NEWPORT BEACH, CA, USA, Jan 11, 2019 - MSC Software Corporation, a global leader in simulation software and services, announced the release of MSC Nastran 2019.0.

MSC Nastran is the world’s premier FEA solver that enables simulation of various multidisciplinary engineering problems for aerospace, automotive, defense, energy, manufacturing, and other high-tech industries.

As computing technology improves, the industry is leaning towards analyzing the real-world scenarios more accurately with the use of Finite Element Analysis by using more solid elements. In order to support these high fidelity models with a large number of solid elements, MSC Nastran now provides smooth mesh transition between different shaped solid elements using the new Pyramid Elements.

Larger models require efficient model management. With the new technology called “Modules” in MSC Nastran, the model management now becomes very accessible.

Further, with advances in electric car manufacturing, and quieter electric motor engines, high-frequency Noises and Vibrations are becoming more prominent, which makes these calculations exponentially more expensive. In MSC Nastran 2019.0 release, we are introducing a new FASTFR module that can significantly improve the speed of NVH computations up to 10x faster.
