AnalySwift, LLC, which provides modeling software for composites and other advanced materials, says that North Thin Ply Technologies (NTPT) has licensed its VABS software for simulation of composite golf club shafts and other tubes for use in aerospace, industrial and sports applications.

NTPT has licensed the VABS beam modeling software initially for simulation of the company’s line of composite golf club shafts, TPT Golf, as well as other tubes, including those used for sport and industrial applications.  Other potential applications include automotive drive shafts, aircraft struts, landing gear, and windsurf masts.

‘VABS provides a uniquely rigorous solution as a general-purpose cross-sectional analysis tool for quickly computing beam sectional properties and recovering 3D fields of slender composite structures,’ said Allan Wood, president and CEO of AnalySwift. ‘This includes not only composite tubes, but also composite helicopter and wind turbine rotor blades, as well as other slender composite parts, such as fishing rods, landing gear, propellers and high-aspect ratio wings.’
