This update shows developments in bearing functionalities, NVH advancements, scripting features and more:

A summary of some of the main features of MASTA 10.2 include:

  • New Module MC131 – ISO Cylindrical Gear Tooth Flank Fracture Analysis
  • New Module MC132 – Crossed Roller Bearings
  • New Module MG301 – COBRA Interface – Export MASTA bearing geometry and load conditions to the bearing analysis software COBRA
  • NVH – Improved performance, added calculation results and enhanced useability features
  • Bearings – Fitting effects for bearings interference fitted into sleeves. Overriding dynamic equivalent load factors. Updated SKF catalogue.
  • Scripting – License management using the MASTA API. Saving custom property values in the MASTA file
  • License management using the Licensing Tool application

Full details and official release notes can be accessed via the SMT Portal or please contact your local Account Manager or SMT representative for further information.

SMT is also preparing for the launch of their next major software release, MASTA 11, coming soon. This major release will include multiple enhancements that ensure that SMT remain at the forefront in providing cutting edge technology solutions to an ever-increasing array of users. MASTA has always had an extremely user-friendly interface, MASTA 11 will add further useability features for enhanced, efficient model building. Improvements to gear analysis will include design and analysis functionality for asymmetric cylindrical gears, including our state-of-the-art Loaded Tooth Contact Analysis. A brand new, innovative, NVH solution will be introduced for the analysis of NVH phenomenon where modulation sidebands occur due to changing stiffness and transfer paths in, for example, gear blanks with holes and planetary systems. A new high-fidelity cycloidal drive design and analysis tool will be available for the advanced design and analysis of standard and RV cycloidal drives. Together with many other new features and enhancements.
