A lot of research has gone into the latest version of the non-linear finite-element analysis software from Marc, the Marc K7.1 solver and Mentat 3.1 modeller and post-processor. The software is particularly focused on solving non-linear problems found in in areas such as metal forming operations, deformation of elastomers, buckling analysis, thermal studies and biomechanics simulation.
The company asked (prospective) customers, technical advisory boards and industry user meetings what they wanted and have come up with several new capabilities. While making the procedures for representing contact between parts more robust they have tackled factors such as stick-slip friction, thermal flow, heat generation, rigid surfaces and the geometric description of rigid surface.
