MultiMechanics announces new partnership with Dassault Systèmes

The partnership will connect MultiMechanics to a massive global user base of engineers.

MultiMechanics, an Omaha-based advanced materials engineering software company, has announced a new partnership with one of the largest companies in their industry, France-based Dassault Systèmes.

The partnership will integrate MultiMech tools with the Dassault Systèmes platform, SIMULIA Abaqus, and provide a new user base for MultiMechanics. Abaqus users will now have the ability to use MultiMechanics’ material analysis tools. Dassault Systèmes touts a customer base of 190,000 in 140 countries.

Integration with Abaqus was one of the most requested features among users and prospects.

“We are very excited to work with Dassault Systèmes,” says Dr. Flavio Souza, Co-Founder of MultiMechanics. “Combining the power of Abaqus with MultiMechanics’ ability to accurately predict composite material behavior is truly a win-win for design engineers in all industries working with innovative materials. This is the first integration of its kind. It’s a very exciting development for the composite engineering community.”

MultiMechanics’ core product MultiMech uses virtual simulations to predict complex failure in objects made with advanced materials, such as carbon composites used in aviation, the auto industry and other industrial technologies. There’s a major shift underway from manufacturing heavy steel parts to using lightweight carbon fiber composites. MultiMech allows engineers to test these new components virtually.

Leandro Castro, MultiMechanics Co-Founder, recently attended the Dassault Systèmes regional user meeting in Detroit and spoke to an audience of 600 automotive engineers.

“We got a lot of traction from that talk. We had a booth there and completely ran out of brochures and business cards after the presentation. That never happened before,” said Castro.
