A new high speed version of the ASAS finite element analysis system from WS Atkins Engineering Software has demonstrated speed improvements of 25 fold over the previous version with typical improvements of ten fold. Disk space requirements are also reduced by three fifths.
The ASAS suite has been developed to service the needs of the offshore and marine industry, driven by the need to analyse the very large structural models now demanded for deep water environments.
New high accuracy low order brick elements have also been introduced which provide good results using simpler and therefore smaller models.
