AnalySwift Selected for Grant to Further Advance SwiftComp Micromechanics Technology
AnalySwift announced today a grant awarded to further advance its powerful SwiftComp Micromechanics software. AnalySwift’s SwiftComp Micromechanics was one of sixteen grants awarded statewide by Utah’s Technology Commercialization and Innovation Program (TCIP). The TCIP is a state of Utah funded grant program administered by the Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED) to help accelerate the process of taking university-developed, cutting-edge technologies to market.
SwiftComp Micromechanics is a dramatically different engineering software that enables users modeling complex composites an unprecedented combination of efficiency and accuracy in improving structural designs, estimating a given structure’s capabilities, or engineering a new material with enhanced desirable performance characteristics. While other approaches, such as those based on finite element analysis (FEA), may take several hours, SwiftComp can accurately calculate the complete set of physical properties in seconds using one analysis and a typical laptop computer. Used for design and analysis of composites, SwiftComp can handle any material or structure that exhibits complex heterogeneity.
“We are pleased that the SwiftComp Micromechanics technology was selected along with several other cutting-edge Utah-based technologies,” said Allan Wood, President and CEO of AnalySwift. “The grant will be used to further improve the powerful SwiftComp Micromechanics program, which has been used to model very complex material and structural problems in a wide variety of industries. Such applications include advanced aerospace and energy composite materials and structures, metals, insulation materials, ultralight materials, construction and building materials, geomechanical analyses, and even biological materials such as bone tissue.”
“This orders of magnitude improvement in efficiency (without a loss of accuracy) is enabled through a uniquely powerful mathematical approach, which also renders SwiftComp the first truly general-purpose micromechanics code.” Said Dr. Wenbin Yu, CTO of AnalySwift and Associate Professor at Utah State University.
