Getting started

IMPETUS Solver is a system for non-linear explicit simulations. The system is made up of different software components, data libraries and documentation.

Verifier documentation

Each released version of IMPETUS Solver’s computational modules is subjected to version control based on a benchmark database.

The benchmark database contains verification tests, validation tests and tests subjected to version control only. Tests in the benchmark database are organised and run with an internal software called the Verifier. Tests are associated with targets, which are automatically checked by the Verifier. Documentation generated from the Verifier is presented below and is updated in conjunction with official releases of the software.

User material models

IMPETUS Afea Solver comes with support for user defined material models. For information about how it works, please check the documentation below:

Our engineers will help you select and calibrate appropriate project simulations to best determine whether Impetus Solver is the best fit for your needs.
