Ship Building
Ship engineers constantly face challenges to build complex structures operating in the most demanding environment. Meanwhile driven by market pressures, engineers need to reduce operating costs, address environmental concerns, ensure safety, and increase human comfort. Responding to the challenges, midas NFX provides a wide range of analysis solution that enable engineers to evaluate new concepts more cost effectively, faster and with greater frequency than with traditional prototyping and testing methods.

midas NFX provides all the analysis required (linear, nonlinear, dynamic, fatigue, optimization, thermal, fluid dynamic, multi physics ) in one unique interface. Additionally with the Designer / Analyst interfaces of NFX, designers and engineer can achieve better collaboration through true simulation driven design.

Relevant Analysis
Linear Static Analysis
Using the superb analysis performance and the linear contact function of the high performance parallel processing solvers (multifrontal & AMG), models of any complexity can be analyzed quickly and accurately.
  • Linear stress, displacement and safety factor calculations
  • Linear contacts: single-body motion, sliding, interpolation link
  • Prestress function
  • Diverse and yet practical loads and boundary conditions
    - Loads: self-weight, centrifugal force, concentrated load, moment, temperature, pressure, beam load, pipe internal pressure, remote load, bolt load, etc.
    - Boundary conditions: constraint condition, symmetrical condition, MPC condition, etc.
  • GUI based subcase definition, calculation of results and transformation of result coordinate system
  • Outstanding analysis speed due to high performance parallel solvers
    - Direct method: multifrontal solver
    - Iterative method: AMG solver
  • Checking practical analysis results (convergence error caused by mesh density, etc.)
  • Extraction of stress results using surface elements
