MSC Marc

Powerful, general-purpose, non-linear finite element analysis solution: static, dynamic, multi-physics loading scenarios

MSC Software’s Best Kept Secret

The UK market for non-linear FEA is dominated by two popular solvers, while Marc languishes in relative obscurity.  This is in no way a reflection of its capability!

Some users who have come to Marc from the other two have been surprised by its ability to solve problems that could not be done in the other packages, due to the broad set of controls that Marc provides for the analyst.  Others have been surprised by the openness of Marc to customisation through its user subroutines, covering a huge range of aspects of the solver, which in turn open the door to co-simulation with other software applications.

All have been surprised by the speed with which solutions are obtained.

Key benefits include:

  • Robust contact model to manage the interaction of the most complex assemblies

  • A selection of rapid solvers to deliver results as quickly as possible

  • A powerful set of controls for the solver to enable you to get the answers you need

  • A broad set of multi-physics options

  • A wide range of built-in material models and access to customize your own through user subroutines

  • An experienced support network to help you when you need it

Don’t just take our word for it…Here’s what some delighted customers have said:

Access through MSC One

You might think that such a solution would come at a premium price and be accessible to the largest companies.  Big companies do not have a monopoly on big problems to solve, and the MSC One token licensing scheme enables access to this powerful solver at a price level affordable to even the smallest customer.

 If you are finding your current non-linear solver is letting you down, or you are looking to start simulating non-linear events, then please get in touch*.  Our CAE Consultant has nearly 30 years experience in advanced FEA across many industries and can give you an honest assessment of how Marc could help you.

*DTE has the most cost-effective pricing for MSC Software in UK: packages start from less than 1/3 rd of the price of leading competitor products

Insight

MSC Apex as a pre-processor for MSC Marc

MSC Apex is first and foremost a pre/post processor for Nastran but that doesn’t stop users of other solver technologies from taking advantage of the model preparation and meshing capability. 

The Nastran bulk data format is the closest thing we have to a universal FEA definition file and so can be read by almost every other FEA application out there.
