powerful analysis made easy
MPIC (Multi-Physics for IronCAD) is the newest generation of integrated CAD/FEA for general entry level to advanced design simulations. It is developed and designed specifically for CAD design simulation by AMPS Technologies Company and available for the IronCAD Design Collaboration Suite 2015 and newer release versions (only). MPIC focuses on ease of use for CAD users and provides fully coupled multi-physics with stress, thermal, and electrostatic.
As part of the IronCAD Gold Partner Program, MPIC is included with full product capabilities with the standard IRONCAD solution for 30-days then extends as a node-limited version allowing you the ability to experiment validation of your designs. Even though the extended version is node-limited, MPIC’s technology using SefeaTM (Strain-Enriched Finite Element Analysis) gives you extended capabilities to test you products at a lower mesh level. SefeaTM is the newest enriched finite element formulation developed specifically for low-order 4-node tetrahedron elements commonly used in CAD simulation. It achieves the same accuracy as 2nd-order elements, but is more robust, without mid-side-node noise, and requires much less computing cost.
Seamlessly integrated, simply add a multiphysics analysis to your IRONCAD model. Add material, forces, constraints, and hit the AutoSolve to quickly mesh and return your analysis results. Make modifications on the IRONCAD model and associativity will allow you to simply update and re-solve your analysis in seconds.
Beyond the included version, options to purchase full accuracy levels, advance versions, and add-on functionality are available.
- MPIC Basic includes full mesh quality controls with static/steady state and natural modal vibration extraction for product assembly analysis.
- MPIC Advance provides additional large deformation and large rotation abilities, as well as advanced nonlinear modeling ability of nonlinear elastic, plastic, hyperelastic/foam materials with fully runtime coupled nonlinear material dependency.
- MPIC Advanced Dynamic Add-on adds advanced Stress Stiffened Modal analysis, Arc-Length Nonlinear Buckling, Frequency Domain analysis, and Fatigue analysis for advanced analysis options.
- MPIC Fluid Add-on expands the fluid dynamic physics to the existing stress, thermal and electrical and works seamlessly to investigate flow physics impact with ease.
MPIC is an advanced multithread FEA design application with fast solver technology that can process large models with millions of equations in minutes.
