VMAP SC legalisation

Since the VMAP project terminated in October 2020 we have been working hard on legal aspects to create a legal association VMAP Standard Community e.V.
This work has taken longer than expected and we now await the conclusion of some legal aspects that are out of our control. Fo rthis reason the creation meeting has been postponed again.
Once this has been completed and the VMAP SC e.V. is registered will we be in a position to invite you to become a member (a small payment will be required). We can then continue with our actvities within the association.
This is not to say that we have stopped technicaly. Improvements have been made and the version 1.0 has been made available to those external user cases who have signed an user agreement. The VMAP 1.0 specification documents can be found on the “VMAP Release” webpage.

Interoperability of TRANSWELD® with CAE software using VMAP

Transvalor carried out a case study with Faurecia Automotive Seating, who assembles lightweight components by laser welding for the manufacture of automotive seats.

This study illustrates the potential gains associated with the new VMAP exchange format, including the simplification of operations chaining between “process” simulation and “crash” simulation. In the end, the standard VMAP exchange format is intended to be more efficient because it is more compact and very well documented, with the ultimate guarantee of strong interoperability for a wide range of CAE software.
