Optimizing An Additively Manufactured Unmanned Aerial System

MSC is proud to support the students of the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Carleton University in the design and optimization of The Peregrine, an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV). The team, led by Professor Mostafa El Sayed, is aiming to design, optimize, build, test, and fly an Additively Manufactured Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) with ...

MSC Software Receives Silver Boeing Performance Excellence Award

MSC Software receives the 2017 Boeing Performance Excellence Award. The Boeing Company issues the award annually to recognize suppliers who have achieved superior performance. MSC Software maintained a Silver composite performance rating for each month of the 12-month performance period, from October 2016 to September 2017. This year, Boeing recognized suppliers who achieved either a ...

Unleash your Engineering Productivity with the Next Generation Platform for Simulation

Aerospace vehicles are some of the most complex structures to design due to the level of physics and mathematics that needs to be involved. CAE has been a key driver for reducing cost and accelerating innovation, but current processes still suffer workflow inefficiencies and results often come too late in the design cycle - especially ...

Introducing MSC Apex Harris Hawk

We are excited to introduce Harris Hawk, the latest release of MSC Apex coming soon! Hawk delivers a unique composites simulation experience that closely resembles the physical reality that composite engineers are familiar with. This release features many enhancements, from higher solver performance, easier Apex model management to the introduction of composite modeling and post-processing ...

How USC Saved Millions of Dollars in the Design of Aerospace Vehicles

In recent years, the Aerospace Industry has increased their reliance on carbon-fiber composite materials to optimize the aerospace parts for optimized parameters, specifically for stiffeners. In fact, more than 50% of modern aerospace vehicle weight is composed of composites. The implementation of composite materials into aerospace vehicles will increase fatigue resistance and reduce maintenance. These stiffeners are ...

Rigorous, Transient 3D CFD Models of Unusually Complicated Fluid Networks/Circuits

The role of fluid dynamics simulation in the design and development of various products has recently undergone what is arguably a paradigm shift due to the ability to simulate unusually complicated, multi-component, hydraulics flow circuits using three dimensional (3D) computational fluid dynamics (CFD) models.  The example shows a lubrication system model (developed using the Simerics-Sys / PumpLinx CFD software) for a 16 cylinder reciprocating internal combustion engine.  This represents an advance in system-level modeling of hydraulic fluid networks over the current state of the art which is a blend of zero and one-dimensional models.  This also represents continued progress in the role of CFD from the traditional component level modeling to system level modeling.  System level modeling provides insight into interactions between components.  Finally, it is equally important that model setup and run times are reasonable relative to development time scales.
