simulation solutions and Multi-Domain Optimization.

Comprising implicit and explicit solvers, user environment software, and compute models, ESI Groups Virtual Performance Solution 2008 represents a major release: it combines several applications, technologies, and cutting-edge options to effectively address industry challenges of accelerating time-to-market, reducing product development costs, and meeting quality targets.

Virtual Performance Solution is based on ESI Groups Simulation-Based Design strategy, supporting an all-inclusive, scalable simulation solution for linear and nonlinear static load cases. Empowered by Visual Environment, an open, collaborative engineering framework, the software enables impact, crash, occupant safety, high velocity impact scenarios, optimization, as well as motion and dynamics analysis. All performance tests can be conducted using one single simulation model, thereby accelerating time-to-market.

While addressing the needs of multiple industries, Virtual Performance Solution 2008 is especially well-suited to the aerospace industry. "Simultaneous explicit and implicit solution was a dream for any engineer working in advanced structural dynamics and impact simulations, said Héctor Climent, Head of Structural Dynamics & Aeroelasticity, EADS-CASA/MTAD. With ESI Virtual Performance Solution 2008, this challenge has been successfully accomplished. It will greatly simplify our processes and help us in our path towards a more lean enterprise. This solution is very welcome, he continued.

Developed and validated in conjunction with industry leaders, Virtual Performance Solution 2008 enables high efficiency, transparency, and traceability for multi-disciplinary Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) workflows. Additionally, Virtual Performance Solution 2008 is extremely efficient and user-friendly: it requires a single software installation, draws on ESIs vast compute model library (e.g. crash dummies, human models and barriers), and offers the user ultimate flexibility by being open to third-party products.

Virtual Performance Solution 2008 includes significant enhancements in four application areas:

Structural crash analysis

Occupant safety

Impact and high velocity impact analysis

Motion and dynamics simulation

Additionally, it includes a Multi-Domain Optimization package.

From the beginning our primary objective was to ensure that only one simulation model is needed for both explicit and implicit solution schemes. Meeting this objective, along with the many other enhancements in Virtual Performance Solution 2008, underscores ESI Groups continuing commitment to developing state-of-the-art simulation solutions that address the markets needs for accelerating the overall product development process, thereby strengthening competitiveness in a market requiring ever-shorter development times at lower costs, said Peter Ullrich, Product Manager, ESI Group.
