T-FLEX Analysis offers a wide spectrum of specialized analysis tools to help engineers virtually test and analyze complicated parts and assemblies. It employs the finite element method for performing static, frequency, buckling, thermal, optimization, fatigue and other analysis. T-FLEX Analysis shows how a model will perform under real-world conditions before it is built.

Associative Model
The CAE model is fully associative to the design model, since it uses native T-FLEX CAD geometry. T-FLEX Analysis ensures that the very latest design information is available for simulation without the need for any time-consuming geometry translation or data re-creation. Design changes made in a model are automatically updated for analysis calculations. Meshing is automatic and completely adaptive to even the most complex model geometry.

User Interface
Complete integration with T-FLEX CAD means that T-FLEX Analysis users can perform design analysis, simulation and optimization directly from their T-FLEX CAD user interface. T-FLEX Analysis utilizes the T-FLEX CAD Model Tree, Properties dialog boxes, command and menu structure, and many of the same mouse and keyboard commands, so anyone who can design a part in T-FLEX CAD can analyze it without having to learn a new interface.

Area of Application
Quick and inexpensive analysis often reveals non intuitive solutions and benefits engineers by providing them with a better understanding of product characteristics. Whether used in the mechanical, electromechanical, aerospace, transportation, power, medical or construction industries, T-FLEX Analysis can help to shorten development time, reduce testing costs, improve product quality, increase profitability, and cut time to market.

Structural Static Analysis
Structural analysis capabilities enable engineers to perform static stress analyses of parts and assemblies under various loading conditions. Static studies calculate displacements, reaction forces, strains, stresses, and factor of safety distribution. Static analysis can help you avoid failure due to high stresses. Various structural loads and restraints can be specified including force, pressure, gravity, rotational load, bearing force, torque, prescribed displacement, temperature, etc.

Frequency Analysis
Frequency Analysis determines a part's natural frequencies and the associated mode shapes. It can determine if a part resonates at the frequency of an attached, power-driven device, such as a motor. While resonance in structures must typically be avoided or damped, engineers may choose to exploit resonance in other applications. The typical applications include acoustical speaker design, aerospace structure design, bridge and overpass architecture, construction equipment design, musical instrument study, robotic system analysis, rotating machinery and turbine design, vibrating conveyor optimization and others.

Buckling Analysis
Critical buckling load analysis examines the geometric stability of models under primarily axial load. It helps avoid failure due to buckling which refers to sudden large displacements and can be catastrophic if it occurs in the normal use of most products. Buckling analysis provides the lowest buckling load which is of interest and is usually used in such applications as automotive frame design, column design, infrastructure design, safety factor determination, transmission tower design, vehicle skin design and others.

Thermal Analysis
Capabilities for simulating thermal effects include steady-state and transient heat transfer analysis. Thermal studies calculate temperatures, temperature gradients, and heat flow based on heat generation, conduction, convection, and radiation conditions. Thermal analysis can help you avoid undesirable thermal conditions like overheating and melting.

Designing and producing innovative products that meet performance criteria is a goal of every manufacturer. Using optimization techniques, engineers can improve a proposed design, resulting in the best possible product for minimum cost. Because your designs may have hundreds of variable parameters with complex interrelationships, finding an optimal design through manual iterations is hit-or-miss at best. T-FLEX Analysis relieves the burden of improving product designs by automating the iterative process of comparing performance against specifications.

Frequency Response Analysis 
Frequency response analysis determines the steady-state operation of a machine, vehicle or process equipment design subjected to continuous harmonic loading. As compared to linear transient stress analyses, frequency response analysis provides an easy, quick method in which the only inputs are a constant frequency and amplitude. For example, this analysis type could be used to determine the vibration effects of a washing machine with an unbalanced load or a bent wheel on a vehicle.

Fatigue Analysis
Repeated loading and unloading weakens objects over time even when the induced stresses are considerably less than the allowable stress limits. Fatigue analysis is vital for products such as steel rails, beams and girders, which can experience mechanical failure under repeated or otherwise varying loads that never reach a level sufficient to cause failure in a single application. T-FLEX Analysis simulates fatigue-based failure and lets users design for durability by subjecting a product to cyclic applications of stress in order to determine its endurance limit and thereby ensure safety.

Analysis Results (Post Processing)
T-FLEX Analysis provides a comprehensive range of post processing operations with animation, various plots, lists, and graphs depending on the study and result types. The special reporting command helps you document your studies quickly and systematically by generating Internet-ready reports. The reports are structured to describe all aspects of the study.


T-FLEX Dynamics is a general-purpose motion simulation add-on application for studying the physics-based motion behavior of a CAD design without leaving the T-FLEX CAD environment. T-FLEX Dynamics is the virtual prototyping software for engineers and designers interested in understanding the performance of their assemblies. It lets you make sure your designs will work before you build them.

Behavior of Mechanical Assemblies
When designing a mechanical system such as an automotive suspension or an aircraft landing gear, you need to understand how various components (pneumatics, hydraulics, electronics, and so on) interact as well as what forces those components generate during operation. T-FLEX Dynamics is a motion simulation solution for analyzing the complex behavior of mechanical assemblies. T-FLEX Dynamics allows you design and simulate moving assemblies so that you can find and correct design mistakes, test virtual prototypes and optimize designs for performance, safety, and comfort, without having to build and test numerous physical prototypes. Fewer physical prototypes, not only cuts costs, but also reduces time to market, giving you a better quality product, that is built right the first time.


Physics-based Models Associated to Engineering Conditions
T-FLEX Dynamics offers several types of joint and force options to represent real-life operating conditions. As you build your T-FLEX CAD assembly model, T-FLEX Dynamics can automatically create the parts, joints and contacts of your mechanism generating them from assembly constraints and from model geometry. There are no limitations on the contact types since the program provides accurate analysis of the contacting bodies based on the Parasolid geometry, eliminating the need to define manually contact constraints. Each contact pair can be described with specific impact and friction parameters. T-FLEX Dynamics allows you to determine how your design will react to dynamic forces, such as gravity and friction. You can use forces to model spring and damping elements, actuation and control forces, and many other part interactions. Forces can be applied even interactively by dragging the parts during computation.


Industry Application
By combining physics-based motion with assembly information from T-FLEX CAD, T-FLEX Dynamics can be used in a broad span of industry application like analyzing control systems, such as hydraulics, electronics, pneumatics; understanding robotics performance during operation; optimizing or minimizing the force imbalances in rotating systems; understanding gear drives; simulating realistic motion and loads of suspension systems; evaluating the dynamic behavior of space assemblies, such as launchers and satellites; optimizing consumer and business electronics; predicting component and system loads for fatigue , noise or vibration; etc.

Reviewing Results
After simulating an assembly, you have a variety of results visualization tools in the form of XY graphs or numerical data of displacements, velocities, accelerations, force vectors at joint locations, displaying a trace on any point of the body during the entire simulation, etc. Special "pair of bodies" sensor measures reaction forces and friction in the contact point. You can animate your mechanism during or immediately following a simulation. Using animations and XY graphs inside T-FLEX software you can size motors/actuators, determine power consumption, layout linkages, develop cams, size springs/dampers, and determine how contacting parts behave. Synchronized graphing and animation directly associate force and acceleration values with mechanism positions. T-FLEX Dynamics also calculates loads that can be used to define load cases for structural analyses.
