Modules & Specifications
CCC is available for Windows 32 and 64-bit machines.
Cross Section Editor: The Cross Section Editor is used to design, calculate and optimize Thin Walled Cross-Sections for best crash performances. A number of edit tools are available which will enable the user to easily modify the geometry of a cross section. This software provides Design Recommendations which help the user to achieve best crash performance of the designed cross section. Results of calculations for a cross section are grouped in 6 categories: Axial Crushing, Design Recommendations, Bending, Elastic Properties, Torsion, Lateral Response, Denting
Material Editor: CCC gives the possibility of detailed definition of Material assigned to segments of the designed cross section. The Material is described by five groups of data; 1) Material Constraints, 2) Stress Strain Characteristic, 3) Strain Rate Characteristic, 4) Cross Section Optimizer, 5) Compare Cross Sections tool
Cross Section Optimizer: Provides the possibility to automatically optimize Cross Sections. Based on the genetic algorithm, and the calculation algorithms of the CCC Cross Section Editor.
Cross Section, Material and Characteristic Repository: Enables the user to create a personal Cross Section, Material and Characteristic library which can be used, saved and enlarged in any new Solution.
Cross Section Comparison tool: Provides an easy to read diagram illustrating the results of selected cross sections.
Results Report: Tool for automatic creation of an overall results report of number of cross sections in xml format
All modules of Crash Cad Calculate are included in the APA version.
In addition to CCC, Impact Design also has included their software Cross Section Creator in the APA. Learn More
