LARGEST OFFSHORE WIND FARM experiment was simulated using MSC Nastran. The record stood for 20 years and was only recently broken using the same methodology from the first experiment.

HUMAN TONGUE MODEL
The SQUID is a remote spike strip that helps cops end car chases by stopping fugitives in their tracks. Commissioned by the Department of Homeland Security, the life-saving device was modeled and tested by ESACORP with MSC’s Dytran. See how the SQUID ends car chases
