Video Synchronization and tracking:

µETA allows the user to match the test video and the animation from the model to compare the CAE analysis and test data. This tool can be applied in many areas. For example, a Crash video from the test can be compared with that of the CAE model to get an estimate of correlation. The user can also track a point on the video and plot the results on a 2D plot from the same window.

Camera Tool:

µETA offers a Camera tool where the user can place a Camera at a desired location and observe the animation/stresses closely. This tool can be used very well in the problems containing large deformations. For example, in the event of a frontal crash, the camera can be placed in the area of crush and observe the deformed parts which would otherwise be difficult. The Camera can be placed at a particular point/node. The camera position and the camera "look at" point can be locked so that the camera moves along with the model to get a steady animation. The Camera tool can be applied in parallel and perspective views. This Camera tool also has a Multi Lock feature with which Camera can be placed at a specific pitch and yaw and orient it to look at the area of deformation.

Part and Multi model statistics:

Two tools are available within µETA for detailed recording statistics for models. Part statistics includes detailed information regarding the selected model and the current state. The user can filter and focus on specific PIDs which, for example, may have a high stress/strain. Multi model state statistics is a table displaying information on Maximum and Minimum values of results at All entities (Parts, Nodes, Elements and Groups) level, for every state, every cycle (in case of Design Optimization results) and for every available model.
Both recording tables comprise comprehensive, completely configurable, spreadsheets, for all available results of models, offering the option to save data in HTML and csv format. Moreover, Statistics table can be synchronized with the States for automatically updating values according to the current state.

Report Composer:

µETA offers a Report Composer tool to facilitate fast and effortless communication of results across departments. Reports are readily generated based on interactively built templates. The report can be generated in either HTML or PPTX format and the composer supports texts, tables, images, embedded objects and links. The concept of the Report Composer is to create the templates once and then set up the report interactively. Once this is accomplished then the user can save the created session file and run this session every time a report needs to be created.

Section Forces Tool:

Section Forces tool is intended for the display and calculation of grid point forces / moments and their resultants for NASTRAN, ABAQUS, LS-DYNA and PAMCRASH. The user has to request the appropriate output while running the model. Refer to the user manual for the appropriate output requests. The user can then cut a section and calculate the forces/moments flowing thru the sections. Once calculated, these forces along with the model can be output into a NASTRAN deck to be input into a pre-processor for use in sub-structuring.
