Development of FEM structural analysis program V-Struct

Research Subjects and Results

Aming at the structural analysis of complicated engineering structures, a VCAD-based FEM program for elastoplastic analysis - V-Struct, which employs the satic-explicit finite element method, was developed. Its specifications are as follows.


Examples of analysis

Analysis of necking of a cylindrical bar

Analysis using the FE model generated by V-DualGrid

VCAD Public Software
