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.

The latest release of Simpleware’s 3D image processing and model generation software includes new features designed to enhance visualisation, analysis and segmentation of 3D image data. Features include a particles analyser, centreline tools and new physics modules for calculating effective material properties using homogenisation techniques. 

Simpleware Version 7.0 now available

We're delighted to announce the Version 7.0 release of our 3D image processing, analysis and model generation software. The release comes with a wide range of new features including:

New Animations - generate animations from within the ScanIP interface - explore your data and create videos to communicate work to colleagues, with options for 'fly-throughs' available.

Simpleware Case Study: Total Hip Replacement Implant Positioning

CAD and FE models of hip implants

Positioning hip implants poses a number of challenges, particularly in terms of getting bone and implant contact right. While experimental testing can be costly, image-based modelling can be very effective at predicting the best and worst positions for implants. 

Case Study Effect of Pore Size on Pellet-Based Catalyst Flow

We have a new case study on our website based on research at Imperial College into multiscale tomography and calculating permeability for catalysts. The project involved studying the influence of pore structure on fluid flow across large length scales in silica-alumina pellet-based catalysts.

3D data at different length scales was obtained from XMT, DBFIB-SEM and ET scanning and segmented into a binarised dataset.

Simpleware Case Study: Fuel Cell Microstructure from FIB Data

In this case study, based on work carried out at Imperial College and University College London, research was carried out into the performance of solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs). The microstructure of an SOFC electrode was obtained using FIB tomography, and a volume mesh generated in Simpleware software, with the model then exported to Abaqus CAE. Boundary conditions were set in the solver and stress analysis conducted, which were able to approxiamte peak maximum principal stresses in response to thermal expansion.

Simpleware and Polygonica collaborate on new software release

We're pleased to announce a collaboration with MachineWorks' Polygonica for our future software releases. The collaboration involves adding Polygonica's mesh processing libraries into our +CAD module, which extends our core 3D image processing platform ScanIP.

Simpleware Case Study: Pseudomorph Modelling

In this project, Simpleware's image processing and mesh generation software was used to complete an ancient geological process through new technology. The goal of the project was to create a pseudomorph, an object that maintains an original shape over time while changing its inner materiality.

Reverse Engineering Ants for Robotics

New research is emerging out of a project where Ohio State University used our software to reconstruct the anatomy of an ant neck. In this project, micro-CT scans of an ant neck were reconstructed using Simpleware software and exported as a mesh for analysis in Abaqus.

Simpleware case study - racehorse injury biomechanics

We've just posted a new case study on our website, which focuses on how image-based modelling from CT and processing in Simpleware software can enable better understanding of racehorse joint injuries.

New Simpleware Case Study - Cerebral Aneurysm Risk Evaluation

Learn about how Simpleware software was used to aid in the creation of models for analysing the risk of cerebral aneurysm rupture in ANSYS. The results have been used to develop a clearer sense of how image-based modelling can help to better diagnose aneurysm risks based on the mechanical properties of tissue.

New Simpleware Case Studies

We have a number of new case studies at www.simpleware.com, which cover recent applications of our 3D image to model software in the fields of Biomedicine and Materials research. 

Image Based Modeling for Biomedical Implant Design

We'd like to share a recent publication based on our software, which converts 3D volumetric image data into computational models; this article, published in partnership with MSC Technology, highlights how we've been able to produce successful FE models for biomedical implant design.

We have more case studies and information available on our website - www.simpleware.com - where you can also download a free 30 day trial of our software.
