Paris, France and Providence, R.I., USA, May 19, 2009 — Dassault Systèmes (DS) (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), a world leader in 3D and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, today announced the availability of Abaqus 6.9, its technology-leading unified finite element analysis (FEA) product suite from SIMULIA.
Abaqus is used by designers, engineers, and researchers in a broad range of industries, including electronics, consumer packaged goods, aerospace, automotive, energy, and life sciences to evaluate real-world behavior of materials, products, and manufacturing processes. This release delivers key new capabilities for fracture and failure, high-performance computing, and noise and vibration. In addition, SIMULIA is continuing to enrich the product suite with capabilities for modeling, meshing, contact, materials, and multiphysics.
“In order to meet today’s fast-paced development requirements, up-front simulation techniques play a major role,” states Frank Popielas, Manager Advanced Engineering, Sealing Products Group, Dana Holding Corporation. “The synergy between Abaqus 6.9 and high-performance computing clusters will help us minimize the unit cost and retain optimal turn-around time.”
“By working closely with our customers on the definition and review of new functionality, we have developed the most robust finite element analysis software available,” stated Steve Crowley, director of product management, SIMULIA, Dassault Systèmes. “Abaqus 6.9 provides manufacturing companies with the ability to consolidate their nonlinear and linear analysis processes within a unified FEA environment.”
