Vibration/Shock Software

Does anyone know of any software out there that will perform some sort of vibration/shock test/anylasis on a 3D solid model?

RE: Vibration/Shock Software

We have an older copy of Working Model which allows the input of vibration functions into a 3D model.  They have been bought out and I think the new release is VisualNastran 4D.  See the link: http://www.krev.com/

RE: Vibration/Shock Software

Any decent Finite element package will do that. Of course, the first step is to turn your solid model into a finite element model, which can be as simple as clicking a button, or can involve months of work, depending on what exactly you want to achieve.

If your solid model is an assembly then it is more difficult, but if it is just a casting (say) then building the fe model is fairly straightforward.

If you describe your problem more fully then I could probably be more specific..

White Paper - Addressing Tooling and Casting Requirements at the Design Stage
Several of the tooling and casting requirements of a part can be addressed at the design stage. If these requirements are not addressed at the design stage, lot of time is spent in design iteration when the design reaches the die caster. These design issues lead to increase in time and cost of production leading to delay in time to market and reduced profits for the organization. Download Now
