ERJ staff report (DS)
Santa Ana, California - Semperit AG Holding has bought MSC Software's Marc nonlinear and multiphysics solution, and is converting to the MasterKey Plus licence system. Semperit AG uses finite element (FE) software to examine material deformations, optimise surfaces and improve the properties of product components, especially in rubber.
Semperit uses Marc primarily for optimising component geometries. Its engineers are especially interested in the maximum stresses and equivalent strains that occur during product use. Another key motivation for using Marc is the reduction of development costs. In some cases, Marc is used to reduce the use of materials for the product, and to investigate different scenarios including stress states of hydraulic hoses, sealing profile behavior or the component load of conveyor belts.
