If you need e.g. to analyse structural stress and/or deformations
of a large surface model (using 2D shell mesh) , e.g. like a hull
structure of a ship. Then Catia V5 is extremely fast and efficient.
Linear analysis. Much more productive than ANSYS. Not even speaking
about recycles (=geometry change, automatically remesh, etc). Very
large models (100.000 elements can be handled).
