A nonlinear FEA program, Marc enables you to assess the structural integrity and performance of parts undergoing large permanent deformations as a result of thermal or structural load. The types of deformations the program can study include geometric nonlinearities (metals bending) and material nonlinearities (elastomers and metals that yield under structural or thermal loading). You can also use Marc to simulate deformable, part-to-part or part-to-self contact under varying conditions that include the effects of friction—critical for analyzing nonlinear behavior in tool-and-die set-up, spring coil clash, or a windshield wiper system. And whether you are designing with glass, rubber, steel, or concrete, Marc offers an extensive library of metallic and non-metallic material models, along with a library of 175 elements for structural, thermal, and fluid analysis.
