Fibersim 2012 from Siemens PLM Software provides risk-reducing solutions for industries employing composites engineering. The software was developed by Vistagy, which was acquired by Siemens and is now one of its business units. Fibersim reduces uncertainty in the performance of composite parts by defining, communicating, and validating desired fiber orientations throughout the product development process, ensuring that they meet specification. By eliminating design interpretation errors, the release significantly reduces the risk of producing over-engineered parts that not only behave unpredictably but are also heavier and more costly than necessary. Specific benefits of the software include increasing opportunities for optimizing designs, accurately simulating how composite materials conform to complex shapes, efficiently communicating a complete part definition between design and analysis, and simplifying composite part development and documentation.
