MSC Nastran 2019.0: Improved Accuracy Without Sacrificing Performance Speed

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. In this release, we are introducing a new FASTFR module that can benefit from SMP-parallel kernels in order to significantly improve the speed of NVH computations.

Further, as computing technology improves, we lean towards using more solid elements in FE models to simulate the real-world scenarios. In order to support these higher fidelity models with larger and larger numbers of solid elements, MSC Nastran 2019.0 release is introducing mesh transition element called Pyramid Elements, five or thirteen-noded elements, to accommodate smooth mesh transition between different shaped solid elements. But, larger models require more efficient model management. In MSC Nastran 2019.0, we have newly enhanced Modules that will now allow for copying, mirroring, and translating a primary Module by enabling Instantiation.

Additionally, our best in-class non-linear rotor dynamics capability got even better with some newly enhanced capabilities in MSC Nastran 2019.0. Non-linear Harmonics Analysis allows inclusion of discrete nonlinearities to be added to a harmonic response analysis. As long as the nonlinearities remain relatively light, several types of problems may be solved without needing to resort to fully blown nonlinear transient analysis.
