Bengaluru, Feb 25, 2019: MSC Software Corporation, a leading simulation software and services provider (part of Hexagon), today announced the launch of a book on its popular MSC Nastran and Patran software products in Thailand. This is the  first ever book in Thai language related to MSC products and has been written by two renowned and well-respected researchers, Prof. Dr. Pramote Dechaumphai, Professor of the Aerospace Engineering Dept, Chulalongkorn University, and Sedthawatt Sucharitpwatskul who works with the Thailand National Science and Technology Development Agency.

Sigma Solutions, a regional partner of MSC Software in Thailand worked closely with the professors to facilitate this launch. Speaking on the announcement, Chaiyarit Oupichit, Managing Director of Sigma Solutions Co., Ltd. said, "Both MSC Nastran and Patran are industry-leading products when it comes to Finite Element Analysis (FEA) solving and pre/post-processing respectively. Learning the optimum way to use these products is important for engineers and students alike, to enable the best use of these products. I am confident that this book will prove valuable to young engineers in Thailand to help them better their skills with these two software products."

Sridhar Dharmarajan, Managing Director, Indo-Pacific Region, MSC Software, said, "Skills development has always been a focus for us at MSC Software. Over the years, books on MSC Nastran and Patran have helped engineers across the globe gain a better understanding and advance application use. We are especially thrilled since this the first book on MSC Software's industry leading products launched in Thailand. I would encourage engineers in Thailand to take advantage of this book to better their skills with MSC Nastran and Patran."

MSC Nastran is the world's most widely used and trusted Finite Element Analysis (FEA) solver and simulates stress, dynamics, or vibration of real-world, complex systems. On the other hand, Patran is the world's most widely used pre/post-processing software for Finite Element Analysis (FEA), providing solid modelling, meshing, analysis setup and post-processing for multiple solvers including MSC Nastran, Marc, Abaqus, LS-DYNA, ANSYS, and Pam-Crash.
