MSC.Software announced the acquisition of Arizona-based Network Analysis, Inc. (NAI), a global innovator of thermal simulation software and the developers of the SINDA/G™ advanced thermal modeling software. This acquisition, complete with all of NAI’s expert technical staff, allows continuity of NAI’s business while concurrently complementing MSC.Software’s development organization.
SINDA/G is a robust thermal design program comprised of a proven thermal solver that can quickly solve large complex nonlinear thermal models involving temperature-dependent thermal properties, radiation, and orthotropic material properties. It comes with specialty connections to major thermal radiation codes such as THERMICA, NEVADA, TRASYS, TSS and NAI’s radiation solver SINDARad, letting you include critical orbital heating effects in satellite simulations that can be chained with subsequent thermal and stress predictions. In addition, the software comes with plug-ins for seamless integration into existing thermal modeling environments.
When combined with MSC.Software’s P/Thermal, Marc thermal and Nastran thermal, the SINDA/G thermal programs help serve multi-billion dollar market segments including jet engines. Furthermore, this relationship opens access to such thermal markets as mechatronics and electronics cooling, as well as commercial and defense satellites.
