Aerospace & Defense

Challenges

The Aerospace & Defense industry faces enormous challenges: mission critical products, limited physical prototyping, complex “system of systems” engineering, and widespread loss of engineering knowledge as experts retire, among others.

MSC.Software has been a trusted partner to Aerospace & Defence since being founded in the 1960s. When it comes to accurately and reliably simulating large, complex, dynamic systems that are mission critical, our products are the best in the world – period. Our engineering staff also has deep experience in the industry, so we have the know-how to help you apply those products to Aerospace & Defence problems.

MSC solutions for Aerospace & Defence include:

  • Ground vibration testing (GVT)
  • Internal & external loads
  • Bird strike & ingestion
  • Assembly & part stress (“loads to notes”)
  • Vehicle ditching (water, ground)
  • Aeroelastic static, gust & flutter simulation
  • Ballistics & weapons simulation
  • Large scale vehicle assembly modelling
  • Rotor Dynamics
  • Kinematic simulation of landing gear & wing flaps
  • Aircraft tie-down load analysis
  • Random vibration within space vehicles
  • Orbital heating
  • Tracked vehicle simulation
  • Composites modelling & failure analysis
  • Materials management
