MSC Software Corporation Key Developments

LIXIL Selects MSC Software's Actran Acoustic Analysis Software

MSC Software Corporation has announced that LIXIL has selected MSC Software's Actran acoustic analysis software to predict sound insulation performance and enhance the quality of next generation window sashes. Actran was selected because of the highly reliable support and expertise provided by the FFT team which delivers deep acoustic application knowledge and technological skills. LIXIL is also working on high-precision prediction and control of sound insulation performance through the calculation of sound transmission loss (TL) of the window sash. The diffuse sound field feature in Actran, which reproduces the experimental reverberation room/box, made it possible to improve the accuracy of TL analysis. Also, in addition to the glass, there are various modeling features to analyze vibration and acoustic characteristics involving the complex structure of the window sash. For accuracy evaluation of the Actran results, TL is compared with Actran results and experimental results, with some specification changes, such as different open-close designs for window sashes. Good correlations have been confirmed in these comparisons. Consequently, it is possible to replace the process of TL evaluation in physical experiments with virtual simulation for some of LIXIL's products, thereby reducing experimental costs and enabling faster time to market. Among them, the calculation of TL using Actran is providing high efficiencies in the product development process. With the new enhancement in Actran, in the future it will be able to apply the technology not only to window sashes, but to large scale problems such as actual-size architectural spaces.

Indian Register of Shipping Selects MSC Software Corporation's Dytran Explicit Nonlinear Simulation Solution

MSC Software Corporation announced that Indian Register of Shipping (IRS) has selected MSC Software's Dytran explicit nonlinear simulation solution for underwater explosion analysis.

CEVT Uses MSC Nastran Advanced Nonlinear to Design and Analyze the Vehicle Architecture

MSC Software Corporation announced that CEVT has used MSC Nastran advanced nonlinear to design and analyze the vehicle architecture of C-segment cars for Volvo Cars and Geely Auto. CEVT is focused on developing new modular architectures and key components for Volvo Cars and Geely Auto in the C-segment (small family car segment). The integrated set of engineering simulation solutions from MSC Software and MSC Nastran help CEVT with the advanced linear and nonlinear analysis required in the architecture development program.
