Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation
Sikorsky, a world leader in the design and manufacture of advanced helicopters, reduces design bottlenecks with MSC Nastran Advanced Nonlinear.
Challenge:Sporadic use of advanced finite element (FEA) software, such as nonlinear analysis by design engineers, can result in either excessive refresher training time or a bottleneck while in the queue for an analyst. The cause is a result of different types of solvers requiring different models. Commercially available translators can help, but still require significant amounts of cleanup.
