MSC.Software Announces MD Adams

Expanded Functionality With MD Nastran R2 Integration Enables Mechatronics Analyses for the Enterprise

SANTA ANA, Calif., March 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- MSC.Software Corp. (NASDAQ: MSCS), the leading global provider of enterprise simulation solutions and services, today announced the release of MD Adams, a new addition to its MD Solutions suite which adds integrated multi-body dynamics, structural, and controls systems simulation capabilities. MD Adams enables powerful extensions to system simulation including component flexibility, active control systems, and frequency response prediction. Such high fidelity simulation capabilities result in fewer physical prototypes and faster design cycles thereby enabling time to market and right to market.

The advanced functionality incorporated into MD Adams includes tight integration with MD Nastran for NVH and durability analyses as well as a module for the treatment of mechatronic subsystems. Through integration with MD Nastran, validated MD Adams vehicle models can be easily exposed in MD Nastran for use in detailed NVH analyses. Automotive OEMs and suppliers receive additional value through the new MD Adams/Car Mechatronics module. With new control system components, a signal manager, and an easy to use graphical interface, MD Adams/Car Mechatronics facilitates the incorporation and management of active control systems in complex mechanical systems like an automobile.

"MD Adams is another step in MSC.Software's commitment to enterprise simulation solutions," said Reza Sadeghi, senior vice president and chief technology officer, MSC.Software. "The integrated multi-body structural simulation that it provides eliminates multiple steps of pre and post processing, providing substantial time and financial savings for manufacturers."

The MD Adams package includes the full set of Adams extension modules including Adams/Controls, Adams/Durability, Adams/Flex, Adams/Vibration, and more. The MD Adams/Car package includes the following modules for vehicle design and analysis: Adams/Car, Adams/Car Ride, Adams/Chassis, Adams/Driveline, Adams/SmartDriver, Adams/Tire, and Adams/3D Road.
