Romax Nexus R20

Make Smarter Decisions Faster: Announcing Romax Nexus R20

Date: , 09:00 & 16:00 BST

Presented by: Dr Jamie Pears, Head of Product Management, Romax Technology

Join this webinar to find out about all the new features available in the latest release of our Romax Nexus suite of products. The result of close working with our customers and partners, combined with our own technological innovations, new features include:


  • Enhanced bearing stiffness model – for more accurate and consistent results.
  • Improvements to vehicle simulation – for ease of use and comparison of a wider variety of designs.
  • Enhancements to usability, reporting and gear design.


  • Gear root stress improvements – calculation of virtual strain gauges in the normal as well as the transverse plane, for easier comparison with experiment.
  • Improvements to parametric study and batch running – additional variables, actions and results, mostly related to gears and gear root stress analysis.


  • Subsurface stress of roller bearings – unique, fast, validated capability to perform roller bearing subsurface stress analysis, to assist in determining suitable case hardening treatments.


  • Proprietary advanced bearing drag model – to account for all bearing details, operating conditions due to misalignment and load, and detailed lubricant traction properties.
  • ISO/TR 22849:2011(E) – to predict bevel/hypoid gear efficiency based on tooth profile, sliding and churning.
  • Changenet oil churning models (2007 and 2011) – widely used in the automotive industry, to provide accurate churning losses.


  • Improvements to acoustic analysis – improved user experience, ability to view shrinkwrap mesh before running full acoustic solve, and tighter integration with FFT Actran for superior simulation efficiency.
  • Mean Square Velocity – automate the calculation and output of mean square velocity results via batch running and parametric study.


  • New electromagnetic interfaces to JMAG and Ansys Maxwell – for increased integration opportunities.
  • Analytical electric machine excitations – estimate electric machine excitations for fast initial indication of response amplitude.


  • Generic connection databases and management – to ease the modelling of complex shaft arrangements, with automatic detection of connection locations and easy management via a database system.
  • Nachi-Fujikoshi bearing catalog
  • CAD import reference geometry – import reference geometry directly from CAD for effective visualisation and communication
  • Significant improvements to speed and performance – allowing models containing large FE components to be opened more quickly
  • Improvements to parametric study and batch running – new results and variables available.
