CROSS SECTION CREATOR

altair_partner_alliance

Cross Section Creator (CSC) enriches the functionalities and capabilities ofCrash Cad Calculate by providing the possibility of fast and easy extraction of cross sections from an imported mesh model.
CSC offers a user friendly 3D environment which allows for the import of a FE model and creation of cross sections after a simple, 3-click operation.
Such cross sections can be then transferred into the Crash Cad Calculate 2D environment, where further calculations and optimization routines can be done.

Crash Cad Calculate (CCC) is an unique software based on Macro Element methodology for design and optimization of thin walled beams cross sections in a user friendly 2D environment.
In the CCC software the user can design and calculate cross sections, edit their material and compare results.

CSC Key Benefits:

  • Possibility to import mesh models (file format: .rad, .k; .key; .stl)
  • User friendly 3D environment for extraction of cross sections.
  • Cross Sections are created basing on a FE geometry in a 3-click procedure

 

CCC Key Benefits:

  • User friendly 2D environment for Cross Section design
  • The calculation process of various cross sections takes only a few seconds!
  • Possibility of detailed material definition
  • Internal optimization tool – the Cross Section Optimizer
  • User friendly tool for comparison of results of various cross sections.
  • Easy to use results reporting tool

Design loop with the usage of CSC and CCC

Results of calculations for a cross section are grouped in 7 expandable containers:

  • Axial Response
  • Design Recommendations
  • Bending Response
  • Elastic Properties
  • Lateral Response
  • Denting Response
  • Torsion Response

CSC Key Benefits:

  • Possibility to import mesh models (file format: .rad, .k; .key; .stl)
  • User friendly 3D environment for extraction of cross sections.
