Training to Empower Your Teams

Superelements automate the process of creating reduced representations of components with significantly fewer degrees of freedom and can efficiently assemble them into a system model. Superelements can be especially beneficial when:

  • An assembly of all component models representing a system is too large
  • Some component models are proprietary
  • Design studies will be performed where most of the system remains unchanged
  • Nonlinearities in a system can be isolated to a small region
  • Models for a system do not follow unique numbering schemes

Top-Level Overview Whitepaper - describes the different types of superelements along with further considerations.

Theory and Implementation Whitepaper - provides a background on superelements and describes workflows for the three primary ways of creating and using superelements.
