OMAHA, NEBRASKA — April 2016 — MultiMechanics, a leading provider of CAE software for the analysis of advanced materials, in collaboration with global engineering simulation provider, ANSYS, today announced the release of an integrated solution to better meet the needs of customers working with composites and other advanced materials. Engineers and designers working with innovative materials will soon have access to a best-in-class TRUE Multiscale™ simulation solution.
The integrated solution gives ANSYS users access to MultiMechanics’ material analysis tools within ANSYS® Workbench™. “We are very excited to release this tool”, says Dr. Flavio Souza, Chairman and CTO of MultiMechanics, Inc.. “Such close partnership with ANSYS has enabled us to embed MultiMech™ in an intuitive and native workflow within ANSYS® Workbench™. This is truly a 10x improvement especially when it comes to user experience and accurate prediction of failure in advanced materials.”
Excitement is shared both ways, as points out Richard Mitchell, Lead Product Marketing Manager for ANSYS' Structural Mechanics product line: "We are very excited about the new developments from MultiMechanics and the opportunities that MultiMech™ will bring to our valued customers. Making use of the open architecture of the ANSYS simulation platform to deliver their TRUE Multiscale™ technology, MultiMechanics is opening new doors to multiscale material modelling. Combining ANSYS' leading simulation platform with MultiMechanics’ powerful multiscale technology will give customers the ability to concurrently couple macro-scale events with sub-scale calculations in a single simulation."
MultiMech™ - the company’s flagship product - utilizes a unique physics-based approach - denominated TRUE Multiscale™ Technology - to accurately predict complex failure mechanisms observed in advanced materials. Initially a standalone tool, MultiMech™ can now be easily embedded into a multitude of CAE software platforms, so engineers can perform concurrent multiscale analyses within their preferred workflow.
Using MultiMechanics’ breakthrough TRUE Multiscale™ technology, engineers no longer need to resort to guessing about composite properties, how manufacturing induced variation affects performance, or how a composite material behaves and fails within a part. Through this integration, engineers can now analyze new or existing parts and confidently predict how the material microstructure affects the part design - all quickly accomplished within ANSYS. Assigning a realistic composite microstructure to a part in ANSYS is now as quick and easy as assigning any other material card. MultiMech™ will soon be available on the ANSYS App Store through the ANSYS Customer Portal.
