Are you having a mid-sized crisis?


The other day I had the opportunity to talk with Kenneth Wong, Contributing Editor for Desktop Engineering about MSC’s MD Nastran Desktop, recently introduced for suppliers and other mid-sized manufacturers.

I’ve included a link to Wong’s blog here which highlights some of MD Nastran Desktop’s productivity and cost savings benefits to mid-sized manufacturing businesses.

It has been exciting to see small, agile manufacturing businesses already begin deploying various MD Nastran Desktop bundles within their organizations as a means to do virtual testing with greater productivity, more certainty in results, and less up-front investment.

Product manufactures, independent of size or industry, face tight budgets and extreme time to market pressures. Therefore, providing cost effective simulation bundles with the right set of analysis capabilities backed by superior training solutions and customer support was critical.

Sophisticated engineering problems ranging from nonlinear deformations of elastomeric materials, to advanced dynamics of mechanical systems, to thermal-mechanical coupling problems can all be addressed within MD Nastran Desktop. For the first time, all the advanced FE solver capabilities in Nastran once only accessible to large OEMs are available to everyone through an integrated, easy to use environment.

Each MD Nastran Desktop bundle provides a complete solution for CAD import, modeling and meshing, multidisciplinary analysis solver capabilities including advanced coupling and co-simulation, to post processing, reporting, and automation. The bundles are available from MSC directly or any of our global business partners.
