VCollab helps the manufacturing industry to accelerate the processing of simulation results and streamline the design decision making process based on actionable simulation insights.
By automating the process of extracting, merging, and reporting simulation insights in 3D, high-fidelity, browser-viewable models, VCollab extends access to critical simulation insights for everyone involved in the design and manufacturing process. The software enables the automatic creation of "Digital CAE Reports" from native simulation results files. These high-fidelity, actionable simulation insight reports can easily be shared with designers and other stakeholders to inform the design decision making process.
VCollab helps manufacturing companies to maximize the returns on their simulation investments:
- Accelerates the post-processing of results
- Reduces human error during post-processing and creating CAE Reports
- Enables manufacturers to improve product quality
- Streamlines the design decision making process
- Helps companies digitally transform CAE reporting processes for greater efficiency
With VCollab, analysts spend minutes instead of hours and create far superior simulation insights. Global analysis teams can collaborate on Digital CAE Reports to review and validate the analysis models and results from multiple CAE software packages. Design teams, OEMs and suppliers can collaborate on reports that tell the full story and help them to make faster design decisions, reducing product costs and timelines. And CIOs pursuing digital transformation strategies can use the tool to maximize return on CAE investments.

The main product from Karpel Dynamics Consulting (KDC), DynResp, performs closed loop, nonlinear response and stability analysis of structural systems. This is used for exploring nonlinear effects of closed loop control systems on the dynamic response with aerodynamics. The DynLoads product then takes resultants and delivers dynamic loads for key response points for use in the design of the structures and control systems.
The DynResp simulation models contain multiple physics, but typically are comprised of linear structures and unsteady aerodynamics with nonlinear damping, nonlinear controllers and locally nonlinear effects (like tires, free-play, etc). The product contains general linear control design and native simple nonlinear controllers, but also allows easy integration from MatLab/SimuLink.
- Study response to gust, manoeuvre -commands, and direct-force excitations
- Import modal structural data from finite-element codes (MSC Nastran, etc.)
- Incorporate unsteady aerodynamics from panel-based or linearized-CFD codes (e.g., MSC Nastran)
- General control architecture
- Accommodation of structural, aerodynamic and control nonlinearities
- Increased-order modelling (IOM) with common frequency-domain baseline models, then adding nonlinearities
- 1P and gyroscopic engine effects
- Frequency-domain linear baseline solutions
- Time-domain solutions for non-linear effects
- Static trim solutions for preliminary design
- Monitoring stations and load distributions for structural design
What are the key features and benefits?
DynResp has a unique strength in nonlinear, multi-disciplinary response analysis and in performing analyses on closed loop systems. Careful handling of the linear and nonlinear parts of the problem allow the solution to be very fast. In addition, DynResp supports user functions which enable an analyst to embed their own physics (typically CFD or control systems) into the problem.
What problems does the solution address?
In the design of complex systems, the dynamic loads and stability margins often drive important design criteria in the preliminary design phase. DynResp allows a complete exploration of the critical dynamic loads environment with a special focus on closed loop systems.
DynResp is uniquely capable to explore the effects of the often-overlooked nonlinear effects like free play, control lags, control saturation and so on, to quickly identify design limits, ensure safe operation and ensure a robust design.
Why use DynResp and DynLoad?
- Multi-physics modelling with Nastran and/or Adams and/or Cradle as elements of the multi-physics modelling.
- Adds a key missing component (nonlinear, closed-loop) in loads and stability margins for existing MSC customers in Aero and Auto.
"Our customers use DynResp to enable their engineering organization to easily and quickly exploit the coupled effects of structures, aerodynamics and control systems in the design of their flight vehicles. Our customers save time and then produce lighter, better performing vehicles." Moti Karpel, CEO of Karpel Dynamic Consulting
