Structural Mechanics

Our experience with NX™ Nastran, NX™, Fibersim™, LMS Samcef™ and Femap™ can help you efficiently and effectively model and analyze your mechanical designs from both a dynamic and structural perspective. MAYA has decades of industrial experience meshing complex parts, creating large assemblies, validating finite element models as well as solving and extracting critical information from the solution. We also have experience with vibration, shock simulation and modal testing, as well as with software development of durability and laminates composites simulation products.

 Specifically MAYA can help with:

  • Dynamic simulation
    1. Normal modes, harmonic, random, transient vibration, and acoustic noise simulation
    2. DDAM and shock response spectrum (SRS) analyses
    3. Large-scale assembly models
    4. Modal Testing and Test-Analysis Correlation
  • Modal test plans and procedures
    1. Pre-test definition of accelerometers and exciters
    2. Acquire test data, validate, compute frequency response functions, and extract the modal parameters
    3. Correlate the test data with the analytical model
    4. Update the analytical model to match the test results with NX™ Nastran and NX™ FE Model Update.
  • Vibration test support
  • Linear stress analysis
    1. Careful FEA characterization of design
    2. Element force and stress extraction
    3. Composite materials
    4. Bolted and welded joints
  • Thermo-elastic simulation
    1. Mapped NX™ Thermal temperature results
    2. Nodal, elemental temperatures and temperature gradients
  • Durability simulation
    1. Metals, composites
    2. Field measurements
  • Optimization
    1. Topology, shape and gradient-based optimization
  • Nonlinear analysis
    1. geometric and material non-linearities such as contact, large deformation and plasticity
  • Data recovery and processing
    1. We develop scripts and commercial software that speed up results post-processing.

Key benefits of a MAYA solution include:

    • Better understanding of your simulation results
    • Clear recommendations to improve your products and processes
    • Reduced product development costs and timeline
    • Improved finished product quality and performance
    • Reduce costly physical prototypes by using simulation to  understand product performance
    • Rapid validation of simulation via modal testing and test-analysis correlation
    • Achieve faster results by leveraging state-of-the-art dynamic solvers and scripts
    • Quickly move from design to simulation in the NX™ suite of software
