Interactive Software to...

  • Create/edit virtual sensors
  • Find optimum sensor location based on a range of criteria
  • Define success criteria (limits) for online and offline analysis

SIMPLIFIED PRETEST SENSOR PLACEMENT

  • Easily identify where to place sensors for optimum effectiveness – locate sensors where they will measure the best data
  • Maximize efficiency of sensor placement
  • Improved sensor placement results in more effective tests and more robust, safer products
  • Sensor mapping simplifies placement optimization, limit computation and model validation tasks

Interface directly with Ansys, Abaqus & Nastran finite element software

  • Maximize benefit of current finite element software (Abaqus, Ansys, Nastran)
  • Validate finite element model based on strain data or scanning laser vibrometer
  • Import groups directly from Ansys or Abaqus
  • Directly compare test measurements to finite element results
  • Drag-n-drop, grab-n-rotate sensors independent of mesh

Reliable & Repeatable Analysis That Is Easy-To-Use

Simplifies FEM Interaction for Test Prep

  • No node/element output coordinate transformations
  • No “painting” of 2-D elements on finite element surface
  • No need to use node or element results – Account for strain gage size

Limit Definitions That Directly Interface with Other Apex Acquisition and Analysis Products

  • Easily prepare success criteria (limits) in advance of the test
  • Define real time monitoring and analysis limits and success criteria that interface to other APEX products for a seamless, efficient process
  • Exported limits file includes output frequencies, limits and ratios consistent with the current fatigue assessment settings
  • Easily compare measured results to pretest predictions

GageMap is the ONLY Commercially Available Product That Can Do ALL Of This:

  • Perform High Cycle Fatigue (HCF) analysis based on test data
  • Optionally compute surface strains/stresses over the entire FE model by enforcing plane stress
  • Extract strains and displacements for direct comparison to experimental results
  • Automatically create detailed sensor reports
  • Supports cyclic symmetry
  • Supports anisotropic material properties
  • Supports non-linear geometry
