ADINA R & D Inc., a part Bentley Systems, team is pleased to announce the availability of ADINA 2023 (23.00.00.306) is powerful finite element software, built to help you solve the most difficult nonlinear problems involving geometric, material, and load nonlinearities; large deformations; and contact conditions.
What’s new in ADINA 2023 (23.00.00.306) – Release Date: September 2023
This release of ADINA adopts a new year-based naming convention that is consistent with industry practice. The previous version of ADINA was Version 9.10 (9.10.00.333). This release is ADINA 2023 (23.00.00.306).
Key updates in this version include:
– Upgrades to internal program components/framework
– Performance improvements for Cat2 contact, especially large models
– Change in Beam Loading to support non-uniform partial length loads and point loads along a beam
– Several minor enhancements and defect corrections.
Civil, structural, and mechanical engineers choose ADINA software for its authoritative veracity, including in analysis of buildings, bridges, stadiums, pressure vessels, dams, and tunnels. By virtue of the ADINA System’s integral robustness across disciplines, materials, and simulation domains (structures, mechanical, fluids, thermal, electromagnetic, and multi-physics), engineers use it to perform comprehensive safety and performance studies where reliability and resilience are of critical importance. With infrastructure digital twins, users can simulate the complete behavior of structures to create confidence in designs that are much safer and more cost-effective than those merely analyzed to meet prescribed code standards. Of particular importance for infrastructure resilience, ADINA will also be applied within digital twins of existing infrastructure assets, now made practical by the Bentley iTwin platform, to simulate their responses and vulnerabilities to stresses so extreme that nonlinear effects must be considered—caused (for instance) by seismic, wind, flood, pressure, thermal, collision, or blast forces. The ADINA System’s nonlinear simulation capabilities will in turn become directly accessible, through convenient technical and commercial integration, to users of Bentley Systems’ uniquely comprehensive modeling and simulation software portfolio for infrastructure engineering. As the ADINA System’s nonlinear extensions are introduced to complement these existing physical simulation applications—currently spanning STAAD, RAM, SACS, MOSES, AutoPIPE, PLAXIS, LEAP, RM, LARS, SPIDA, and PLS—the scope of mainstream simulation underlying the engineering of infrastructure resilience will be valuably enhanced. ADINA’s advantages also include advanced dynamics, 3D solid FEM, buckling, substructuring, and advanced meshing for critical joints and sections.
Recently, Seth Guthrie, Director of Structural Product Management, spoke with Informed Infrastructure podcast host Todd Danielson. Seth shared how leveraging the analytical power of ADINA software can help you perform more flexible analysis of your nonlinear systems.
The development of ADINA was started, and the foundation established, by Dr. K.J. Bathe in 1974. Soon thereafter, in 1975, Dr. K.J. Bathe joined the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In 1986, he founded ADINA R&D, Inc. for fostering the development of the ADINA system. He is a leading world-renowned researcher in the field of finite element analysis who has authored several textbooks and numerous journal papers. Dr. Bathe leads the development of the ADINA system.
Bentley Systems is the infrastructure engineering software company. We provide innovative software to advance the world’s infrastructure – sustaining both the global economy and environment.
Bentley Systems recently announced the acquisition of ADINA R&D, Inc., developer of finite element analysis software applications. The addition of ADINA’s technology to Bentley’s software applications will further strengthen Bentley’s structural software offerings. Users will gain even greater confidence in their structural software designs.
