SOFTWARE/HARDWARE: NEi Software announced the release of NEi Fusion 2.1, a unique combination of Nastran FEA solvers and 3D modeler powered by SolidWorks®.
The NEi Fusion 2.1 upgrade includes: Automatic bolt element generation for simulating bolted connections spatial load variability for defining hydrostatic pressure, interpolating results from CFD nonlinear transient analysis for time varying nonlinear events mixed beam/shell meshing for structures typically found in aerospace, automotive, and maritime.
NEi Fusion is used by product development professionals like designers and engineers to optimize design time, cut prototyping and testing costs, and improve quality. The product is also of interest to FE analysts, who like the option of a pre-post tool with CAD/FEA model associativity, and consultants, who need a Nastran solution in their simulation software portfolio.
