General Purpose Boundary Element Software Technology (GPBEST) is a complete boundary element engineering analysis system. Using GPBEST gives the engineer several outstanding productivity gains when compared with traditional finite element analysis. The GPBEST model only requires a mesh on the surface of the region, which is a significant advantage. Thus, the boundary element model is much simpler, allowing the engineer to begin the analysis and results-viewing phases much more quickly. The interior mesh is not needed for analysis but for 2-D problems is automatically generated for post-processing purposes.

Key Benefits

Only requires the surface of the model to be meshed, hence design changes are very easy to accommodate
High accuracy stress analysis
Efficiently solve large realistic engineering problems
