We have been using software from the MSC family for about 20 years. As pre- and postprocessors we use Patran and Mentat, as solvers we mainly use Marc and Nastran. For specific applications in the field of hyperelastic calculation of elastomers, the in-house programmed FE program can also be used. In postprocessing we mainly use evaluation routines programmed with Matlab. This allows flexible adaptation to customer-specific requirements. Furthermore, strength evaluations can be carried out that are not part of commercial programs.
