Anura3D

anura3dANURA3D: Numerical modelling and simulation of large deformations and soil–water–structure interaction using the material point method (MPM).

The Anura3D software uses a dynamic explicit MPM formulation based on a multiple set of material points. Anura3D is capable of simulating multi-phase materials (dry, saturated, unsaturated soil) and free surface water. A fully coupled hydro-mechanical approach is implemented to model the interaction between soil, water and gas phases in fully and partially saturated porous media, which is understood as a continuum mixture of solid skeleton and pore liquids. Additionally, contact problems can be solved since an advanced contact algorithm is available. A library of material constitutive laws is included as well as a UMAT-style interface for external user-defined soil models subroutines.

For the Anura3D MPM software, a GiD interface is developed for creating the geometry and the mesh, defining material parameters and boundary conditions and specifying calculation parameters. The calculation is performed by a stand-alone Anura3D executable.

PLCd

plcdPLCd (PLastic Crack dynamic) is an implicit finite element code for the numerical simulation of nonlinear dynamic behavior of structures of complex constitution. PLCd code is developed at International Center for Numérical Method in Engineering (CIMNE) and at the Department of Structures and Strength of Materials of the Technic University of Catalonia (UPC).

SAFIR

SAFIRSAFIR is a computer program that models the behavior of building and civil engineering structures subjected to fire. SAFIR runs thermal and mechanical analyses based on nonlinear finite element method.
The structure can be made of a 3D skeleton of linear elements such as beams and columns, in conjunction with planar elements such as slabs and walls. Volumetric elements can be used for analysis of details in the structure such as connections. Different materials such as steel, concrete, timber, aluminum, gypsum or thermally insulating products can be used separately or in combination in the model.

Kratos

Kratos is a free multi-physic Finite Element C++ open source code. One of the main topics in engineering nowadays is the combination of different analysis (thermal, fluid dynamic, structural) with optimising methods in one global software package with just one user interface and, even more, the possibility to extend the implemented solution to new problems.

DEMPack

Basic formulation of the discrete element formulation using spherical or cylindrical particles was first proposed by Cundall and Strack. Similar formulation has been developed in CIMNE and implemented in the explicit dynamic discrete/finite element code DEMPack.

The code DEMPack has a lot of original features like modelling of tool wear in rock cutting, thermomechanical coupling and other capabilities not present in commercial discrete element codes.

Carat++

Carat++ is a finite element program for structural simulation, structural shape optimization and form finding. Moreover, specific capabilities for isogeometric structural analysis of thin-walled structures composed out of multiple patches including trimming are developed, which constitutes the newly developed Isogeometric B-Rep Analysis (IBRA). This methodology is the basis for CAD-CAE integration, which is explored in collaboration between Chair of Structural Analysis at TUM and GiD at CIMNE.

To get more information about Carat++ please visit carat.st.bv.tum.de or contact the Chair of Structural Analysis at TUM directly www.st.bgu.tum.de

XFINAS

XFINAS is a nonlinear finite element program, which is capable of the stability assessment of thin walled structures and enables a powerful nonlinear structural dynamic analysis with material and geometric nonlinearity.

SEMBA

SEMBASEMBA is a framework envisaged for simulations in the field of EMC. EMC problems have important challenges from a simulation point of view: results need to be obtained for large bandwidths or transient responses, usually involving extremely complex geometries. SEMBA contains the necessary tools to manage the whole simulation chain for an EMC problem.

PARACHUTES

logo_parachutesPARACHUTES is a computer program for the fast simulation of parachutes-payload systems. The solution methodology focus mainly on gliding parachutes and is designed to produce aerodynamic, structural and trajectory data with minimal computational requirements. This makes PARACHUTES a handy tool that can help developers improve design and testing procedures while cutting analysis time and cost.
