AnalySwift’s SwiftComp Micromechanics in Final Round of Technology Commercialization and Innovation Program Grant
AnalySwift presented last week at the World Trade Center Utah in the final round of Utah’s Technology Commercialization & Innovation Program (TCIP). AnalySwift was previously awarded a similar grant in 2011 for enhancements to the VABS technology for modeling composite beams, such as wind turbine blades, helicopter blades, high aspect ratio wings, composite bridges, and other slender structures. The current application will fund enhancements to the SwiftComp Micromechanics program, which will be carried out at Utah State University. SwiftComp Micromechanics has recently received attention as the first truly general-purpose micromechanics code, particularly for its applications for advanced composites and other heterogeneous materials and structures. The TCIP grants are part of the state’s economic development efforts to increase entrepreneurship, innovation, and investment by accelerating the process of taking cutting-edge university-developed technologies to market. The program is modeled after Utah’s successful USTAR Technology Commercialization Grant program.
