AFT uses FEA structural analysis for modeling auxetic fabric solutions. This allows AFT to provide comprehensive stress/strain analysis with 3D modeling, finite element analysis, hydro non-linear implicit analysis, and pre- and post-processing for model convergence.
AFT provides engineering solutions for various applications, but increasingly our focus has been on projects that also provide manufacturing opportunities for comprehensive solutions for our customers.
AFT utilizes the following software:
