Marc Student Edition

Advanced Nonlinear & Multiphysics

Marc Student Edition

Marc combines to deliver a complete solution (pre-processing, solution, and post-processing) for implicit nonlinear FEA. Marc provides the easiest to use and most robust capabilities for contact, large strain, and multiphysics analysis available today to solve static and quasi-static nonlinear problems.

Marc has no such limitations. Built from its first day to solve nonlinear problems, Marc uses advanced mathematics and FE technology to consistently obtain converged solutions for highly nonlinear problems involving nonlinear materials, large strain and displacement, and contact. Marc also incorporates serious multiphysics capabilities, enabling engineers to simulate situations involving coupling between structures, thermal, fluid, acoustics, electrical, and magnetics.

  • MAR120 : Basic Nonlinear Analysis using Marc and Patran

    32 hours – Online Self-Paced Course
    Course Materials, Workshops and Model Files

    About this Course:
    MAR120 covers the use of Marc and Patran or AFEA (the interlocked combination of Patran and Marc) for the solution of complex engineering problems. Students who successfully complete this course will be able to: create finite element models representing nonlinear physical phenomena; select appropriate element types and mesh densities; understand the limitations of solving nonlinear FEA problems; select solution types for various nonlinear phenomena such as nonlinear dynamics, metal forming, elastomers, and contact problems; select error tolerance parameters and properly use automatic time-stepping techniques; and understand the basis of large deformation, rotation, and strain finite element analysis. Patran provides a Marc Preference which directly supports most Marc features and indirectly supports all Marc features. MSC customers that have been using Advanced FEA (which is replaced by AFEA) for meeting their analysis needs will find this new Marc Preference to be the ideal environment to continue their work. They are especially encouraged to attend this course. All the class practice (16 exercises) is made using Patran and Marc rather than Marc and Mentat. Engineers who have attended the MAR101 and MAR102 will also benefit from attending this class if they intend to use the Patran Marc Preference.

  • MAR121 : Advanced Nonlinear Analysis using Marc and Patran

    Course Materials, Workshops and Model Files

    About this Course:
    The purpose of this course is to enhance the current Marc user's understanding of modeling nonlinear problems. Lectures are supported by hands-on modeling of nonlinear problems.
