MSC Patran

FEA Modeling Solution:  comprehensive pre- and post-processing environment for FEA analysis

Streamline creation of analysis ready models

MSC Software’s 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. From geometry cleanup tools that make it easy for engineers to deal with gaps and slivers in CAD to solid modelling tools that enable the creation of models from scratch, Patran makes it easy for anyone to create FE models.

Meshes are easily created on surfaces and solids alike using fully automated meshing routines, manual methods that provide more control, or combinations of both.

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.
