MSI Solutions 



This solution provides prediction of steady state and transient fluid structure interaction under fluid loads, thermal loads, structural deflection, vibration, and dynamic effects.

Distance Communication Maintenance System

Distance Communication Maintenance System (DCoMS)

DCoMS is the eyes and ears of remote field-based troubleshooting, where secure multiple video feeds, two-way audio and text enable remote and rapid problem resolution.


Galvanic Corrosion ANSYS® Module

This module uses CAD and FEA models to output galvanic corrosion couples, alerting designers to potential corrosion, and enabling design iterations to avoid corrosion problems.

Failure Detection Hardware

GSX™ Blade Failure Detection Hardware and Software

MSI’s patented non-contacting (microwave radar) stress measurement system (NSMS) provides accurate blade vibration, stress, and failure detection for gas and steam turbine blades.
