Navgathi, India distributor of TechPassion Inc, USA today announced the sales of VMAP software version 4.5 to mechanical engineering division of CUSAT.
VMAP version 4.5, is an experimental modal analysis & FEA test correlation software developed by TechPassion Inc. VMAP bridges the gap between virtual prototyping and physical testing and experimentation in the product design cycle. It is used by customers to perform vibration testing and correlation of simulation and experimental results. VMAP significantly improves productivity of product design teams by not only cutting costs and development time but also intangibles associated with inaccuracies in design.
VMAP is developed with the aim to identify the failure modes in prototype quickly and reduce the product development cycle. “This software helps to test product durability in prototype stage and enable the students to gain confidence in FEA models” said Dhanushkodi, Managing Director of TechPassion.
Benefits of VMAP:
§ Addresses the needs of both beginners and expert users.
§ Calculates damping, resonant frequencies, MAC (Modal Assurance criteria) and other parameters with just a few mouse clicks.
§ Programming interface to develop curve fitting algorithms, update finite element simulation models with the damping estimates obtained from VMAP and analyze the updated simulation models.
§ Identify the failure modes in prototypes quickly and reduce product development cycles.
§ VMAP is available as a plug-in within Hyper Mesh.
Biju N, Principal Investigator at Mechanical Engineering Department (CUSAT) said, “We chose VMAP after lot of deliberations and comparison with other offerings in the market.”
Navgathi, as the distributor of TechPassion, plans to introduce the VMAP software 4.5 version in all the educational institutions in India. VMAP is a comprehensive software tool for vibration testing on real-world engineering systems that seamlessly connects virtual simulation and physical testing. We want the students of respective discipline to utilize the software be equipped for real world engineering application.
