Simulation of physical processes

APM Multiphysics is software for automated calculation and design of structures that allows user to solve various multiphysical tasks.

APM Multiphysics is based on the APM WinMachine software. At the same time, the software implements the necessary interrelations that allow you to perform complex calculations for fluid and gas flows, electromagnetic fields, and electrical circuits.

APM Multiphysics includes all additional calculation options:

  • Composite: calculation of structures made of composite materials;
  • Fracture: design calculation with crack analysis;
  • Fatigue: fatigue analysis, calculation using random loads;
  • Pipe: using special finite element for pipeline calculations;
  • TopOpt: topological optimization of structures.

APM Multiphysics contains several modules that are divided into five groups:

  • Graphic tools (2D and 3D preprocessor for preparing geometry for calculations);
  • Machine parts and connections (calculations of standard machine parts, mechanisms, as well as their connections);
  • Machine parts and connections (calculations of standard machine parts, mechanisms, as well as their connections);
  • Finite element analysis (analysis of strength, stability, modal, dynamics);
  • Simulation of physical processes (analysis of the flow of liquids and gases, the calculation of electromagnetic fields, the calculation of electrical circuits);
  • Databases.

User guides are presented as separate documents for each module:

  • APM Structure3D — module for calculating the stress-strain state, stability, dynamics of parts and structures by the finite element method;
  • APM Studio — pre- and post-processor for creating models for strength (finite-element) analysis with the ability to import STEP files;
  • APM Joint — module for calculating and designing connections for machine elements;
  • APM Trans — module for calculating and designing mechanical rotation gears;
  • APM Shaft — a module for calculating and designing shafts and axles;
  • APM Bear — a module for calculating and designing bearing units with regard to their accuracy class;
  • APM Drive — a module for calculating and designing bearing;
  • APM Spring — the module for calculating and designing the elastic elements of machines;
  • APM Cam — CAM calculation and design module;
  • APM Plain — module for calculating and designing plain bearings;
  • APM Screw — module for calculating screw gears;
  • APM Dynamics — module of the kinematic analysis of lever mechanisms;
  • APM Graph — a 2D parametric drawing and graphics editor;
  • APM Base — a module for creating and editing databases.
