MSC Nastran / MD Nastran Unification The MSC Nastran 2012 release includes the unification of the MD brand and the MSC brand of the Nastran products into a single MSC Nastran brand. Your existing xisting license files will work with this release. In some cases, additional license features will be required to access some of the new capabilities. Upon obtaining updated license features, existing MSC base users will have access to the following additional capabilities: Linear Contact (Includes Glued and Touching Contact) Local Adaptive Meshing for Linear Analysis Linear Composite Beam Those users who have an MSC license with Dynamics access will now have access to the FRF/FBA capabilities. Enterprise Advantage Users will continue to see a reduction in the number of tokens consumed when running MSC Nastran versus MD Nastran for jobs, such as: (Please note this is only a partial list.) Linear Statics Linear Dynamics Dynamics with Optimization Jobs using any of the following capabilities will continue to draw at equivalent MD Nastran rates. Token consumption values for these features under MSC Nastran are shown in the parentheses. The MSC Nastran Base will continue to consume 250 tokens. Linear Contact (78) SOL 400 Implicit NL (153) SOL 700 Explicit NL (39 for the Explicit Translator) Multi-Model Optimization (78)

The MSC Nastran 2012 release also includes support for use of a GPU for parallel processing. This capability is available as an optional module for MSC Nastran seat customers and will be included in the tokens system with a consumption of 50 tokens when used. Other changes with this release include a tiered token consumption rate for the MSC Nastran SOL 600 DDM. The following rates will apply based on the number of cores being used. 2nd core 3rd and 4th cores th th 5 through 8 cores th 9 through 16 th cores th nd 17 through 32 core 33rd core and above = 40 tokens = 25 tokens per core = 15 tokens per core = 12 tokens per core = 9 tokens per core = 6 tokens per core
