Suite for the design, analysis, verification and optimization of any driveline and mechanical power reducers/multipliers
MASTA is a suite for the complete design, analysis and optimisation of mechanical transmissions, encompassing numerous advancing forms of analysis from static deflection to component fatigue and NVH.
MASTA integrates seamlessly into any phase of the product development cycle. Suitable for tasks ranging from rapid initial feasibility analysis and preliminary design to in-depth analysis of system performance or individual components. MASTA incorporates a wide range of modelling and analysis methodologies which facilitate investigation into numerous issues relevant to transmission design.
- Component ratings to various international standards considering both static and fatigue
- Advanced full system deflection analysis
- Gear macro and micro geometry development, along with the simulation of the gear manufacturing process
- Loaded Tooth Contact Analysis (LTCA) to investigate gear contact and transmission error
- NVH simulation and optimisation including sidebands generated due to modulation
Critical components such as housings or asymmetric shafts can be incorporated as FE models, facilitating a high-fidelity calculation of system stiffness and performance. Users can generate FE components externally to the software, generate FE within MASTA itself or directly transfer CAD geometry to MASTA for near instant conversion to an applicable FE format.
MASTA’s interface and workflow are simple and intuitive. Transmission construction and analysis is carried out on a single model and all within software environment, with a consistent layout to minimise the learning curve for new users.
Compatible with Windows 10, MASTA is highly adaptable to different hardware configurations. Modelling and analysis is performed utilising methods which minimise time requirements but maintain high fidelity results accuracy. Non-essential detail can easily be stripped from a model to facilitate smooth performance on all hardware configurations whilst maintaining identical numerical results.
MASTA is a product of SMT – Smart Manufacturing Technology Ltd.
