Agency for Defense Development Licenses VABS Composite Simulation Software

17 January 2017

The Agency for Defense Development in South Korea has licensed and is leveraging AnalySwift’s VABS simulation software to accelerate the simulation of composite slender structures.

Located in South Korea, the Agency for Defense Development (ADD) is an advanced research institute with a mission of guaranteeing national security through technical  capacity based onchange, reform,and research activities.

“We are very pleased tohave been selected by ADD to help meet their modeling needs for composite slender structures,” saidAllan Wood, President &CEO of AnalySwift. “As a versatile cross sectional analysis tool, VABS delivers high-fidelityresults early on, reducesdesign cycle, and shortens time to market.”

“The VABS program is a uniquely powerful tool for modeling composite blades andother slender structures, commonly called beams,” said Dr. Wenbin Yu, CTO of AnalySwift. “VABS reduces analysis time from hours to seconds by quickly and easily achieving the accuracyof detailed 3DFEA with the efficiency of simple engineering models.

“With VABS, engineers can calculate themost accurate, complete set of sectionalproperties such as torsional stiffness, shear stiffness, shearcentre for composite beams made with arbitrary cross section and arbitrary material,” said Yu. “It can also predict accurate detailed stress distribution for composite beams.”
