Tools for progressive failure analysis

Helius PFA software provides powerful tools for enhanced FEA (finite element analysis) of composite structures, including progressive failure analysis.

Helius PFA features

  • Import Moldflow results

    Transfer as-manufactured data for more accurate simulation. (video: 1:37 min.)

  • Material nonlinearity and progressive failure

    Analyze the progression of composite failure. (video: 1:45 min.)

  • Direct FEA integration

    Enhance existing Abaqus, ANSYS, or NASTRAN FEA. (video: 3:04 min.)

  • Support for Moldflow materials

    Incorporate Moldflow materials into your FEA code. (video: 1:04 min.)

  • Multiple analysis types

    Perform static, explicit, and fatigue analyses.

  • Advanced composite analysis

    Includes 3D weld line, compression response, progressive failure, delamination, and other analyses.

  • Efficient processes

    Simplify FEA and material input, and improve convergence rates.

  • Material exchange

    Interoperate with Moldflow software, as well as third-party FEA systems.
