Strategic Simulation & Analysis

Stand: 85

SSA is a company whose business is focused exclusively on simulation, sales, consulting and training. We will be showcasing our consulting services, and the Dassault Systemes SIMULIA branded products of Abaqus , Isight, Tosca and fe-safe. Abaqus is widely regarded as the best non-linear multiphysics FEA code available. It excels where contact interactions become complex and unstable, where components fire and operate in a very short timeframe, and where materials operate near their ultimate limits. Abaqus is widely used across major corporate companies for these sorts of problem, but at the other end of the scale it has also been successfully used in industrial design and engineering consultancy companies with great success.

As part of our stand we will be highlighting the use of Abaqus in Additive Manufacturing. Whilst it seems unlikely that Additive Manufacturing will displace more traditional production methods entirely in the next few years there are many specialist, low volume applications where the freedom it offers really does revolutionise what can be created. This disruption has forced a step change in how CAE is used and applied.

So using the Abaqus software we are able to show you how to:

  • Create forms and shapes previously impossible to manufacture frees many of the constraints on shape optimisation. So you really can explore the creativity of topology optimisation; but in fact you have to learn how to lead it in the right direction – these things don’t just happen.

  • Look at production process simulation of these when they are produced using 3D Printing technology
