Effect of Defects on Part Made with AFP Using Digimat

Automatic Fiber Placement (AFP) is a fast and efficient deposition process of carbon prepreg for large component application. To accommodate the composite strips onto a double curved surface, the tows can be cut then restarted and slightly misoriented, yielding to the apparition of gaps between the tows. These two defects, i.e. the gaps and misalignment …


…and the CAE “Oscar” for “Best Multiphysics-Focused CFD” goes to…Software Cradle

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, 21st February 2019…. Software Cradle, the technology-leading Japanese Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software group owned by MSC Software, a Hexagon company, today acknowledged its flagship scFLOW software product received a Computer-aided Engineering (CAE) ‘Oscar’ for ‘Best Multiphysics-Focused CFD’ in 2019. And to reinforce the unique co-simulation capabilities of Software Cradle, the company …


MSC Nastran 2019.0: Improved Accuracy Without Sacrificing Performance Speed

Join us to learn more about the exciting new capabilities available in MSC Nastran 2019.0, available in January, 2019. With the advances in electric car manufacturing, and quieter electric motor engines, high frequency Noises and Vibrations are becoming more prominent, which makes NVH calculations exponentially more expensive.

MSC Software Workshops: December 11-12, 2018 – El Segundo, CA

Minimize development costs and address engineering challenges associated with additive manufacturing with the latest CAE tools and simulation methods. The availability of additive manufacturing presents engineers with new opportunities to improve the performance of load bearing structures but brings new development challenges and costs. MSC Software is hosting a 2-day workshop aimed at discussing how …


The Power of Simulation: Driving Productivity with Additive Manufacturing

It is really only since the turn of the decade that the possibilities and scalability of additive manufacturing have been fully recognized. Additive manufacturing (or 3D printing) is gaining momentum in a range of industries with the potential to revolutionize manufacturing. What makes additive manufacturing so valuable is how it helps manufacturers optimize both component …


MSC Cradle’s v14.1 is Now Available

The latest versions of scSTREAM, HeatDesigner, scFLOW, and scPOST have just been released! Building on from V14, which represented a significant milestone for the MSC and Cradle integration, V14.1 demonstrates reinforced co-simulation capabilities with MSC tools. “In some cases we’ve seen competitive meshing benchmarks where we’ve been over 100x faster than some of the more …
