HBM nCode announces the release of the latest version its software suite, nCode 11.0.

  • Features 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
  • Improvements to overall execution speed of processing test data helps reduce analysis time of huge data sets with complex flows
  • Functionality of the vibration fatigue solver includes new types of loading, conditions and 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
  • Supports Modal Superposition allowing larger models, more frequency steps, larger frequency range, better fidelity of results and faster analysis
  • Strain Gauge Analysis engine identifies suitable strain gauge locations for the load reconstruction process
  • Gauge selection procedure also has the capability of generating metrics that assist in selecting the appropriate number of gauges to use
  • nCode DesignLife allows users to assess thicker welds commonly used in off-highway and construction machinery or other applications that require 3-D solid models prior to physical testing using the stress integration method outlined in the ASME Boiler & Pressure Vessel Code VIII (Division 2) standard that is independent of the finite element mesh
  • TcL macro creates a solid weld definition file from user selected curves and surfaces of the geometry in Altair HyperMesh
  • Offers complete fatigue solution from high cycle to low cycle, simple to multiaxial, crack initiation to crack growth, all in one package
  • Significant improvements have been made to the Jiang plasticity model and the automatic analysis selection methods
  • New pre-defined processes allow for auto correlation and cross-correlation of input data with various lags/scaling options and an also perform convolution between input data and an impulse/filter kernel response
  • Additional features include a new waterfall analysis method, zoom analysis, and the ability to generate Campbell plots
