MSC Software Corporation Announces the Release of Easy5 2017

MSC Software Corporation announced release of Easy5 2017. Easy5 2017 expands its platform in Multi-domain modeling and simulation solutions to deliver even more enhanced performance. The release will be available in December 2016. Highlights of this release include: Functional Mock-up Unit Export - With Easy5 2017, Functional Mock up Unit (FMI) for Model Exchange is supported. Users can now designate quantities with "Parameter" causality, so that they are not allowed to vary during a simulation. This provides engineers with a more generalized, portable method for exporting Easy5 models into other tools or including models from other tools into their Easy5 models. Global Library Configuration Parameters - Easy5 2017 now includes the ability to create global configuration parameters. The parameters are used to control how components in a particular application library are configured. The Thermal/Hydraulics Library supplied with Easy5 2017 includes two distinct configurations for many components: the normal default configuration and a "reduced order" configuration. The same model can switch between high fidelity and reduced order with a single command. This allows the user to build an exact simulation of a physical plant and/or controls, verify it, and then switch to an approximation that will run in real time without recoding or modifications. Reduced Order Modeling: The Thermal/Hydraulics Library (HC), delivered with Easy5 2017, now includes a global configuration parameter to control whether hydraulics models are generated in full fidelity (default) or in a "reduced order" mode. A number of components now have an additional distinct configuration that simplifies the generated executables to the point they can run with an Euler fixed-step integrator. Models can now be created, tested, and verified through FMU to run on real-time simulators. The process of reducing the model order requires minimal user interaction. Results from reduced order and full fidelity models can be directly compared for accuracy.

Riba Composites Selects MSC Apex and MSC Nastran Nonlinear for Composites Analysis

MSC Software Corporation announced that the R&D department at Riba Composites introduced MSC Nastran Nonlinear (Sol400) and MSC Apex to broaden the range of analysis capabilities for composite components. Riba Composites was already using MSC Nastran to support the co-design process of structural and non-structural components made up of advanced composites, based on their customers’ unique and specific requirements. Riba Composites will now be able to execute nonlinear analysis in addition to linear analysis, and modal analysis. This will allow them to take into consideration large strains and deformations, nonlinear buckling, predict composites failure, and study the behavior after failure and buckling with Progressive Failure Analysis. MSC Apex will help Riba to create FEM models starting from CAD. Thanks to easy to use geometry defeaturing and modeling capabilities, it is possible to remove thousands of geometric features in order to obtain a high quality mesh. The 'Midsurface' tools help users to extract and stitch midsurfaces, as well as assign thickness and offset in a few clicks. In addition, the generative behavior of MSC Apex allows users to modify models without having to rebuild a new mesh.
