Cranes Software announces the release of finite element modeling software eta/VPG Version 3.4. This version features the debut of integrated linear static and Eigen value modules from the general purpose FEA software suite NISA, which allows users to easily create and visualize advanced simulations within the eta/VPG environment.
Continuing the journey to surpass its pricey competition, eta/VPG aims to provide product development engineers world-wide with the most accurate and complete simulations for expert insight into their designs.
Product Manager, Tim Palmer explained,
“With this latest release, 63 new or improved functions, as well as the availability of the NISA solver will make eta/VPG the most robust, versatile and accurate system-simulation solution available.”
Eta/VPG’s commanding PrePost module boasts the most advanced modeling tools available, allowing the user to create complex finite element models faster than ever before. It offers an advanced toolset, outstanding auto-meshing tools and automated spot-weld generation—within a zero text editing environment.
For mechanical system analysis, the eta/VPG/Structure module includes tools to simulate road surfaces and tire models, as well as analyze vehicle dynamics, system and component durability and noise vibration and harshness (NVH) using LS-DYNA.
The eta/VPG/Safety module is used extensively in the automotive industry for the modeling of vehicle impact analysis with a complete crash tool library, allowing for accurate vehicle impact, occupant safety and airbag simulations.
The Drop Test and ALE/FSI modules complete the vertical application tools within eta/VPG. The drop test functions are used for consumer electronics quality and packaging analysis. The ALE/FSI module is used primarily in military applications for the simulation of blasts and development of blast resistant vehicles.
