NEi Software and Firehole Technologies Partner to Deliver Composites Analysis to NEi Nastran

NEi Software and Firehole Technologies have announced a software integration and distribution partnership. The partnership will first focus on leveraging Firehole’s multiscale composites analysis technology, Helius:MCT, to deliver an advanced composites analysis application to users of the NEi Nastran finite element analysis (FEA) package.

Integrating Firehole’s Helius:MCT directly into NEi Nastran will enhance the composite-specific toolset with its constituent-based analysis technology.  Helius:MCT decomposes the stress and strain fields of a composite material into the stress and strain fields for the fiber and matrix components—allowing insight into the root of composite failure.

Helius:MCT will form the core technology behind NEi’s Advanced Composites module, anticipated for release with NEi Nastran V10.0.  Available with other commercial FEA packages as an add-on, this will be the first time Helius:MCT will be integrated directly within the base FEA package.
