Engineering simulation provider, Ansys, and provider of industry-specific engineering software, Vistagy, have taken a major step in closing the loop between composites design and analysis by integrating Ansys 13.0 Composite PrepPost and FiberSIM 2010 composites engineering software. This bi-directional integration, enabled by FiberSIM�s Analysis Interface, allows customers to exchange detailed lay-up information between design and analysis quickly and accurately. As a result, users can optimize parts, assemblies and structures more efficiently.

With composites becoming more prominent in a variety of industries D including aerospace, automotive, wind energy and marine D both companies recognized the need for an integrated, bi-directional solution that permits stress engineers and designers to expeditiously exchange accurate composites data for laminate plies and fiber orientations. Traditionally, designers and stress engineers have worked in very different environments, which prevented an efficient exchange of data. This significantly slowed and limited the product development process. But using this integration, customers can conduct a quicker and more iterative process for optimizing composite parts. This ensures that there is no disconnection between part certification and manufacturing since lay-up details can be validated by ANSYS Composite PrepPost and that the analysis of the design model is accurate.

The combined composites solution requires purchasing software from both Vistagy and Ansys.
