(NEWPORT BEACH, CA November 16 2018)- MSC Software Corporation, a global leader in simulation software and services, today announced that it has strengthened its relationship with its longtime partner, cosin scientific software, to accelerate the development and adoption of the next generation of physics-based tire simulation. MSC has entered into a distribution agreement with cosin to resell their entire product portfolio.

"Cosin simulation software's industry leading portfolio for tire and road modeling is a strong complement to our market leading vehicle dynamics solution, Adams. We are now pleased to provide our customers access to the entire set of cosin's modeling and tire data manipulation capabilities" said John Janevic, Chief Operating Officer of MSC Software. "

Dr Michael Gipser, partner and co-founder of cosin notes that "This change to our relationship will enable our user base to have a single point of contact for software purchase, access frequent product updates, and added capabilities through FTire extensions (e.g. FTire/acc, FTire/Flex Rim) plus future advanced road descriptions we will add to our portfolio."

To access the new advanced tire modeling capability, existing Adams users of FTire should contact their MSC Software Account Manager.
