11th PERMAS Users' Conference in 2012

Excellent presentations in historical ambience

On April 26th and 27th, 2012, the 11th PERMAS Users' Conference took place in Heidelberg (at the historic ballroom of Heidelberg's Convention Centre) with 110 participants from 14 countries. 18 presentations from different fields covered a big part of PERMAS functionalities.

An important part of the conference was dedicated to the new PERMAS Version 14 and the new VisPER Version 3 which will be shipped to the customers soon. Among others major achievements include:

  • A new algorithm for updating contact geometry has been introduced in order take into account larger geometrical modifications during loading. Linear and non-linear analyses with contact may use this updating feature. Examples are moving gears under loading, fitting procedures, or mounting and release of interference fit assemblies. Many other applications can benefit from this feature.
  • The eigenvalue analysis of a very large number of eigenfrequencies is now running much faster due to a new algorithm.
  • Topology optimization results in improved structures by a more robust new algorithm.
  • Run times for bead design have been essentially reduced by a new algorithm.
  • VisPER has been extended in the modelling functions for loads and boundary conditions and in the post-processing of more results.
