Empowers designers to better understand the underlining physical phenomena of their designs

The mechanical module allows users to perform structural, thermal and eigenmode simulation on parts and assemblies using Finite Element Method to design optimal products and reduce physical prototype testing.
The linear static module helps in validating different design scenarios under specific loads and restraints.It calculates stresses, deformations and safety factors.
The thermal module calculates the temperature distribution, thermal stresses on parts and assemblies and predicts thermal failure.
The frequency module calculates the mode shapes and natural frequencies of structures and can help predict failures due to resonance.

Electrostatic is the branch of science that deals with the phenomena arising from stationary and/or slow-moving electric charges. Electrostatic approximation rests on the assumption that the electric field is irrotational, i.e. the curl of the electric field is null.
The Electrostatic module is primarily used for computing electric potential and electric field due to charges and voltages in insulators and conductors.
The Electrostatic module outputs the following results: Electrostatic potential, Electric field, Electric flux density, Capacitance matrix, Force, Torque and Stored energy.

The electrostatic module includes a parallel multi-core solver to allow for a faster computation time for large models.

Electric Conduction is, in essence, based on the electrostatic approximation. Unlike the Electrostatic analysis which deals with insulators and electric conductors, the Electric Conduction deals with only conducting media which can sustain a current flow.
The Electric Conduction module is primarily used for computing current flow in conductors due voltage differences.
The Electric Conduction module outputs the following results: Electrostatic potential, Electric field, Electric flux density, Capacitance matrix, Force, Torque and Stored energy.
The Electric Conduction module offers a coupled thermal analysis that computes temperature, temperature gradient and heat flux.
The electrostatic module includes a parallel multi-core solver to allow for a faster computation time for large models.

Magnetostatics is the study of static magnetic fields. In electrostatics, the charges are stationary, whereas here, the currents are steady or DC (Direct Current).
As it turns out magnetostatics is a good approximation even when the currents are not static as long as the currents do not alternate rapidly.
Furthermore, Maxwell's displacement current that couples the electric and magnetic fields is assumed to be null.
The Magnetostatic module outputs the following results: Magnetic field, Magnetic flux density, Current density, Force density, Inductance matrix, Flux linkage, Resistance, Force, Torque and Stored energy.
The Magnetostatic module offers a coupled thermal analysis that computes temperature, temperature gradient and heat flux.
The Magnetostatic module includes a parallel multi-core solver to allow for a faster computation time for large models.

AC, or alternating current, Magnetic, is the study of magnetic fields due to alternating, or time harmonic, currents.
Similar to Magnetostatic, Maxwell's displacement current that couples the electric and magnetic fields is assumed to be null.
In AC Magnetic analysis, the Gauss's law for magnetism and Faraday's law are invoked to compute the magnetic field and its related quantities due to alternating electric currents and voltages.
The AC Magnetic module outputs the following results: Magnetic field, Magnetic flux density, Current density, Eddy current, Force density, Inductance matrix, Flux linkage, Resistance, Impedance, Core loss, Eddy loss, Hysteresis loss, Ohmic loss, Current, Voltage, Force, Torque and Stored energy.
The AC Magnetic module offers a coupled thermal analysis that computes temperature, temperature gradient and heat flux.
The AC Magneticmodule includes a parallel multi-core solver to allow for a faster computation time for large models.

Transient Magnetic, is the study of magnetic fields due to time varying currents, typically caused by surges in currents.
Similar to Magnetostatic and AC Magnetic, Maxwell's displacement current that couples the electric and magnetic fields is assumed to be null.
In the Transient Magnetic analysis, the Gauss's law for magnetism and Faraday's law are invoked to compute the magnetic field and its related quantities due to permanent magnets and time varying electric currents and voltages.
The Transient Magnetic module outputs the following results at each time step: Magnetic field, Magnetic flux density, Current density, Eddy current, Force density, Inductance matrix, Flux linkage, Impedance, Ohmic loss, Current, Voltage, Force, Torque and Stored energy.
The Transient Magnetic module offers a coupled thermal analysis that computes, at each time step, temperature, temperature gradient and heat flux.
