GPU-accelerated engineering simulation application to enable highest quality products for aerospace and other mission critical fields

14 Dec 2011 Beijing - MSC Software Corporation, an expert in multi-discipline simulation software solutions, has launched a GPU-accelerated version of the MSC Nastran 2012, Finite Element Analysis (FEA) application, which is used in a wide range of engineering simulation tasks.

The new GPU-accelerated MSC Nastran 2012, available for both Windows and Linux systems, delivers performance improvements of up to 5x compared with the previous version. Users will benefit from more realistic models and higher quality simulations, opening the door to design breakthroughs for aircraft and spacecraft, and for a range of other mission critical systems.

"GPU-enabled performance improvements have the potential to transform engineering analysis and design-optimization procedures", stated Dr. Ted Wertheimer, senior director of product management at MSC Software. "CUDA-based GPU acceleration in MSC Nastran 2012 will speed up performance by 1.5-5x for a range of models and industries, helping customers improve their work flow and deliver better products to market, faster."

Design engineers using models with predominantly solid elements - such as the simulation of engine structures - can capitalize on the improved performance by introducing more complexity and realism into their models, leading to more accurate simulations and ultimately higher quality, and safer product designs.

"With support for single- and multi-GPU acceleration, MSC Nastran 2012 allows users to significantly reduce simulation turnaround times, create more high-fidelity simulations, and improve design quality", stated Andrew Cresci, general manager of strategic alliances at NVIDIA. "We are expanding our joint development with MSC to include GPU acceleration of complex math kernels, allowing us to address NVH and large dynamics problems for our customers."

MSC Nastran 2012 supports single- and multi-GPU configurations and is available today for MSC customers to download.
