SwiftComp™ provides an efficient and accurate computational tool for modeling composite materials and structures. It can be used either independently as a tool for virtual testing of composites or as a plugin to power conventional FEA codes with high-fidelity multiscale modeling for composites. Based on the Mechanics of Structure Genome, SwiftComp enables engineers to model composites as black aluminum, capturing details as needed and affordable. This saves orders of magnitude in computing time and resources without sacrificing accuracy, while enabling engineers to tackle complex problems impossible with other tools.
This tool is based on Gmsh modified for SwiftComp to perform constitutive modeling and integrated with Caliculux modified for structural analysis based on constitutive models computed by SwiftComp. The user manuals and various tutorials can be found in the supporting documents. If you want a quick start, you can follow our YouTube Gmsh4SC Tutorial Series.
If you feel the cloud version is not convenient for you, you can download the gmsh/calculix source codes and executables in the supporting document.
