For example, an interactive wizard, called Analysis Advisor, answers many basic analysis questions, and can walk new or occasional users through such problems as the kind of analysis to perform, what to do if a part or assembly fails to mesh, and how to interpret analysis results see Figure below.
Discrete element method simulation software enhances particle collision analysis, spring and damper motion, fiber modeling The program now makes it possible to analyze assemblies of thick and thin components by using a combination of solid mesh for thick bodies, and shells for thin bodies see Figures below.
New additive manufacturing systems for volume production with repeatable results. Click on images to enlarge. Overall, the new release makes design validation easier and faster for novice and advanced users alike. Making Tough Problems Simpler Meshing has always been a struggle for new users of design analysis. Contributing editor Louise Elliott is a freelance writer based in California.
The addition of h-adaptive meshing enables the program to converge automatically to a correct solution. Designers can check these files in and out of the vault, and archive results of analyses for multiple design revisions. In its release, COSMOSWorks has added a number of intelligent tools to help design engineers increase the scope of design validation analyses they can perform reliably and confidently.
In essence, the virtual connectors, loads, and supports have the equivalent of what would be very time-consuming manual work already programmed into them.
This relieves users of much of the guesswork and frustration of refining the mesh manually. Moreover, the software now offers an improved user interface for surface-to-surface contact meshing, as well as the ability to analyze multi-body parts, and define contact conditions between the multiple bodies.
Engineering Analysis with COSMOSWorks 2006 Professional
The RX portfolio focuses on applicability, efficiency and scalability. In a new Analysis Library feature, novice users—and experts mentoring them—can create sets of loads and restraints that can be dragged from one part or assembly to another, adding automation to repetitious types of analyses, especially those specific to individual companies.

Users can now also specify a flexible floor so that they can study the different effects of dropping the object on a concrete floor or a carpeted floor. The software prompts the user through processes that used to take dedicated analysts a long time, making very complicated analyses much easier to perform.
First Take: COSMOSWorks – Digital Engineering
COSMOSWorks makes the process of shape optimization easier as well, by using a property manager rather than dialog boxes for such optimization input as objectives, design variables, and constraints. By being able to account for those variations, the software can now predict how many trips the vehicle can make before a part failure. Meshing has always been a struggle for new users of design analysis.
The module supports load history data, so that loads of varying amplitude can be studied. By Louise Elliott In its release, COSMOSWorks has added a number of intelligent tools to help design engineers increase the scope of design validation analyses they can perform reliably and confidently.
The mixed meshing enables accurate analysis of thick and thin components with fewer resources. COSMOSWorks contains many enhancements to make the meshing process transparent to the user, while enabling more precise analysis.
Designing occupant friendly interiors that meet requirements in both safety and style, necessitates the extensive Difference in stress distribution when a cell phone dropped from the same height on a rigid floor A and a flexible, wooden B floor. Specifically, the supports are spot welds, ground bolts, and links; the loads, or boundary 206, consist of virtual walls and hinges.
They can also measure velocity and acceleration after impact—an cosmoswogks tool for designing electronics equipment. It can also now plot rainflow and damage matrix plots at any location.
The mesh automatically iterates refinements of critical areas until the solution converges.
