MSC Patran 2018.0.0 | 3.7 Gb

MSC Software Corp. is pleased to announce the availability of Patran 2018, is an industry-standard Finite Element Modeling Pre- and Post-Processor. It has a full-featured modeling environment for almost any kind of structural or thermal geometry, meshers, loads and restraints–anything you need to do a structural or thermal model for analysis in NASTRAN, ABAQUS, ANSYS, plus a host of other solvers, including its own inherent linear solver.

MSC Patran Release notes:

MSC Software is pleased to announce the latest release of Patran 2018 with new enhancements that are designed to improve user productivity. Major areas of focus in this release include the following:

– MSC Nastran – Patran Compatibility
MSC Nastran 2018.1 has been released to ensure improved compatibility with Patran 2018.0
– Enhanced Grid Point Force Display (GPFORCE)
In MSC Nastran, GPFORCE output is used to provide the value of force at the grid points. This output clearly shows if the total force on a particular grid is balanced or not. It also provides users with the contribution and transfer of the forces in the structures. (for example, force contributions from MPCs, SPCs, Elements are provided to the user). Older versions of MSC Nastran and Patran, did not include contact and friction forces in the GPFORCE output. In some cases, this could lead into unbalanced GPFORCE output. Starting from version 2018, MSC Nastran supports both contact and friction forces in GPFORCE output. Similarly, Patran 2018 supports these new GPFORCE outputs for post processing via the HDF5 results file.
– Enhanced HDF5 Results Support
A new MSC Nastran database in Hierarchical Data Format (HDF5) was introduced in 2016. HDF5 is a database that stores and manages MSC Nastran input and output data in a hierarchical structure format. Although Patran has been supporting post processing of these result files, the 2018 release expands its capabilities to support additional output data through HDF5 files.
– Enhanced Mirroring Options
The mirror option in Patran 2018 has been enhanced to provide easier options for users. This functionality is accessible through the Group/Transform menu. The Mirror option rigidly rotates all the entities in a group by 180 degrees across a mirror plane, thus it creates a mirror image. When LBCs and properties are mirrored, the finite element model results should be symmetrical.
. Connectivity Reversal of All Mirrored Elements
. Transformation of Loads and Boundary Conditions (LBCs)
. Transformation of Element Properties
. Transformation of Composite Ply Angles

– Import of MSC Apex Models
Patran 2018 is designed to work with various CAD and FEA solvers to create analysis ready models for a wide range of simulations including linear statics, dynamics, nonlinear, Fatigue and etc. For example, one can utilize the Direct Modeling and Meshing methods of MSC Apex to expedite repairing, editing and meshing the geometry and export it from MSC Apex to be used in Patran. The new utility in Patran 2018 can then be used to easily import the Geometry and FEM data into Patran. The users can easily continue the analysis in Patran without the need to worry about the associations between the elements, and the mesh. This utility is designed to increase user productivity by expediting the process workflow between MSC Apex and Patran.

About MSC Patran. Patran is the world’s most widely used pre/post-processing software for Finite Element Analysis (FEA), providing solid modeling, meshing, and analysis setup for MSC Nastran, Marc, Abaqus, LS-DYNA, ANSYS, and Pam-Crash.

Designers, engineers, and CAE analysts tasked with creating and analyzing virtual prototypes are faced with a number of tedious, time-wasting tasks. These include CAD geometry translation, geometry cleanup, manual meshing processes, assembly connection definition, and editing of input decks to setup jobs for analysis by various solvers. Pre-processing is still widely considered the most time consuming aspect of CAE, consuming up to 60% of users’ time. Assembling results into reports that can be shared with colleagues and managers is also still a very labor intensive, tedious activity.

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 solvers. From geometry cleanup tools that make it easy for engineers to deal with gaps and slivers in CAD, to solid modeling tools that enable 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 (including hex meshing), manual methods that provide more control, or combinations of both. Finally, loads, boundary conditions, and analysis setup for most popular FE solvers is built in, minimizing the need to edit input decks. Patran’s comprehensive and industry tested capabilities ensure that your virtual prototyping efforts provide results fast so that you can evaluate product performance against requirements and optimize your designs.
