“I was aware of Nastran and its capabilities due to my work at Fokker Space during the early ‘90s. Due to the demands for Nastran modelling from the ESA we took a strategic decision to move away from Siemens I-deas. I contacted Desktop Engineering as they are the main UK business partner for MSC. The competitive pricing package they offered made the decision to buy the FEA bundle relatively straightforward. Within a month we had signed contracts. During the evaluation period, the support and training supplied by DTE was exceptional.”

Nastran is the world’s most widely used Finite Element Analysis (FEA) solver. When it comes to solving for stress/strain behaviour, dynamic and vibration response and thermal gradients in real-world systems, Nastran is recognized as the most trusted multidiscipline solver in the world.
Nastran is built on work done by NASA scientists and researchers, and is trusted for the design of mission critical systems in every industry. Nearly every spacecraft, aircraft, and vehicle designed in the last 40 years has been analyzed using MSC Nastran.
In recent years, several extensions to its capabilities have resulted in a single multidisciplinary solver providing users with a trusted solution to simulate everything from a single component to complex assemblies under diverse conditions.
Nastran offers a complete set of linear static and dynamic analysis capabilities along with unparalleled support for super elements enabling users to solve large, complex assemblies more efficiently. Nastran also offers a complete set of implicit and explicit nonlinear analysis capabilities, thermal and interior/exterior acoustics, and coupling between various disciplines such as thermal, structural, and fluid interaction. New modular packaging that enables you to get only what you need makes it more affordable to own Nastran than ever before.
