MSC Announces MD Patran
MSC.Software today announced MD Patran, an enterprise-level
solution that delivers highly enhanced multidisciplinary
capabilities to pre- and post-processing for CAE simulation.
MD Patran brings advanced simulation modeling and geometry creation and modification tools that allow business to create, use and reuse finite element models involved in heavily engineered products. Using the GUI-based MD Patran, companies can perform multi-disciplinary analysis -- significantly improving productivity. MD Patran is a natural companion to MD Nastran working to unleash its multi-disciplinary (MD) capabilities.
"MD Patran is the next generation product evolved from the popular Patran product line, which performed notably in a recent evaluation over fifty functions for structural analysis applications by Collaborative Product Development Associates (CPDA)," said Don H. Brown, chairman of CPDA, LLC and author of a March 2006 study on solvers*. "This study concluded that MSC Nastran, which is now part of MD Nastran, has a special strength in pre- processing and post-processing and provides significantly better capability in comparison to other leading suppliers."
"In our work with Tier 1 suppliers in aerospace, automotive and manufacturing, we saw a need for simulation solutions that combine best-of-breed functionality, global collaborative abilities and features that allow businesses to streamline operations, and MD Patran addresses all these needs in a powerful package," said Reza Sadeghi, Vice President Enterprise Computing, MSC.Software. "MD Patran allows companies to unleash the power of their MD Nastran finite element models, delivering complex products with increased certainty in the results."
