The MacNeal-Schwendler Corp. is celebrating a birthday--sort of. The company's flagship analysis product, MSC/NASTRAN, is now in version 70.5, a sign of its longevity and, say many, its enduring quality. The new release has many features aimed at aerospace and automotive engineers. For aerospace, the company promises more accurate simulation of vehicle control system behavior during flight. There are reportedly also advances in support of coupling aerodynamics and structural models. Automotive engineers get a new geometric and nonlinear damping feature to design suspensions better. That's the first step to predicting loads between suspension and body components due to road surfaces. Also, engine manufacturers get new modeling for understanding the dynamic interaction.
