Version 9.0

Integrated Engineering Software has released version 9.0 of its simulation software, which includes general enhancements to make accurate modelling easier and faster.

Visualisation tools have had major enhancements including being able to pre-define output/output manager structure for the natural flow of design/simulation process enabling better management of multiple plots. There are faster and more robust geometry operation capabilities in both 2D and 3D programs and an Enhanced Time Modeler to simulate various types of signals and sources in time domain.

Integrated has enhanced the coils/windings feature in its magnetic programs and users can now evaluate the force/torque on bodies due to external static.

For customers using the Tecplot plotting package to generate 2D and 3D plots from raw calculated data, format data export is available. Users who choose to view and manipulate their plots in Tecplot can export plots from Integrated applications to be opened in Tecplot, where they can further manipulate and view the data.

Transient capabilities have been extended to Integrated's 3D programs electrostatic (Coulomb), eddy current (Faraday) and heat transfer (Celsius) solvers. There have been significant improvements made to matrix solvers and pre-conditioners for large, dense or sparse matrices, generated from BEM or FEM.

Lorentz, Integrated's 2D/3D electromagnetic analysis and hybrid simulation software, has been upgraded with a new Graphical User Interface (GUI) and simulation flow. It also has an improved emission model with new combined emission model, enhanced ODE solver and ray-geometric intersection methods. Finally, due for release later in 2010, Chronos is Integrated's powerful new time domain field solver for modelling and simulation of RF and antenna applications.
