BEASY will be again attending the Aircraft Airworthiness & Sustainability Conference where we will be presenting our fracture mechanics & corrosion risk assessment simulation software and services for aerospace structures. The conference will be held in Washington DC from April 22-26, 2019. In addition to presenting BEASYs comprehensive capabilities for crack growth assessment and simulation BEASY will be presenting new tools and technologies.
We welcome you to come and visit us to find out more about the capabilities of BEASY simulation products, or how BEASY modelling services can provide the solutions you need. Alternatively to make an appointment to meet Tom Curtin (Booth 303) at the conference, or to obtain further information, please contact us.

NEW PRODUCTS & SERVICES TO BE PRESENTED AT AA&S 2019
BEASY Model Cutting Tool
The BEASY model cutting tool is an "add on" feature to further simplify the creation of BEASY fracture and crack growth simulation models from FEM models such as NASTRAN, ABAQUS, ANSYS, PATRAN etc
BEASY Fracture Assessment Tool
BEASY Fracture Assessment Tool (BEASY FASST) can be used to quickly assess the impact of a crack on the structural integrity of a structure. The tool can be used with FEM or BEASY models to predict how stress the intensity factor (SIF) varies with crack size for a crack located at any position on the model. This can be used as a fast assessment tool before a full scale simulation is performed.
BEASY POLCURVEX software is used by design engineers to quickly assess the corrosion risk of material combinations exposed to aqueous environments.

BEASY Polarisation & Corrosion Rate Prediction
BEASY POLCURVEX software is used by design engineers to quickly assess the corrosion risk of material combinations exposed to aqueous environments. Galvanic corrosion is one of the primary, and most costly, corrosion mechanisms observed when different metals and finishes are coupled. BEASY POLCURVEX provides a more accurate, laboratory validated, method to predict corrosion rates based on the identification of crossing points for material polarization curves.
Galvanic corrosion is commonly assessed by comparing differences in metal potential (e.g. galvanic series in seawater table) with higher corrosion risk being associated with larger differences in metal potential. However recent research results obtained during development of the revised military standard, MIL-STD-889C suggests that potential differences do not fully account for the corrosion kinetics and can lead to wrong material compatibility decisions.
Given the high cost of corrosion maintenance many companies are searching for corrosion modeling tools to support the paradigm shift from “Find & Fix” to “Predict & Prevent/Manage”. The BEASY POLCURVEX software provides critical information to designers, focused on metal compatibility and coating performance of new designs and retrofits and maintenance engineers concerned with scheduling inspections to look for corrosion.
