AnalySwift, LLC, a provider of efficient high-fidelity modeling software for aerospace and energy composites and other advanced materials, announced its engineering software tools are available on Purdue University’s recently launched Composites Design & Manufacturing Hub (cdmHUB). The cdmHUB has received attention as a comprehensive toolset available to the composites community also for its acceleration of the certification process for aerospace composites.
AnalySwift has two tools available on the cdmHUB platform. One is its widely used VABS software for modeling composite wind turbine blades, helicopter blades, and other complex slender structures. The second is SwiftComp Micromechanics, a program for calculating multiphysical properties of advanced materials and structures. Through a browser, users can evaluate the software tools for free and at their convenience.
“Access to the platform will help users accelerate time-to-market through a combination of efficiency and accuracy in modeling composites leveraging the powerful mathematical approach underlying our tools,” says Allan Wood, President and CEO of AnalySwift.
“Through the cdmHUB, we eliminate software compatibility issues with various operating systems,” says Dr. Wenbin Yu, Associate Director of the cdmHUB and AnalySwift CTO. “Instead, users can access them at any time through an online browser. Users simply provide the inputs and the code efficiently generates the outputs, without a need to install software to the user’s computer. Also, pulling users into a central place creates additional advantages for the composites community.”
The HUB site says it is “a collaborative web interface platform designed to enhance and build synergies among the composite community by enabling users to interact 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The platform was developed to host the simulation tools needed to: advance composite materials design, certify product integrity, simulation manufacturing solutions, and accelerate the talent base of composite materials developers and users.” What’s more, the platform will “showcase emerging simulation tools, evaluate existing and emerging simulation tools and host simulation challenges to educate and unify the composites community.”
