Operate with Efficiency
SwiftComp is a revolutionary multiscale, multiphysics composite simulation code that quickly and easily delivers the accuracy of 3D FEA at the efficiency of simple engineering models. In doing so, SwiftComp reduces barriers for engineers by enabling them to model composites as easily as metals using conventional structural elements in their FEA codes (without losing accuracy while capturing all the microstructural details). SwiftComp provides unified modeling for 1D (beams), 2D (plates/shells), or 3D structures, calculating all the effective properties. Use SwiftComp either independently for virtual testing of composites or as a plug-in to power your conventional structural tools with high-fidelity composites modeling. SwiftComp can compute the best structural model for use in macroscopic structural analysis, as well as perform dehomogenization to compute the pointwise stresses in the microstructure. SwiftComp directly interfaces with ANSYS, ABAQUS, and others.

MULTISCALE, MULTIPHYSICS MODELING OF COMPOSITES
VIRTUAL TESTING OF COMPOSITES
SwiftComp provides a seamless, high-fidelity link between constituent material properties and engineering structural design and analysis. To do so, SwiftComp implements the novel Mechanics of Structure Genome theory (recently developed by Purdue University), which unifies composite micromechanical and structural modeling. SwiftComp differs drastically from the conventional micromechanics-then-structural mechanics approaches. By avoiding assumptions commonly invoked in other approaches, SwiftComp provides the most mathematical rigor and best engineering generality. The problem is decoupled into two sets of analyses: a constitutive modeling and a structural analysis, allowing the structural analysis to be formulated exactly as a general (1D, 2D, or 3D) continuum. This also confines all approximations to the constitutive modeling, ensuring the best accuracy.
