Concept Analyst is quick; Concept Analyst Reanalyses are quicker. Repeated analyses are quicker than individual analyses because of the efficient exploitation of the Boundary Element Method it uses to solve the numerical model.

Renalysis - near real-time results as you change the design geometry

Reanalysis is the name given to an analysis that shares features common to a previous initial analysis, or (more technically) where subsequent analyses are meshed with many elements common to the initial analysis. Information can be reused to accelerate the computation.

The concept of reanalysis coupled with the efficient numerical algorithms in Concept Analyst results in near real-time update of results contours as the geometry is changed.

This is where the Boundary Element Method comes into its own - it would be very challenging to do this with Finite Element models. See the Technical information page for more details.
Reanalysis in Concept Analyst is easy. Run an initial analysis and view a contour plot of your results.

Then with the results contours still on-screen, many of the commands you would use to create and modify geometry will initiate a re-analysis.

Reanalysis in Concept Analyst supports creating and moving holes, resizing holes and fillet radii, and moving geometric points, lines and internal features.
