MSC Software has just released a GPU-accelerated version of the Marc 2012 Finite Element Analysis application, which speeds up a range of engineering simulations. By accelerating complex manufacturing and design simulations by two to six times, GPU acceleration enables engineers to develop more realistic models faster development cycles.

GPU-accelerated Marc 2012 enables engineers to run more high-fidelity design simulations in a given period of time,” said Andrew Cresci, general manager for ISV Strategic Alliances at Nvidia. “They can identify issues faster and deliver better, higher-performing products. In the case of the auto industry, this could mean improved powertrain reliability through better thermal management, longer-lasting transmission components with the design of more rugged rubber boots and seals, and better fuel efficiency.”

Marc is a powerful, general-purpose, advanced nonlinear and multi-physics solution that accurately simulates the response of a range of products under static, dynamic and multi-physics loading scenarios. Read the Full Story.
