MSC Apex Boosts Productivity with New MSC Nastran Interoperability Features

MSC Software has introduced new interoperability enhancements between MSC Apex and MSC Nastran. The implementation of a new Faceted Body Toolset enables CAE analysts to automatically regenerate geometry from meshes without the need for manual CAD model recreation. “There is huge value in MSC Nastran engineering data for maintenance simulations or as a starting point …


Moon Landing Launched 50 Years of Computer Aided Engineering Innovation

The first manned moon landing fifty years ago remains an inspiring example of human engineering, courage and determination. Today we’re still benefiting from the innovation it unleashed across multiple disciplines as the world looks anew at space exploration. On 20 July 1969 the Apollo 11 spacecraft made the first manned moon landing. Fifty years later …


New Regulations for Electric Vehicles

This week marked an important EU mandate for electric vehicles, requiring all new electric vehicles to emit a noise at low speeds. Read how Actran is helping OEMs, such as Hyundai, by optimizing APAS system design. At moderate to high speeds, the only external noises typically generated by electric vehicles are caused by wind resistance …


Real Time Simulations Using Adams

When it comes to validating and refining Hardware in the Loop (HiL) or Driver in the Loop (DiL) test systems, early in the development process, real-time simulation is an essential part of the process. Real-time simulations provide an opportunity to connect physical components and virtual models in a virtual test environment. High performance computing and …


Introduction – Midsurface Geometry and Meshing for FEA with MSC Apex

In Finite Element Analysis, structures can be represented with a variety of elements including 0D, 1D, 2D and 3D elements. Thin walled structures are commonly represented with 2D or planar elements. Different dimension elements can be used to represent the same geometry. An I-Beam (W Shape) can be idealized as 1D, 2D, or 3D elements. …


Big Data Management in Additive Manufacturing

Additive Manufacturing of polymers is transitioning from rapid prototyping to a true industrial production technique. While it brings valuable opportunities to the industry it also comes with a series of challenges for the engineers: the reliability of the mechanical properties of the final part still has some uncertainty and is not fully supported by standard …
