This interface reads the model from an I-DEAS Universal File:

  • all common element types
  • axisymmetric models
  • all kind of loading including inertia loads
  • many linear kinematic constraints like 'rigid element' and 'coupled dofs'
  • laminate material
  • sets
  • specifications of substructures
  • variant definitions

The interface supports the following analysis types:

  • linear and nonlinear statics
  • contact analysis
  • dynamic mode analysis
  • thermal analysis

Even for acoustic and electromagnetic analyses the models can be prepared in I-DEAS.

The PERMAS command control can be made within I-DEAS. All necessary menus are available and may be adapted by the user to his needs. So, no exit of I-DEAS is necessary to perform a PERMAS run.
