"[The software] applies physics to [computer-aided drafting]
models to test for stress, thermal dynamics and fluid flow," Evans
That technology can help engineers simulate scenarios like a car
crash or a bird flying into a jet engine, he said.
The software will primarily be used for mechanical and aerospace
engineering applications. MSC.Software designs engineering software
to simulate real-world situations on design models before production.
Over the past 15 years, Evans said, the company has made donations
totaling $13 million to UCI and hired numerous graduates.
"We want to make sure that talent pool is ready for the work
force," he said.
