the CAE Software product RecurDyn/Professional consists of three modules as the prior basic platform:
Modeler, Solver, ProcessNet
RecurDyn/Professional can test various conditions which are difficult to repeat. Also, it can find problems by thetheoretical background to the defect of product and can solve it.
RecurDyn/Modeler is a pre-processor to create an analysis model. The user can easily use it because of developing by the familiar user interface (UI) for the Windows user. Also, the user can begin to create a model using RecurDyn/Modeler by basic elements such as bodies, joints, forces, and contacts. If the user has the existed CAD file, the user can import files such as the Parasolid format, the STEP format, the IGES format, the ACIS format, and the CATIA format. Also, the extension of CAD interface is excellent because of using Parasolid Kernel.
Creating equipment models, Defining equipment elements, showing the animation of calculation result or Marking the plot of calculation result.
Interface with general CAD Software Tools
- Parasolid (.x_t, .x_b, .xmt_txt, .xmt_bin)
- STEP (.step, .stp) (Paid option)
- ACIS (.sat) (Paid option)
- IGES (.igs) (Paid option)
RecurDyn/Solver performs the more fast analysis by the optimized integrator after constructing the equation of motion to perform the analysis of multi flexible body dynamics which is to mix multi bodies with flexible bodies. Also, RecurDyn performs many more analyses in the short time because the solution of RecurDyn is faster than another MBD solution. And it provides
the solver which can solve flexible bodies and can perform the control of system and the optimization of system. So, the user can concentrate not only performing the analysis of system but also designing to improve the product performance.
Therefore, the user can improve the productivity because of concentrating to develop products. RecurDyn/solver is more efficient to the problems of complex contact and the problems of fast velocity because of not only more fast but also more stable.
- Pre Analysis
- Static Analysis
- Dynamic Analysis
- Using the recursive formula by the relative coordinate
- DASSL / Implicit G-Alpha /Track G-Alpha integrators
RecurDyn/ProcessNet is a macro function of RecurDyn. Although the general macro
concept is the automation of repeated works, RecurDyn/ProcessNet is similar to
API (Application Programming Interface) because of automatically creating the
desired functions and models in RecurDyn and providing the function which is
connected with different programs such as Excel, etc. Also, although the user
should learn each language grammar in the macro of different programs, the user
who is familiar to C, C++, C#, Visual Basic Application (VBA) can directly use
it in the work because RecurDyn/ProcessNet is used in the Visual Studio
environment and the language grammar of VB.Net. Functions of RecurDyn/ProcessNet
are applied in the pre-processor and the post-processor and the user can
automatize models from the automation of creation to the writing the analysis
report with the user's purpose by it.
Features of RecurDyn Professional
Contact of RecurDyn is three types: General Contact, Analytical Contact, Toolkit Contact.
The General Contact is used by the natural CAD shape without the limit of contact shapes.
The Analytical Contact is used when the limited contact shape is analyzed fast. The
Contact of toolkit is the optimized contact function by each toolkit.
RecurDyn can model to separate subsystems from complex systems and can analyze each subsystem. The user can create a main subsystem by several subsystems because of supporting the modeling and analysis to the main system and each subsystem in the model.
Supporting Sensor Dynamic models are focused on the analysis for contacts after connecting with bodies. Although the measuring elements exist in the real experiment, their expressions are limited in the analysis model. So, RecurDyn basically provides Sensor elements to solve the problem. The user created Sensors by expressions or user subroutines, but the user can simply define them by the icon and directly check the result.
