Componeering Inc. has recently signed new distribution agreements to expand its sales and support partner network for ESAComp software.
New European distributors include EnginSoft S.p.A. for Italy and IDAC Ltd for the United Kingdom and Ireland. Convergent Mechanical Solutions has become a representative for the United States and Canada.
ESAComp is comprehensive composites design and simulation software developed by Componeering Inc. (Helsinki, Finland). ESAComp can be used as a stand-alone tool for conceptual, preliminary and detailed design of layered composite products. It also interfaces with major finite element software and adds composites specific features to their post processing, such as detailed assessment of composite failure with advanced failure criteria.
ESAComp has been developed with the support of the European Space Agency (ESA), and hence it is widely used by the European aerospace industry. New users come from various industries using high-performance composites.
At JEC Composites Show 2005 in Paris (April 5-7), Componeering introduces a new release of ESAComp with enhanced ANSYS integration. Similar integration is under way for MSC.Patran and ABAQUS with the support of the FE software vendors.
CRP Technology collaborated with the Department of Aerospace Science and Technology of the Politecnico di Milano (PoliMi) on the construction of parts for the aeroelastic wind tunnel demonstrators for ‘Aeroelastic Flutter Suppression (AFS)’ e ‘GLAMOUR’ projects.
Research to develop a revolutionary high-performance composite metal hybrid stabiliser bar for trucks and trains has entered a new phase. The findings from the project to date show that the technology has the potential to spin out into other sectors such as aerospace and could see the UK take a global lead with this disruptive technology.
Bindatex is celebrating 10 years of partnership and delivering 50 tonnes of multiaxial fabrics to a global composites reinforcement manufacturer. The specialist slitting service enables the manufacturer to supply its customers with material in a wide variety of widths.
