MASTA 9 is now available from SMT.

SMT, a globally integrated leader in mechanical transmission engineering services and software development, recently announced the next major software release. Available immediately for all users and evaluators, this latest release builds on previous versions and includes several innovative enhancements. Areas of new or revised functionality include the following:

Gear Whine/Harmonic Excitation Analysis

•New results available including airborne sound power for a full FE component

•Interface improvements to allow more flexibility in the results shown, including showing the response at multiple locations on one plot

•Export of operating deflection shapes that can directly be used in acoustic analysis packages

•Display of operating deflection shapes in 3D view

Shaft FE Meshing

•Create a detailed FE model using the shaft geometry defined in MASTA.

•Includes all cylindrically symmetric features such as fillets

Bearing Clearance at Mounting Points

•Automatically add mounting clearance if it occurs due to fitting and thermal effects

Flexible Spline Coupling

•New spline contact type to model each flank contact

•Simple setup process for FE nodes

CVT Model Improvements

•Define separate fixed and moving sheaves

•Include axial forces on sheaves

In addition to these, many other small functionality and user interface improvements from previously included features are also available.
