"To cater to a growing Linux-using customer base, the world's most widely used finite element analysis (FEA) program, MSC.Nastran, has converted to the Linux operating system."

"MSC.Nastran is the world's leading finite element analysis (FEA) software. This powerful tool for virtual manufacturing is used in almost every industry -- from aerospace to biomechanical devices -- to model and analyze designs on computer before building expensive physical prototypes."

"The software has a wide range of applications: from analyzing the effects of impact on an aluminum car door, to replicating panel flutter effects on a space vehicle; from simulating the implantation of a miniature cardiac defribulator into a human heart, to analyzing the heat created by a V16 train engine. Virtual manufacturing with MSC. Nastran gives accurate FEA results that will not only save manufacturers money in the design process, but impact the enviroment positively -- fewer "real world" mistakes, less waste."
