MSC.Software, the leader in multidiscipline simulation solutions that accelerate product innovation, today announced that SimXpert 2010 is released and ready for download.
With this release, engineers can access all the new features of MD Nastran 2010 and MD Adams 2010 and perform advanced simulations in the areas of nonlinear analysis, bi-directional thermo-mechanical coupling and expanded physics simulations including co-simulation with CFD codes. Integrated with MSC's advanced multidiscipline (MD) solver technologies, SimXpert provides an efficient "end-to-end" solution that takes you from CAD to analysis report in a single easy-to-use application.
SimXpert 2010 delivers several new functionalities and improvements in the areas of usability, CAD support, geometry cleanup, meshing, FEA and Multibody Dynamics (MBD) solver support and the introduction of a Systems & Controls Workspace. Enhancements in this new release help engineers use a single, integrated, easy to use environment for simulation of essential multidisciplinary real world behavior providing dramatic productivity improvement. Benefits to users include:
Access to latest multidisciplinary functionalities in MD Nastran and MD Adams
These extended multidisciplinary capabilities in SimXpert are proving to speed simulation time and bottom line results for companies of all sizes. For instance:
"The use of glued contact for assemblies reduces setup time from 1 day to 1 hour and avoids tedious mesh alignment between parts," says Julien Rodes from Sogeti.
Usability enhancements, Improved Meshing and CAD Support
This release of SimXpert provides wide range of usability enhancements:
Introduction of Systems and Controls Workspace
The newly introduced Systems & Controls Workspace supports the full capability set of Easy5 within SimXpert and integrates with Simulink®. Within this workspace, users can model, simulate and design multi-domain dynamic systems which include electrical, thermal, hydraulic, gas dynamics, digital/analog control systems and much more. The Systems and Controls Workspace integrates with other SimXpert workspaces for true Motion-Structures-Controls integration, and engineers can leverage SimXpert Template Builder for process capture and reuse.
"This is the most significant release of SimXpert to date. Working with our users we've put together a broad range of capabilities that will have real impact on simulating more real world behaviors while accelerating development time and cutting the cost of physical testing," said Sanjay Choudhry, VP Product & Release Management at MSC.Software.
