Improve composite FEA process AND get manufacturing output

How to improve your composite FEA process AND get manufacturing output as a side benefit

When working with laminated composites it is important to consider the effects that draping the pre-pregs has on the orientations and thickness that get used in finite element analysis. 

Laminate Modeller is a plug-in tool for MSC Patran that does this fundamental job, but offers so much more.

Predicting Flowrate with scFLOW

CFD demonstration

A common use of Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) is in the design of fans and pumps.  This short video demonstration shows how simple it is to set up a centrifugal fan model in scFLOW

In this example we are looking to predict the flowrate throughput for a given fan speed, which is easily done by following steps in the wizard driven interface.
