- PSU (ProzeßSimulation in der Umformtechnik)
utilises modern FE techniques to solve general field problems, in particular
those with geometrical (large deformation, contact) and material
non-linearities. Fields include 1-3D mechanical, thermal, electric, coupled.
It is particularly well-suited to research problems,
both academic and industrial.
