Multibody Dynamics Simulation Solution
Adams is the most widely used multibody dynamics and motion analysis software in the world. Adams helps engineers to study the dynamics of moving parts, how loads and forces are distributed throughout mechanical systems, and to improve and optimize the performance of their products.

MSC Nastran

Fast & Accurate Multidiscipline Simulations
MSC Nastran is the world's most widely used Finite Element Analysis (FEA) solver. When it comes to simulating stress, dynamics, or vibration of real-world, complex systems, MSC Nastran is still the best and most trusted software in the world period. Today, manufacturers of everything from parts to complex assemblies are choosing the FEA solver that is reliable and accurate enough to be certified by the FAA and other regulatory agencies.


Advanced Nonlinear Simulation Solution
Marc combines to deliver a complete solution (pre-processing, solution, and post-processing) for implicit nonlinear FEA. Marc provides the easiest to use and most robust capabilities for contact, large strain, and multiphysics analysis available today to solve static and quasi-static nonlinear problems.


Multidiscipline Simulation
SimXpert is a next generation CAE application for modeling and analysis using FEA and multibody dynamics (MBD). Integrated with MSC's advanced multidiscipline solver technologies, SimXpert provides an efficient "end-to-end" solution that takes you from CAD to analysis report in a single easy-to-use application.
