New Release Highlighted by Improved Robustness and Boost in Performance for Nonlinear Modeling and Analysis of Real-Life Models
"This release demonstrates our sustained commitment to being a customer and market driven solutions provider devoted to open standards," said Reza Sadeghi, vice president, solvers development, MSC.Software. "We continue improving MSC.Marc's effectiveness in performing advanced modeling to simulate real-world behavior. The development of automated and high-performance features built upon the open architecture of MSC.Marc enables us to offer versatile solutions that help users minimize design risk and maximize their productivity. We look forward to continuing to deliver significant enhancements that will improve our customers' product development processes."
Recognized as the world's first commercial nonlinear FEA software, MSC.Marc has, since 1971, continually delivered innovative and easy-to-use solutions that address the need for simulating static and dynamic structural, thermal, and other coupled physics problems. This new release continues MSC.Software's customer and market driven strategy to deliver product enhancements in-line with industry demands that improve customers' product development processes. MSC.Marc 2005 r2 has a number of significant enhancements and improvements in capacity and performance aimed at better enabling customers to perform real-world analyses. Some of these enhancements include:
* Substantial improvements in MSC.Marc's ability to efficiently simulate real-life scenarios by accommodating up to a 300% increase in the degrees of freedom (DOF) specified for FEA models running on all supported platforms. The optimization in memory utilization will enable customers to solve larger, more complex problems with greater precision. * Enhancements to speed up contact analyses involving a large number of multi-point constraint equations (deformable contact) and/or kinematic constraint equations (rigid contact) with a reduction of up to 70% in CPU time. * New capability to handle beam and shell offsets, which eases geometric modeling by allowing beams and shells to be conveniently specified at a geometric location other than the actual physical location. * Numerous quality enhancements for existing features that better enable customers to perform real-world analyses.
MSC.Marc 2005 r2 is currently being distributed worldwide. For more information on MSC.Marc, please visit http://marc.mscsoftware.com.
