MSC Software
Items Available:  Academic Structures Bundle and Academic Motion Bundle
Discount Offer:  Free
Discount Amount:  100%
Additional Information:  MSC Software is the industry leader in developing simulation software technology that enables engineers to validate and optimize their designs using virtual prototypes. Customers in almost every part of the manufacturing process use our software to complement, and in some cases even replace the physical prototype “build and test” process that has traditionally been used in product design. As a trusted partner, MSC Software helps companies improve quality, save time, and reduce costs associated with the design and test of manufactured products. Our solutions accurately and reliably predict how products will behave in the real world to help engineers design more innovative products - quickly and cost effectively. MSC Software's technology is used by leading manufacturers for linear and nonlinear finite element analysis (FEA), acoustics, fluid-structure interaction (FSI), multi-physics, optimization, fatigue and durability, multi-body dynamics, and control systems simulation. MSC pioneered many of the technologies that are now relied upon by industry leaders to analyze and predict stress and strain, vibration & dynamics, acoustics, and thermal analysis in our flagship product, MSC Nastran. MSC Software will be offering a variety of its simulation software tools for finite element analysis as well as multibody dynamics. Among these offerings our Academic Motion that includes Adams/Car for vehicle dynamics and durability simulation. As well as Adams Real-Time modules for generating real-time vehicle models suitable for software in-the-loop and hardware in-the-loop simulations. For more information, click here for our student competition page:
The Academic bundles offered are as follows:
  •  Academic Structures Bundle: Provides linear and non-linear finite element analysis (FEA) capabilities for structural & thermal simulations as well as others such as those involving impacts and fluid-structure interactions; based on the latest versions of MSC Nastran, Patran, Dytran, Marc, and Sinda.
  • Academic Motion Bundle: Provides capabilities for a wide variety of multi-body motion and mechanical system simulations, including hydraulics & controls, using a geometric modeling approach or a schematic, block-diagram modeling approach; based on Adams and Easy5.
