Jerad Stack, Firehole's CEO added "We are eager to move this partnership forward and provide NEi Nastran users access to results that are more accurate and realistic than classic composite theory.
The core product NEi Nastran is a powerful, industry-proven Finite Element Analysis (FEA) solver that works with a wide portfolio of pre and post processors including Femap[R] by Siemens PLM Software, in-house brands NEi Fusion and NEi Works for SolidWorks, and other major industry brands.
Triple Eight Race Engineering, the engineering genius behind the 888 BF Falcon, used MD Nastran to run complex simulations for dynamics and aeroelasticity for the redesign and fine-tuning of race vehicles under different scenarios.
Nastran analysis efficiency -- Femap Version 9 supports the direct reading of results from the Nastran(R) XDB file as well as the recently announced NX Nastran Version 3.
Noran Engineering develops, sells, and supports NEi Nastran engineering analysis and simulation software worldwide for companies in aerospace, automotive, maritime, military, petrochemical, medical, electronics, and consumer products to speed up product development, reduce test and prototyping cost, insure quality, and optimize designs through virtual testing of structures with linear and nonlinear static, dynamic, and thermal loads.
MD Nastran is rapidly becoming the de-facto simulation technology for automotive OEMs and their suppliers," said Amir Mobayen, Senior Vice President, MSC.
NX Nastran sets new standards in solver technology and enables us to extract maximum benefit from the FEA tools that are core to the virtual development process.
Software and chose MD Nastran as the path forward from their currently deployed MSC.
FYD's first application of Nastran is for it's next-generation of designs for the Volvo Ocean Race, a grueling round-the-world race sailed in fully crewed, 70-foot carbon fiber yachts capable of speeds in excess of 40 knots.
The agreement will enable numerous Lockheed Martin sites to leverage common terms and conditions for using NX Nastran and thus reduce internal costs associated with its acquisition and deployment.
MSC Nastran and Patran enable us to offer a broader range of analysis solutions.
Software's simulation solutions path forward, including a move from point products to MSC MasterKey as well as MD Nastran.
