Relax II has been developed over many America's Cup campaigns and many complex membrane design projects. It incorporates all we have learned in 20 years of practice.
Relax II is a complete interactive, fully non-linear Finite Element code to analyses fabric structures using a state of the art relaxation method.
Relax II's special sail analysis features make it extremely efficient for modelling the most innovative sailplans. It's unique flexibility enables it to predict the behaviour of almost any large-displacement structure. Unlimited accuracy is attainable due to it's sophisticated meshing controls and it's advanced elasticity models (including the critical anisotropic wrinkling capability) .
Relax II's parametric capability combined with it's goal-seeking and optimisation features make it a powerful tool for inverse design.
Relax II's comprehensive interfacing and flow control tools permit it to be integrated into a wider system for such tasks as aeroelastic analysis, yacht performance or a full multi-user yacht simulator.
