Noran Engineering, Inc. (NEi) announced that it will demonstrate new analysis and simulation software at the Atlantic Design and Manufacturing Show, June 3-5, 2008 at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City. NEi is at Booth # 338. Digital prototyping technology developed by NEi enables product engineers to visualize the response of their designs to structural and thermal loads before investing in physical prototypes and test programs. This means changes and optimization can occur early in the development process saving time, money and improving the ability to meet regulatory requirements like FDA approval.
Features of interest to product developers include new virtual testing tools like Automatic Impact Analysis and Drop Test (AIA), Design Optimization, Automatic Surface Contact Generation (ASCG‚), and Hyperelastic and Composite Material modeling. AIA is used in a variety of areas including military projectiles, product packaging and drop testing of consumer electronic products like cellphones and laptops. Design Optimization finds solutions for design problems that are complex because of competing parameters, for example, structures that must be both strong and light. ASCG provides real world fidelity in modeling assemblies. Hyperelastic capabilities allow modeling of rubber like materials.
