AnalySwift LLC has received a grant from NASA to be used to further develop its SwiftComp software, a technology that provides efficient, high-fidelity modeling of deployable structures made of high-strain composites.

AnalySwift LLC, a Purdue University-affiliated commercial software provider, has received a $125,000 Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) grant from NASA to help further develop its SwiftComp software.

The technology was developed by Wenbin Yu, a professor of aeronautics and astronautics in Purdue’s College of Engineering. The company licensed the technology from the Purdue Research Foundation Office of Technology Commercialization.

Allan Wood, president, and CEO of AnalySwift, explained, “SwiftComp takes details of the fundamental building block of materials and structures as input, then outputs the structural properties needed for macroscopic analysis. It can be used for composite beams, plates, and shells, and 3D structures, for both micromechanical and structural modeling.”
