AnalySwift’s Composite Simulation Tools Available Online through cdmHUB Web Platform at Purdue University

30 September 2014

AnalySwift,’s engineering software tools are available on Purdue University, Indiana, US, Composites Design & Manufacturing Hub (cdmHUB). 

According to AnalySwift, tools available on the cdmHUB platform include its popular VABS software for rigorously modelling composite wind turbine blades, helicopter blades, and other complex slender structures; and the powerful SwiftComp Micromechanics programme for efficiently calculating multiphysical properties of both advanced materials and structures. 

Allan Wood, President and CEO of AnalySwift commented “We are very pleased to participate in the cdmHUB platform.  This access will help users accelerate time-to-market through a unique combination of both efficiency and accuracy in modeling composites leveraging the powerful mathematical approach underlying our tools.”

Dr. Wenbin Yu, Associate Director of the cdmHUB and Chief Technical Officer of AnalySwift, continues, “Through the cdmHUB, we eliminate software compatibility issues with various operating systems.  Instead, users can access them at any time through an online browser.  Users simply provide the inputs and the code efficiently generates the outputs, without a need to install any software to the user’s computer.  Also, pulling users into a central place creates additional advantages for the composites community.”

According to the Composites Design and Manufacturing HUB (cdmHUB), the programme is “a collaborative web interface platform designed to enhance and build synergies among the composite community by enabling users to interact 24 hours a day, seven days a week.  The platform was developed to host the simulation tools needed to: advance composite materials design, certify product integrity, simulation manufacturing solutions, and accelerate the talent-base of composite materials developers and users.”  Additionally, the platform will “showcase emerging simulation tools, evaluate existing and emerging simulation tools and host simulation challenges to educate and unify the composites community.”
