SANTA ANA, CA--(Marketwire - Feb 9, 2012) - MSC Software Corporation, the leader in multidiscipline simulation solutions that accelerate product innovation, today announced that Strand Aerospace Malaysia (SAM) utilized MSC Nastran and Patran to improve structural analysis efficiency.
The analysis of structures is required to develop a sound understanding of their behavior when subjected to loading conditions resulting from a combination of operational usage, the environment and in-service degradation. The challenge is to design the structures such that they provide efficient load transfer, and offer lightweight and high performing solutions.
MSC Software technology currently used at Strand include Patran for pre- and post-processing and MSC Nastran for structural analysis, both of which are used by engineers as a result of becoming broadly accepted tools for linear and multidisciplinary analysis within the aerospace and aviation industry. Strand engineers are developing new skills in using these tools, such that there is seamless transfer of data between all organizations in which the company does business.
"We are looking to develop a large number of engineers with Finite Element Modeling (FEM) skills and competency since we recognize the important need for such capability within the aerospace / aviation industry, and in other industries where structural engineering problems need solving," said Mr. Naguib Mohd Nor, Chief Operating Officer.
"We are proud to be part of the mainstream solution technology portfolio that supports Strand Aerospace Malaysia in their expansion in the ever changing CAE landscape in Aerospace today," said Mr. Alias Mahamad Isa, Country Manager/Regional Director, at MSC Software ASEAN ANZ.
