MSC Software

MSC Software makes products that enable engineers to validate and optimize their designs using virtual prototypes. MSC Software’s technology is used by leading manufacturers for linear and nonlinear finite element analysis (FEA), acoustics, fluid-structure interaction (FSI), multi-physics, optimization, fatigue and durability, multi-body dynamics, and control systems simulation.

As a trusted partner of Tata Technologies, MSC Software helps companies improve quality, save time and reduce costs associated with design and test of manufactured products. Our clients can accurately and reliably predict how products will behave in the real world to help engineers design more innovative products – quickly and cost effectively.


Actran is used to perform acoustic analysis, the study of sound propagation through a medium such as a fluid (gas or liquid) or solid (structure).

  • Actran helps reduce physical prototyping costs and addresses the following challenges:
    Comfort: Consumers may find products very loud and annoying. There is a need to make such products more audibly pleasant.
  • Acoustic Signature: Some products are designed to have unique characteristics, including acoustic signatures. Examples include engine noise, the right shutter sound when a camera takes a picture, and so on.
  • Regulations: Vehicles can have high noise emissions, for example jet engine noise is noticeable by airport adjacent neighbourhoods. Regulations exist that limit the amount of noise vehicles can make.

Adams is used to predict the forces or mechanical loads of dynamic systems and its components. The loads are used in subsequent structural analysis. Examples of dynamic systems include: engines of ground vehicles, washing machines, mechanisms used in cameras, and so on.

Digimat lets engineers do both micro- and macro-scale analyses of composites, predicting how they will perform and calculating their mechanical, thermal and electrical properties for use in all sorts of downstream FEA analyses.

MSC Nastran is the most trusted multidiscipline solver for stress/strain behaviour, dynamic and vibration response and nonlinear behaviour in real-world systems. From the high performance computing capability to the high degree of certainty it delivers, MSC Nastran is engineered to give you a heightened awareness of how your products will behave.

Easy5 provides Advanced Controls & Systems Simulation. It allows engineers to express and simulate the workings of complex dynamic systems in schematic (1D) form.

SimManager is a simulation lifecycle management system that is capable of storing and managing volumes of simulation data and improving simulation processes.

Dytran is a dedicated explicit nonlinear FEA solution used to assess the behaviour of structures and fluids subjected to the following conditions:
• The events to be simulated are high speed and short (transient dynamic)
• The shape or geometry of the solid is expected to change dramatically (large deformation / a high degree of nonlinearity) or contact of some sort is expected (boundary condition nonlinearity)
At a technical level, Dytran is based on explicit nonlinear finite element methods and is used for analysing the dynamic, nonlinear behaviour of solid components, structures and fluids. It is particularly suitable for analysing short, transient dynamic events that involve large deformations, a high degree of nonlinearity, and interactions between fluids and structures.

Marc is a powerful, general-purpose, nonlinear finite element analysis solution to accurately simulate the response of your products under static, dynamic and multi-physics loading scenarios. Marc’s versatility in modelling nonlinear material behaviours and transient environmental conditions makes it ideal to solution for your complex design problems. With its innovative technologies and modelling methodologies, Marc enables you to simulate complex real world behaviour of mechanical systems making it best suited to address your manufacturing and design problems in a single environment.

Patran is the world’s most widely used pre/post-processing software for Finite Element Analysis (FEA), providing solid modelling, meshing, analysis setup and post-processing for solvers like MSC Nastran.
Patran provides a rich set of tools that streamline the creation of analysis ready models for linear, nonlinear, explicit dynamics, thermal, and other finite element solutions.

MSC Apex is the world’s first Computational PartsTM Based CAE System. It provides engineers with a generative simulation workflow: Rapidly evaluate design performance. Quickly prepare analysis models and incrementally solve parts and assemblies for faster run times and results visualization.

MSC Fatigue is a FE-based durability and damage tolerance solver, and is the only solution that can deal with the full range of fracture and fatigue life calculations for static and dynamic problems in both the time and frequency domain. It enables durability engineers to quickly and accurately predict how long products will last under any combination of time-dependent or frequency-dependent loading conditions.

SimXpert is a unified computer aided engineering environment for product simulation that enables manufacturers to accelerate the speed and accuracy of simulation, increase design productivity, and bring better products to market faster. SimXpert accomplishes this by integrating multidiscipline analysis capabilities, the best simulation methodologies, and a high degree of customization all into one engineering environment.
