Simpleware Case Study: Homogenisation of the Material Properties of Multi-Phase Materials

Simpleware Double Precision Shell

Modelling large structures containing multiple phases over much shorter length scales is often very difficult. Learn how Double Precision Consultancy in the UK solved this problem using Simpleware software when analysing a Mussel shell acquired using X-ray tomography.

Simpleware Case Study: Reverse Engineering Automotive Parts

Simpleware for automotive NDE and reverse engineering

Reverse engineering and analysing industrial automotive parts can be a challenge, given the complexity of materials used and the need for precision when processing image data. Researchers have used Simpleware ScanIP to overcome these difficulties in a project involving the conversion of CT data of a cylinder head into a high-quality 3D model suitable for inspecting defects and exporting simulation-ready meshes.

Simpleware Case Study: Simulating Pore-Scale Chemical Transport

Import and visualisation of micro-CT data

Image-based modelling can be used to analyse mass transfer phenomena through porous media, with particular applications to reservoir rock pore-throats networks. The aim of these analyses is to improve our understanding and characterisation of the way fluids move through variable pore-scales.

Simpleware case study: 3D FE Model of the Diabetic Neuropathic Foot

Diabetic foot represents a complication of diabetes that can lead to foot ulcers and other serious conditions. 3D Finite Element (FE) analysis enables dynamic characterisation of different loads within the foot.

Vacancy: Simpleware Sales Engineer Germany (DACH) Area

We are an international, fast-growing and innovative software company offering a dynamic working environment and opportunities for individual initiatives and career development. This interesting and varied position will require you to work very closely with R&D departments of a range of blue chip corporate companies, research institutions and universities.

For further expansion of our business in the German (DACH) area, we are looking for a skilled and ambitious Technical Sales Engineer.

Tasks & Responsibilities

Development of a Biofidelic Human Head Model from MRI data

NRL-Simpleware head model


Traumatic brain injuries from head impact are a major issue across areas such as defence, automotive and sports, and can be costly to research using experimental testing. These injuries can be explored, though, through 3D models created from scan data and computer simulations.

Simpleware Australia Workshops

Simpleware will be running a series of free workshops in Perth, Sydney and Melbourne from March 23rd to April 1st 2015

These will include an overview of using the software to visualise, analyse, process and generate models from 3D image data (MRI, CT, micro-CT...). Learn how to obtain very high quality models from image data, how to integrate CAD objects with images, how to calculate effective material properties using Finite Element-based homogenisation techniques, and about exporting robust FE and CFD meshes for simulation in other software.

CFP: Mini-symposium at 13th US National COngress on Computational Mechanics (USNCCM13)

We invite you to submit abstracts to this Simpleware-sponsored minisymposium

Deadline: February 15, 2015

13th US National Congress on Computational Mechanics (USCNCCM13)

July 26-July 30, Manchester Grand Hyatt, San Diego, CA

Mini-symposium - Biomechanics Modeling: Advances and Applications to Real-World Problems

Organiser: Petr Krysl, University of California, San Diego

Case Study: Modelling Ultrasonic Array Response of Real Cracks

Stress corrosion cracks can be a serious problem in many engineering industries, and especially so for critical parts. While an ultrasonic transducer can be used for the non-destructive evaluation of cracks with simple shapes, complex branching cracks, such as stress corrosion cracks, require ultrasonic arrays that consist of multiple transducers and are able to inspect at multiple angles.

Case Study: Mechanics of Bacterial Biofilms on Surgical Sutures

Biofilms represent bacterial communities that attach to implanted medical devices such as sutures and catheters. When detached from implants within the body, biofilms can cause chronic infections. This study used Simpleware software to generate image-based microscopic Finite Element (FE) models from confocal laser scanning microscopy scans of real biofilm colonies attached to a surgical suture fragment.

Simpleware Webinars: Intro to Animations Tools and New Physics Modules - February 11th and 18th
