Roccor structures enabled by SwiftComp

AnalySwift, a provider of efficient high-fidelity modelling software for composites based in West Jordan, Utah, has licensed its SwiftComp package to deployable structures firm Roccor.

Based in Longmont, Colorado, Roccor’s focus is on systems exploiting elastically stowed and deployed fibre reinforced polymer composite structural elements. Its competitive advantage includes novel designs addressing the limitations, both in performance and cost that have previously plagued these systems.

“We are pleased to work with Roccor as it pushes the envelope in its work providing low-cost, high performance deployable structure systems,” said Allan Wood, president and CEO of AnalySwift. “We believe SwiftComp provides a unique solution as a general-purpose multi-scale modelling code that enables users to model composites as quickly and easily as metals, without losing accuracy. It can be used either independently as a tool for virtual testing of composites or as a plugin to power conventional 3D finite element analysis (FEA) codes with high-fidelity modeling for composites.”

“Roccor has found SwiftComp’s multi-scale and multi-physics mechanics software to be the most comprehensive solution available,” said Tom Murphey, chief technologist, space programs for Roccor. “While most codes are specific to a single type of analysis, SwiftComp provides equal support for both elastic and thermal properties. Similarly, most codes stop at the laminate level while SwiftComp scales to provide effective beam and plate properties generated from complex cross-sections. These features, along with tight FEA code integration, have allowed Roccor to develop easy and computationally efficient workflows to solve challenging engineering problems.”

AnalySwift recently licensed the SwiftComp technology through the Purdue Research Foundation Office of Technology Commercialization.
