MSC.Software’s multi-discipline capabilities to focus on race car simulations
MSC.Software, a provider of enterprise simulation services, has announced that Triple Eight Race Engineering, a UK-based motorsport company, has extended their relationship to include the company’s multi-discipline services.
With the addition of MSC.Software’s multi-discipline (MD) services, Triple Eight Race Engineering aims to increase the scale, complexity and the reliability of its race car simulations.
Under the new agreement, Triple Eight will migrate its existing simulation environment to a new standard platform based on the MD services including MD Nastran. The migration to the new MD solution portfolio is managed via Enterprise Advantage, a flexible scaled licensing system, allowing a cost-effective technology expansion, while maintaining the heritage of experience and investment in the company’s existing engineering products environments, said Triple Eight.
By using the MD solutions, the design team at Triple Eight is expected to focus on overall structural optimization of the race car chassis and detailed simulation both at component and system level of critical performance items such as the suspension assemblies. In addition to an accurate representation of complex non-linear race applications, the new MD capabilities will provide productivity gains in the areas such as multi-body free and glued contact, and topology optimization, added Triple Eight.
Kevin Berry, technical director at Triple Eight Race Engineering, said: We are enthusiastic about adding MSC.Software’s MD solutions to our existing simulation capability. Our designers and engineers heavily rely on having not only the best software technology but also support at hand, whenever it is required to avoid any down time. In these ways, MSC.Software has played a key part in helping us to achieve success and we look forward to having many more championships to celebrate.
