Latest Opera electromagnetics simulator accelerates design projects and adds 3D mechanical stress analysis: Page 2 of 2

The latest version of the Opera electromagnetics simulator for design engineers, from the Vector Fields Software business unit of Cobham Technical Services, adds three-dimensional mechanical stress analysis, extending the tool's multiphysics capability to provide a single-step solution to complex design problems. By capturing mechanical deformation in conjunction with electromagnetic and thermal modelling, the integrated software can greatly reduce design complexity and timescales.
user-friendly approach to creating models of coils (and other common structures) which allows a user to select common forms of construction from a library, and then enter the design data using dialog boxes.

To aid the final optimization of a design, Cobham's Opera software package can be supplied with an advanced auto-optimization tool that has been designed specifically to work with its finite element methods. This tool is able to work out the best solution for one or multiple goals — even when they compete with each other.
