Troy, Michigan (PRWEB) October 27, 2011
Engineering Technology Associates, Inc. (ETA) is pleased to announce the availability of the latest version of their advanced finite element modeling solution, PreSys™ (http://www.eta.com/index.php/software/inventium-suite/presys), part of the Inventium Suite™ of simulation products. The R3 release of the product will be available to users on October 31, 2011, and will deliver an improved experience for engineers who need to build complex finite element models for nonlinear impact, durability, vibration and thermal analysis.
PreSys™ 2010 R3 has a long list of new or improved features, with one of the most exciting additions being the availability of ‘Part Groups’ which allow the user to drag and drop parts into a group that can be used for visualization, as well as property and boundary condition definitions. A demo of this feature is available online at http://www.eta.com/index.php/part-groups-demo. “This feature will provide another productivity boost for our users,” comments Tim Palmer, PreSys Product Manager. “Users are able to quickly create and assign groups and change the various attributes of these groups – reducing the number of operations required.”
PreSys R3 also has improved surface data handling and editing features, which allow users to create or modify CAD data within the software.
“We surveyed our users and found that a great deal of their time was used to make connections between the various components of large finite element models. In some cases this may be up to 60-70% of the time required to build a model such as an automotive structure,” comments Palmer. “To address this bottleneck in engineering development, we have created an ‘Auto Spotweld’ feature that allows the user to quickly create a large number of welds at predetermined locations. This has the potential to cut spotweld creation time in half.”
Also part of the Inventium Suite™, VPG™ module updates will also be available on the 31st. These application specific modules allow users to create unique finite element models and insightful simulations efficiently. VPG™ modules include Drop Test, Fluid-Structure Interaction and Safety.
For occupant safety analysis, the Safety module allows engineers to position finite element dummy models (included in the software), add seat belts and evaluate effects such as dummy and seat interactions.
