Bangalore, India - Cranes Software announced the release of the latest version of its leading Finite Element Analysis software, NISA Version 17, today. This significantly improved version offers an enhanced DISPLAY IV, NISA’s powerful interactive graphics Pre and Post-processor. The new DISPLAY software streamlines complex finite element modeling, analysis and results interpretation for a better user experience. Additionally, the new DISPLAY has improved interoperability allowing it to interface more easily with a variety of popular CAD file formats.
A major enhancement in DISPLAY IV is the new advanced tetra-meshing capability, allowing users to easily create solid mesh models with minimal effort. New context-based menus and toolbars have been added along with functional keys for quick and easy access to all options. Additionally, contact-element creation based on user-defined tolerances has been added. To enable users to generate reports in HTML with ease, report generation capabilities have been added in the Pre and Post-processing steps.
NISA Version 17 now allows users the ability to create more complex and detailed models by extending node and element numbers to eight digits allowing much larger problems to be solved. The advanced NISA solvers have also undergone significant improvements. For example, Augmented Lagrangian formulation for surface to surface contact-element has been added. Fatigue analysis of spot-welds is now supported in ENDURE, NISA’s fatigue and fracture module. HEAT III, NISA’s heat transfer module is now incorporated in EMAG, the electromagnetic module of NISA, to allow coupled electromagnetic and heat transfer analysis. Another significant development in NISA Version 17 is its integration with Engineering Technology Associates’ (www.eta.com) software product eta/VPG, an advanced FEA-based system analysis tool.
Vipul Kinariwala, Product Director, NISA Software said, “We’re absolutely thrilled to announce the release of NISA V17. It offers over 25 major new features; most notably are the advanced Tet meshing, advanced surface meshing and automatic contact element creation features. NISA now supports up to ten million nodes which facilitates solution of problems requiring larger models. With these new capabilities NISA now ranks amongst the most advanced FEA packages commercially available. In this version heat analysis is coupled with electromagnetic analysis; OEM’s of transformers, motors, alternators, etc will benefit immensely from this new capability. We are confident V17 will go a long way in satisfying the most discerning of FE analysts.”
