Automated impact analysis, drop test

View realistic and meaningful projectile impacts and virtual drop test simulations. 

Automated impact analysis (AIA) introduces the power that automated tools can bring to demanding simulation problems. 

Take a complex, time-consuming simulation task. Then, simplify and automate it. AIA requires a minimum amount of data for the analysis: projectile velocity and acceleration.

AIA determines the time steps, duration, and complex contact interaction between projectile and target. This helps provide a thorough and physically realistic simulation of impact due to the comprehensive treatment of the phenomenon.

From an engineering standpoint, this is more useful than a simple imposition of force at a point found in other impact or drop tests; AIA provides insight into dynamic, implicit, nonlinear behavior or real-world impact problems.
