Solutions for Abaqus
ANSA is an advanced multidisciplinary CAE pre-processing tool that provides all the necessary functionality for full-model build up, from CAD data to ready-to-run solver input file, in a single integrated environment.
Some of the key CAE pre-processing tasks that can be achieved, are: geometry clean up & CAD reconstruction, shell & volume elements generation, batch meshing, parts' assembly & welding modeling, pre-processing decks for numerous solvers including Abaqus/Standard and Abaqus/Explicit, morphing coupling with optimizers, cross-section analysis, fuel tank analysis, BiW bath traps analysis etc.
ANSA owes its success to a number of innovative concepts and ways of implementation such as the customizable GUI, the integrated process automation, the direct associativity of geometry to mesh, the versatile concept of meshing areas, the in-house developed fast meshing algorithms, the flexible use of the virtual connections for the definition of alternative connections' models, the concept of the Common Digital Model, the automated features for the update and modification of FE-models, the interoperability between alternative pre-processing decks, the fast algorithms for the model’s quality & integrity check and improvement.

µETA is a thriving multi-purpose post-processor meeting diverging needs from various CAE disciplines. It incorporates innovative features, user friendly interface, fast graphics, enhanced fringe options, versatile 2D-plot tool coupled with 3D view, multiplicity of cut planes, drawing windows and models, part statistics, reporting and many others.
The software can effectively handle large models and a wide spectrum of data, including design optimization, composite materials and complex results. The validation of simulation can be greatly assisted by the use of the camera module for the perspective view of the model, the direct matching and overlay of the model view with an image, the video tracking tool and the overlaid display & synchronization of the physical test video with a simulation animation. µETA supports .odb results files of the latest Abaqus releases. Also Tie & Fastener connectivity is retrieved from .dat or .fst files. For more information, please visit: µETA
