nCode, a global provider of durability, performance, and
operational measurement and decision management solutions that help
companies eliminate unexpected failures, announces the release of
GlyphWorks 4.0 software. The product is an easy-to-use environment
that enables engineers to interactively build and run analytical
processes on huge multi-channel datasets. GlyphWorks provides a
wide range of data processing and visualization capabilities with
specialized options for durability including fatigue analysis,
accelerated testing, and frequency domain tools. The latest release
embodies nearly 50 enhancements.
New GlyphWorks 4.0 features:
Accelerated Testing is used to develop a laboratory test specification that combines multiple datasets to produce a single shaker profile that reproduces the same overall damage but in a fraction of the time.
Crack Growth is used to predict how quickly a crack will propagate in a structure such as an aircraft fuselage given a set of load conditions. Finite element models and results can now be used directly in fatigue predictions. This provides a uniquely integrated Test and CAE environment for durability engineering.
GlyphWorks 4.0 adds new weighting filters for vehicle ride quality analysis, easier navigation of large workflows, additional input file formats, and an improved ‘Super Glyph’ capture facility that allows complex workflows to be quickly simplified and encapsulated for others to use.
“In today’s fiercely competitive global marketplace, engineers need to progress more quickly from gigabytes of data to informed decisions,” says Jon Aldred, GlyphWorks product manager. “GlyphWorks has proven itself a significant productivity benefit for testing groups in many industries that are faced with reducing costs while accelerating development. In particular, the new Accelerated Testing module provides direct time and cost savings for specifying and running component tests.”
