In May 2011, MSC Software, In Summa Innovation, and Fokker Aerostructures entered into a close partnership. In the so-called “Fokker Virtual Lab” the three companies started to do serious research with MSC Software products SimXpert and MSC Nastran.
The goal of this first project was twofold:
1) Familiarization and testing of MSC Nastran
2) Familiarization with SimXpert to create a prototype for a process to automate the creation of a QA-sheet, the quality assurance of FEM models.
Challenge:Investigate new simulation technologies for future use.
