East Lansing, MI (October 9, 2012) – Users of HEEDS multi-disciplinary design optimization software will soon be able to easily visualize the effect of various design variable changes on system performance without having to re-open the CAE or CAD tools where the models were created. During an optimization process, or afterward, HEEDS users can access HEEDS POST to check on the progress that HEEDS is making in meeting the optimization objectives and will be able to query each design evaluated to visualize form (CAD), stress or displacement (FEA), mode shapes (FEA), linkage positions (MBD), temperature contours, or flow streamlines (CFD).
This visual query capability in HEEDS POST will be provided through a VCollab 3D plug-in from Visual Collaboration Technologies, Inc.
East Lansing, MI (September 4, 2012) – What do you get when you combine HEEDS + NX + ANSYS + Star-CCM+? For Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU), an academic leader, this combination provides a good chance for them to win the latest Chevy Malibu Eco Future Contest.
ERAU is one of 15 teams representing prestigious universities that are participating in the EcoCar2 Competition, which is organized and sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy and General Motors. This three-year contest challenges the teams to:
