Autodesk Helius PFA – Progressive failure analysis simulation tool

Gain deeper insights into virtual prototyping with Helius PFA, progressive failure analysis software that predicts failure stages of composite materials. Helius PFA enables you to integrate composite and elastomeric material properties into your finite element analysis (FEA) program.

Helius PFA features

Import Moldflow results
Transfer as-manufactured data for more accurate simulation

Material nonlinearity and progressive failure
Analyze the progression of composite failure

Direct FEA integration
Enhance existing Abaqus, ANSYS, or NASTRAN FEA

Multiple analysis types
Perform static, explicit, and fatigue analyses.

Advanced composite analysis
Simulate 3D weld line, compression response, progressive failure, delamination, and other analyses.

Easier material exchange
Interface with Moldflow and Inventor Nastran software, as well as third-party FEA systems.
