MSC.Software, a leading global provider of engineering simulation software and services, today announced that a new version of MD Adams is released and available for immediate download. Enhancements included in this release provide major performance improvements in both modeling and analysis that make it practical for customers to solve larger and more realistic multidiscipline analysis of mechanical systems.
MSC.Adams and MD Adams are the world’s most widely used and trusted solutions for real dynamics of engineered systems in automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, wind energy, packaged goods, and many other industries. Improving upon this best-in-category foundation, MSC.Software has further implemented a modernized C++ solver, improved memory utilization, and enhanced integration with finite element analysis (FEA). These enhancements have proven to deliver speed improvements of up to 95% reading results from large models, and as much as a 53% improvement in CPU performance in running analysis on these same models. Solving real multidiscipline problems using flexible bodies from FEA has shown in some cases to deliver an astonishing 700% speedup relative to the previous release.
Other important improvements in the new release of MD Adams include:
— Adams/Car plugin module for modeling & analysis of trucks
— Adams/Car tools to easily define model parameters from test data for tires and isolators
— Embedded Simulink S-Function controls models via an External System Library
— Export of Adams models to Nastran FEA from dynamic operating points
— Postprocessing automation support for improved user efficiency
— Support for Shell Elements in Flexible Body Contact
— Native contact detection for cylinders, ellipsoids, and boxes
The new MD Adams release is available for immediate customer download at the MSC Solutions Download Center. More information about MD Adams can be found at www.mscsoftware.com.
