Marc is an advanced nonlinear multi-physics solver that enables you to predict the behavior of materials and prevent failures from occurring for complex structures in automotive, aerospace, high-tech and life sciences applications. Model nonlinear material behavior such as plasticity, hyper elasticity, and creep as well as contact and geometric nonlinearities.
The robust nonlinear finite element analysis (FEA) solver accurately predicts design performance in nominal and/or severe environments.
Take advantage of the extensive library of material models for metals, elastomeric (rubber) materials, plastics and composites to analyze linear elastic, plastic, hyper elastic materials, viscoelastic materials, creep, temperature dependencies and much more.
Robust contact algorithms handle contact behavior and small/large sliding contact with friction for all material models available in Marc.
Model nonlinear geometric effects like follower forces and tension stiffening effects. Buckling and snap-through behaviour is accounted for.
Capture manufacturing effects (sheet metal forming, forging, welding, machining, etc.) natively in the Marc solver or import them from other Hexagon software tools like Simufact and Digimat.
Marc includes an extensive library of user subroutines for proprietary material models.
Marc is the only commercial solution with robust manufacturing and product testing simulation, with the ability to predict damage, failure, and crack propagation. Combined with its multiphysics capabilities that help you couple thermal, electrical, magnetic, and structural analyses, Marc is the complete solution to address all your nonlinear simulation requirements.
Features of Marc include:
Simulate interactions between multiple components in highly nonlinear events with Marc’s superior and intuitive contact modelling.
Benefit from a comprehensive set of fracture, fatigue, and failure models, to study the degradation and failure of metals, concrete, composites, and elastomers.
Robust re-meshing, local adaptivity and mesh coarsening help you to simulate complex nonlinear events.
An extensive library of metallic and non-metallic material models and a collection of over 200 elements for multiple disciplinary analyses lets you accurately model your materials to fit experimental data.
