Converse by PART Engineering

Multiscale Simulation Software for Plastics

Converse is an easy-to-use software that bridges the gap between injection molding simulation and mechanical simulation. Converse has a variety of mapping capabilities including but not restricted to fiber orientation, weldlines, pressures, temperatures, thickness, and stresses. It exports the data in a ready-to-use FE input deck for the particularly supported solver and for the built-in material model of that solver.

Why Converse?

Easy-to-use and See Through

Open data handling requires no user subroutine. The fast and stable simulation provides high scalability through multi-processor capability.

Consider Manufacturing Influences

The influence of gate positions onto the mechanical behavior of the part are considered.

Achieves Higher Accuracy

More accurate simulation of part stiffness and strength assessment compared to isotropic approaches (fiber reinforcement) are offered.

Key Features

Mapping Between Different Mesh Topologies

Mapping of fiber orientations, weld lines, pressures, temperatures, residual stresses, shrinkage, warpage, and wall thicknesses for shell elements.
