Latest Noran Engineering Release Delivers Innovative Solutions for Impact, 3D Linear Contact, Advanced Nonlinear, and Composites Analysis for Nastran FEA Users

WESTMINSTER, CA--(Marketwire - July 6, 2007) - Noran Engineering, Inc. (NEi), a leading developer of engineering analysis and simulation software, announced it will unveil NEi Nastran V9.1 for high end Finite Element Analysis (FEA) on July 11 via a live webinar to be held at 1pm EDT, 10am PDT. Sign up for the event is at The new software will appeal to engineers involved in simulating the behavior of structures with characteristics that have proven difficult, time consuming, and expensive to model. Technology differentiators in NEi Nastran V9.1 that address these issues include:

--  Automated Impact Analysis for transient impact studies and drop
--  Hyperelastic Material Model for simulating large strain, rubber like
--  Linear Surface Contact for performing true surface-to-surface contact
    analysis in a linear static solution
--  Automatic Shell-to-Shell Contact for joining difficult 2D meshes
--  Automated Surface Contact and Weld Generation
--  3D Composite Solid Element
--  Vibration Fatigue Analysis
--  64-Bit Large Model Capability
--  Industry specific code enhancements for aerospace and maritime users
The features in NEi Nastran V9.1 were developed as a result of close collaboration with users who were looking for new methods and technology in these areas. Noran Engineering distinguishes itself from broad based PLM/CAD/CAE companies' FEA offerings by developing innovative approaches to long standing modeling problems in various segments of the aerospace, maritime, medical, and consumer product industries.

Julia Oien, Director of Sales for Noran Engineering, commented on how the software release showcases the company's unique strength in the marketplace, "Analysis and simulation is our only business. As a result we can develop close working relationships with engineers, analysts, and program managers at a number of highly innovative companies that need to get the most out of this technology. NEi Nastran V9.1 reflects the kind of collaboration that comes from this environment."
