MSC Nastran: Multidisciplinary Structural Analysis Application

MSC Nastran is an application used to perform static, dynamics, and thermal analysis across linear and non-linear domains all enabled by high-performance computing. It is based on sophisticated numerical methods, the most prominent being the Finite Element Method.

Moreover, MSC Nastran is a finite element analysis solver from MSC Software that continues to be the selected choice by engineers for over 45 years. From the high-performance computing capability to the high degree of certainty it delivers, MSC Nastran is engineered to give you a heightened awareness of how your products will behave.

The software is used to validate that products have the necessary strength, stiffness, and durability to empower the product life and safety. It might also be used for virtually prototypes in early design stages, prevent development issues which lower cost and reduce time to market, and optimize design to be up front of the competition.

Known across the world for generating fast and accurate simulation results, this advanced solver efficiently takes advantage of your computing resources, thanks to continuously improved parallel processing capabilities, smart algorithms, and convenience tools.

MSC Nastran is built on work contracted by NASA and is the trusted FEA solution for industries worldwide. Nearly every spacecraft, aircraft, and vehicle designed in the last 45 years has been analyzed using MSC Nastran because it delivers unparalleled accuracy.

MSC Nastran features multiple analysis disciplines, enabling customers with one structural analysis solution for a wide variety of engineering problems.

Use one platform to perform linear or non-linear analysis for the following disciplines: static, dynamic (NVH & Acoustics included), thermal, and buckling, and reduce the dependency on multiple structural analysis programs from various vendors.

Structural systems consist of numerous components and must be analyzed. The software features several methods to join multiple components for the system level structural analysis.

MSC Nastran allows you to run calculus faster due to its high-performance computing capabilities.

Take advantage of multi-core and multi-node clusters with parallelization technologies: Shared Memory Parallel and Distributed Memory Parallel.
