The Altair Partner Alliance Adds Unique Micromechanic Composites Tool From AnalySwift, Furthering The APA's Composite Solution

TROY, Mich., March 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Altair Partner Alliance announced today that AnalySwift will be joining the program and adding its complex composite modeling tool, SwiftComp Micromechanics, to the growing offering of partner applications available to HyperWorks users under Altair's license manager. SwiftComp is a unique software that combines efficiency and accuracy when assisting with the design and modeling of complex composites to improve structural designs, estimating a structure's capabilities or engineering a new material with enhanced performance characteristics.

"AnalySwift is thrilled to be working with the Altair Partner Alliance," said Allan Wood, president & CEO of AnalySwift. "As the world-class micromechanics program, SwiftComp Micromechanics is a unique and versatile tool that can be used for the analysis and modeling of composites. With the ability to be applied to a large span of industries and assignments, SwiftComp is exceptionally valuable, now especially for Altair's HyperWorks users."

SwiftComp Micromechanics is a truly general-purpose micromechanics code, applying a powerful mathematical approach to enable quick results without the loss of accuracy. While being extremely efficient, SwiftComp accurately calculates a complete set of physical properties in seconds. It runs only one analysis, which can be done on a typical laptop computer, and takes just seconds to complete, unlike other approaches, which may take several hours. The software obtains a complete set of fully coupled, multiphysical properties without the application of highly crafted load and boundary conditions, postprocessing or multiple runs. 

"The time savings could easily be orders of magnitude," said Wenbin Yu, Ph.D., chief technology officer for AnalySwift.  "A major benefit to users is the ability to efficiently design and analyze materials and structures in ways not possible otherwise--for instance, models that are too large to be handled by computers in a practical way."

The necessary properties can be calculated by SwiftComp for any heterogeneous material, including layered, binary, fiber/particle reinforced, and woven composites, as well as any other composites created using other manufacturing techniques. This tool also can achieve a complete set of three-dimensional material properties using a one-dimensional analysis of the 1D unit cell for binary composites. It also can analyze other heterogeneous materials, including construction materials, metals, bone and brain tissue, ice and many others.
