EC Engineering started to cooperate with MSC Software. in the territory of Poland in 2007.
We offer MSC products, training sessions and technical support.
In 1963, MacNeal Schwendler Corporation (MSC) was founded. In 1965, MSC teamed up with NASA and collaboratively developed the first finite element analysis solver called NASTRAN. This technology was used for many mission critical projects including the development of rockets and space exploration technology that helped America successfully land on the moon.
In 1969, MSC announced MSC Nastran, its own commercial version of NASTRAN , which enabled customers outside of NASA to begin using it in production. In 1973, MSC expanded into a global company opening offices around the world. In 1994, the company acquired the Patran technology and began offering pre and post processing user interface solutions for modeling and analysis. The need for nonlinear simulation became critical to many companies, so in 1999, MSC further expanded its portfolio by acquiring the Marc technology, our advanced nonlinear simulation solution used by many companies today.
In 2002, MSC added multibody dynamics to our portfolio with the acquisition of MDI and the Adams technology. With Adams, customers can go beyond simulating stress and strain and build functional virtual prototypes that help understand system level performance in large mechanisms and other moving products like cars and machinery.
In 2009, MSC was acquired by Symphony Technology Group, a private equity company. We went from being a public company to a private company. In 2010, we continued announcing newly developed and innovative multidisciplinary simulation capabilities now part of our core flagship solver solution MSC Nastran. With these new enhancements, customers using MSC Nastran could now go beyond linear statics and dynamics, and study nonlinear and thermal problems as well as perform multidisciplinary simulations and analysis chaining across disciplines using a common model rather than having to build separate models for different types of analyses. This enabled engineers to model and simulate more real world behaviors and loading conditions that their products undergo in everyday use.
And finally, in 2011, MSC added two new products to its portfolio further expanding our solution set. We acquired FFT and its Actran technology so we could provide engineers with acoustics solutions for optimizing noise and perfecting sound in products. We also announced a partnership with Next Limit Technologies and began offering XFlow, an innovative CFD solution for companies who need to simulate fluid dynamics.
