Large, three dimensional contact problems are among the most challenging problems for structural simulation systems. Converged solutions are often difficult to obtain, especially when the additional effects of friction and material plasticity are significant.
Akselos Reduced Basis Finite Element Analysis (RB-FEA) is a new approach to structural simulation which is 1000x faster than conventional techniques. Akselos contains a hybrid solution capability that may be used to greatly increase the speed and stability of contact models. These computational benefits allow contact effects to be included within models of in-service scenarios resulting in enhanced predictive capabilities.
This webinar will provide an overview of these capabilities and how they may be applied to both design and in-service applications.
