MSC Software Corporation, the leader in multidiscipline simulation solutions that accelerate product innovation, announced the new release of Sinda 2013, advanced thermal analysis system. This release has been upgraded to support the latest FlexLM license manager, and a few small bugs were fixed.
Sinda is a thermal analyzer that has been extensively used in a wide range of successful space programs including Astra, ERS 1-2, Gomos, Mars Express, Silex, Soho, and across multiple industries including Aerospace, Automotive, and Electronics.
Sinda uses a conductor-capacitor network representation approach to thermal analysis that offers numerous benefits when solving thermal problems. Sinda goes beyond other solutions by also providing a powerful thermal programming language, enabling engineers to construct complex thermal scenarios that would otherwise be difficult or impossible with other analyzers.
The flexibility of Sinda is extended even more with integration to a wide number of thermal modeling tools including Patran, SimXpert, SindaRad, THERMICA, Thermal Studio and Visio.
New Feature Summary
SINDA 2013 for Patran Translator and Patran GUI
- Environment Simulation Module – Comprehensive GUI was added to Patran to allow for realistic solar heating simulations on the Earth using Sinda
and Thermica. These simulations use a US government worldwide weather database to model realistic terrestrial solar heating, including effects of
cloudiness, convection, and both direct & diffuse solar heating. Applications include some of the following.
- Designing solar heated/cooled houses or buildings
- Electronic equipment exposed the environment
- Aircraft on a runway to size the ECS system and also to determine temperate of composite surfaces
- Spacecraft inside a launch vehicle on pad
- Thermica Integration (version 4.5.3 and later). Using Thermica v4 with Sinda/Patran is now much more automated and includes batch capabilities.
When the analysis type is steady state and the control constant OUTPUT = 0.0, the CYC option will now result in time-averaged values in lieu of time
interpolated values. The PER option already behaves this way. The CYC option use a single array of doublet pairs, and the PER option uses 2 singlet arrays,
but are otherwise the same. The CYC option occurs in 3 places: boundary node temperature, source data, and conductor data.
64 and 32bit versions of Sinda 2013
64 bit version of the software that runs on XP-64 or Windows 7 64 bit computes and can run very large models as compared to previous versions of Sinda.
Not only is the math all done in 64 bit, but this version takes full advantage of the memory (RAM) and uses virtual memory on your computer and is not limited to 2GB as previous 32 bit versions of Sinda were. Also includes 32 bit version that will run on both 64 bit computers and 32 bit computers.
To run the 32 and 64 bit versions of Sinda 2013 using the Fortran option, Intel Fortran 10.0 or later is required. Version 9.1 will work with the 32 bit version of Sinda 2013, but not the 64 bit version.
