Computational Mechanics has released an enhanced solver for it's BEASY Corrosion and Cathodic Protection software. The new software, which is used in a wide range of applications to predict the impact of corrosion and the performance of Cathodic Protection Systems, delivers improvements up to 21 times faster than it's predecessor.
The new solver is based on research carried out within the HiPSID project, which was partly funded by the European Union ESPRIT Programme. All applications benefit from the new technology that exploits both single and multiple processor computers to achieve major increases in performance. BEASY Corrosion and Cathodic Protection software is widely used in the marine, defence and oil and gas industries to ensure that ships, boats and structures are adequately protected against corrosion. A corrosion engineer can build on a computer a model of a ship including the location of anodes and predict how well the ship will be protected. Design changes can be investigated within the computer model to achieve the optimum design and hence the optimum life for the ship before inspections.
