MSC Software Corporation (MSC), a computer-aided engineering (CAE) simulation software and services company, has announced its inaugural MSC Nastran Excellence Award, which recognizes the engineering and design innovation of its users around the world.
MSC Nastran is a simulation tool used across numerous industries—from aerospace to medical technology. It is a finite element analysis (FEA) platform for structural simulation. MSC Nastran is used to optimize the performance, lifespan and comfort of product designs across all industries.
The Award celebrates MSC Nastran users’ work in FEA simulation to optimize everything from planes, trains, automobiles, white goods, ships, to spacecraft and beyond. Lauding the most interesting and diverse projects using MSC Nastran, the award will provide global recognition to the engineers, designers and manufacturers employing the full potential of the tool, and up to $1,000 in Amazon vouchers or donation to charity of your choice.
“MSC Nastran has fueled some of the greatest product innovations in the modern world over the past 50 years, from NASA’s foundational explorations into space, to supporting our mobility, engineering and medical tech today by predictively optimizing designs before prototyping,” says Keith Hanna, VP Marketing, MSC Software. “At MSC we want to celebrate excellence in FEA by shedding light on the incredible innovation happening today, and the many talented people around the world that are using MSC Nastran to design the future.”
Submissions to the award must be made publically available during the 12 months before nomination, and can include papers presented at conferences, articles appearing in journals and magazines, and other original work documented in a publicly available form, such as a research thesis.
Projects should demonstrate quantifiable benefits such as quality or productivity improvements, environmental or economic cost reduction. They must push the boundaries of the MSC Nastran tool, with multi-physics applications encouraged.
