Key Enhancements:

  •  Over 150 GENOA Tutorial and Test Validation Examples
  •  Over 75 MCQ Tutorial and Test Validation Examples
  • 3D Printing Simulation Supporting Multiple G-Code formats
  •  ABAQUS CAE Plug-in
  •  Advanced Curing Analysis Capabilities
  •  Enhanced Fatigue Capabilities
  •  Expanded Filament Winding/Crimp Capability
  •  And more…

Significantly, GENOA v7 offers additive manufacturing simulation capabilities, which allow end users to simulate the 3D Printing process and accurately predict distortion, residual stress, damage initiation, and crack formation associated with AM parts.

GENOA is a durability and damage tolerance, progressive failure and reliability software providing engineers with predictive computational technology to assess behavior of advanced composite structures using a true De-Homogenized Multi-Scale Progressive Failure Analysis approach. End users are able to assess failure at the macro, micro and nano levels subject to static, fatigue, impact and environmental loadings.

MCQ is a material modeling software which provides engineers with advanced analytical capabilities to characterize and qualify material properties as input for finite element analysis. This software suite addresses continuous fiber, discontinuous fiber, ceramic matrix, metal matrix and hybrid systems; allowing end users the option to choose from MCQ Composites, MCQ Chopped, MCQ Ceramics, MCQ Metals and MCQ Nano.
