DigitalClone for Additive Manufacturing
DC-AM is a physics-based Integrated Computational Materials Engineering platform developed for additive manufacturing parts that models process-microstructure-fatigue performance in conjunction. The solution virtually analyzes additive manufacturing parts at the micro scale, including grain size, grain morphology, porosity. Customers stated that thanks to their DigitalColone modeling, the iterations applied for design optimization can be reduced by 75% and the cost of part qualification can be reduced by up to 50%.
Three main steps are used in DC-AM to predict the life of the part and to analyze whether it is working with the most suitable parameters.
Process Modeling: Residual stresses and strains related to process parameters.
Microstructure Modeling: Grain structure and porosity depending on the location and parameters studied.
Fatigue Modeling: Fatigue performance under certain loading conditions.
The physics-based simulation package has been used in different additive manufacturing platforms (PBF, DED) and various alloy systems that our customers are working with. Related materials are Inconel 625, Inconel 718, 7-4 PH, 15-5 PH stainless steel, Ti64 and AlSi10Mg alloys. Apart from that, simulation can be applied to new alloys with minimal calibrations required.

ESI Virtual Seat Solution (VSS) seat design software is a dedicated software solution to the topic of virtual prototyping of seats. With VSS, OEMs and seat suppliers can design, manufacture, test, develop and validate virtually any design process, seat prototypes, without the need for costly physical prototypes.
In a standard design process, real prototypes are prepared, tested, developed and tested repeatedly. This time frame is usually the stage where issues and areas to focus on are discovered, but this happens at the end of the development cycle. At this point, it may be too late or too expensive to change your seat design.
However, with Virtual Seat Solution seat fabrication simulation, you can test your seat's performance before the design freezes and anticipate any manufacturing issues. This enables further innovations and fixes early in the development cycle. You can evaluate all performance domains (security, H-Point estimation, static and dynamic comfort, thermal comfort, etc.) using a single core model. This feature enables seat designers, seat engineers and seat specialists to work simultaneously and efficiently. Using a single model, you can quickly evaluate tradeoffs between different design options to develop your virtual prototype.
Additionally, the Virtual Seat Solution provides a highly accurate estimate of seat performance as it takes into account the effects of production. Thanks to special applications and human models, users can evaluate performance by accurately and accurately reflecting the interaction between seat and passengers.
The VA One SEA Module is heavily used by all sectors dealing with noise & vibration problems and carrying out research and development projects.
Hybrid module, acoustic and vibration engineers; It offers the most advanced modeling technology in the world for vibro-acoustic methods. FE/VEM/SEA modeling techniques have become available simultaneously with the Hybrid module on the same model.
The structural FE module allows you to calculate the responses of the structural FE subsystems using your already existing NASTRAN solver. Apart from NASTRAN, it can exchange data with dozens of solvers without any problems.
The acoustic FE module has been developed to create precise models of closed acoustic cavities in low frequency bands and to optimize the low frequency performance of poro-elastic noise canceling elements.
The Foam Module is used to calculate the acoustic properties of poro-elastic materials using the "Biot Theory". With the Foam module, PEM (foam finite element) models can be created, especially for low frequency analysis, can be added to VA One models, and integrated with FE structural and FE acoustic subsystems.
