Strand Group CAE team is jointly led by an advance level MSC Nastran and Patran user (25 years experience) and an Airbus technical signatory (>10 years experience)

Strand’s CAE team has a wealth of experience working on both linear and non-linear analysis with CAE tools such as MSC Nastran/Patran (4 seats), Abaqus, Ansys and FEMAP.

MSC Software technology currently used at Strand include Patran for pre- and post-processing and MSC Nastran for structural analysis, both of which are used by engineers as a result of becoming broadly accepted tools for linear and multidisciplinary analysis within the aerospace and aviation industry.

Strand has performed Finite Element Analysis(FEA) with Nastran and Patran on the following projects:
i. Airbus A380-800 Fixed leading Edge Composite Panels.
ii. Bombardier C Series/Mitsubishi Regional Jet Thrust Reverser Components.
iii. A350-900 Fuselage Flight Test Installation.
