Nastran 2012.2 from MSC Software provides engineers a highly functional single solver to perform multidisciplinary analyses including linear statics, dynamics, and implicit and explicit nonlinear for simulation of everyday common to complex application use cases. According to the company, high-performance computing productivity and nonlinear robustness improvements were the focus of this latest MSC Nastran release. New methodology for contact detection through the new segment-to-segment approach improves the fidelity of contact analysis. Through collaboration with Intel, MSC Software enhanced MSC Nastran to take advantage of the advanced vector extension on Intel’s Sandy Bridge processor on the Windows operating systems in addition to its support for Linux systems completed earlier in 2012. Additionally, Nastran 2012.2’s nonlinear analysis solution is capable of running analyses in both distributed and shared-memory parallel modes (DMP and SMP, respectively).
