Version 11.0 of HBM nCode’s software suite is now available, with speed improvements that enable users to rapidly process large amounts of data, and state-of-the-art methods for designing and validating components subjected to vibration excitation.
The functionality of the vibration fatigue solver in nCode DesignLife has been improved and now includes new types of loading, new conditions, and new calculations. Added methods, such as multiple simultaneous PSDs, sine on random, and sine dwell loading, enables improved simulation of real-world conditions and offers benefits for engine and powertrain applications.
nCode DesignLife now also supports modal superposition enabling larger models, more frequency steps, a larger frequency range, the better fidelity of results, and faster analysis.
“nCode 11.0 focuses on new capabilities for vibration fatigue and frequency analysis, enabling engineers to avoid unnecessary over-design and prevent operational failures,” said Paul Roberts, product manager, HBM nCode.
“Additionally, significant improvements have been made to the overall execution speed of processing test data. For example, an aerospace customer has reduced analysis time of huge data sets with complex flows by 30%.”
