The module supports load history data, so that loads of varying amplitude can be studied. COSMOSWorks contains many enhancements to make the meshing process transparent to the user, while enabling more precise analysis. It can also now plot rainflow and damage matrix plots at any location. By Louise Elliott In its release, COSMOSWorks has added a number of intelligent tools to help design engineers increase the scope of design validation analyses they can perform reliably and confidently.

Development of an integrated tool able to optimize the geometric features of a door trim The program now makes it possible to analyze assemblies of thick and thin components by using a combination of solid mesh for thick bodies, and cosmosworms for thin bodies see Figures below.
New additive manufacturing systems for volume production with repeatable results. For example, an interactive wizard, called Analysis Advisor, answers many basic analysis questions, and can walk new or occasional users through such problems as the kind of analysis to perform, what to do if a part or assembly fails to mesh, and how cosmpsworks interpret analysis results see Figure below.
This relieves users of much of the guesswork and frustration of refining the mesh manually. Contributing editor Louise Elliott is a freelance writer based in California. In essence, the virtual connectors, loads, and supports have the equivalent of what would be very time-consuming manual work already programmed into them. The software prompts the user through processes that used to take dedicated analysts a long time, making very complicated analyses much easier to perform.
Specifically, the supports are spot welds, ground bolts, and links; the loads, or boundary conditions, consist of virtual walls and hinges.
By being able to account for those variations, the software can now predict how many trips the vehicle can make before a part failure.
The mixed meshing enables accurate analysis of thick and thin components with fewer resources. Discrete cosmoeworks method simulation software enhances particle collision analysis, spring and damper motion, fiber cozmosworks In its release, COSMOSWorks has added a number of intelligent tools to help design engineers increase the scope of design validation analyses they can perform reliably and confidently.
COSMOSWorks makes the process of shape optimization easier as well, by using a property manager rather than dialog boxes for such optimization input as objectives, design variables, and constraints.
In a new Analysis Library feature, novice users—and experts mentoring them—can create sets of loads and restraints that can be dragged from one part or assembly to another, adding automation to repetitious types of analyses, especially those specific to individual companies.
Meshing has always been a struggle for new users of design analysis. Difference in stress distribution when a cell phone dropped from the same height on a rigid floor A and a flexible, wooden B floor.
Designers can check these files in and out of the vault, and archive results of analyses for multiple design revisions. Click on images to enlarge.
Designing occupant friendly interiors that meet requirements in both safety and style, necessitates the extensive The addition of h-adaptive meshing enables the program to converge automatically to a correct solution. Making Tough Problems Simpler Meshing has always been a struggle for new users of design analysis. Users can now also specify a flexible floor so that they can study the different effects of dropping the object on a concrete floor or a carpeted floor.
The mesh automatically iterates refinements of critical areas until the solution converges. The RX portfolio focuses on applicability, efficiency and scalability.
They can also measure velocity and acceleration after impact—an important tool for designing electronics equipment. Also new forthe software uses Design of Experiments DOE technology to help users find optimum design solutions. Overall, the new release makes design validation easier and faster for novice cosmosworms advanced users alike.
