Version 4.2

  • PDF

The version 4.2 is the "official" version for which all programs are available. In the abstract the capabilities of the program system are described in more detail.

The version 4.2 is scheduled to be replaced by the version 4.3 in the course of the year

Version 4.3

  • PDF

In addition to the capabilities of version 4.2, version 4.3 considers the influence of prestressing due to dead load or centrifugal forces. So far only the main part of MADYN, STATIK and DHARM are completed. Nevertheless, the version 4.3 is fully compatible with version 4.2, so you can use the „old“ version for all other calculations.

Version 5.0 beta

  • PDF

Version 5.0 also has plates and solid elements. Thus MADYN becomes a general FE program. So far only the main part of MADYN, STATIK and DHARM exist. The completion of the other programs is in progress. If no plates or volume elements occur in a model, old and new versions can be used together.

For data processing one should use a pre-and post-processor, e.g. I-deas. A modeling by hand is possible in principle, but only useful for small or very simply structured models.

Foundations and housings can be modeled much more accurately in version 5.0 than with version 4. Because even the gyroscopic effects and the centrifugal forces of plates and solid elements are considered, bladed discs or the blades themselves can be captured in much more detail now.
