Marc is a powerful, general-purpose, nonlinear finite element analysis solution to accurately simulate the response of the products under static, dynamic and multi-physics loading scenarios.
It provides the unparalleled capability for both manufacturing and product development problems in a single modeling environment, with one solver.
Nonlinear and Multiphysics Solution
Marc, optimized for various types of analysis to deliver comprehensive, robust solution schemes to solve problems spanning the entire product lifespan, including manufacturing process simulation, design performance analysis, service load performance and failure analysis. These include:
Nonlinear analysis that incorporates all forms of nonlinearities (Material, geometric, boundary condition including contact)
Coupled thermomechanical analysis
Manufacturing processes like sheet metal forming, hydroforming, extrusion, blow molding, welding, quenching, curing, cutting etc.
Electrostatics and Magneto statics coupled with structural response
Investigate interaction between multiple components with Marc's superior and intuitive contact modeling capability.
Set up a contact model easily in 1-D, 2-D or 3-D, analyze and visualize the ever-changing component interaction.
Gain modeling efficiency by avoiding the need for additional contact elements, contact pairs or slave-master definitions.
Set up and investigate self-contact without additional modeling effort.
Analyze effects of friction and related material changes with ease.
Engineer can choose from an extensive library of metallic and non-metallic material models, and a collection of over 200 elements for structural, thermal, Multiphysics and fluid analyses to accurately model the materials used in your designs.
