MFAC was founded in 1995 by Dr. Chris Galbraith. We provide engineering software, technical support, and consulting services for mechanical engineering industries.
MFAC is the Canadian distributor for LS-DYNA, a general purpose finite element code. We also sell DYNAFORM, which is a bundled software package incorporating LS-DYNA for conducting sheet forming simulations.
Chris Galbraith worked at Alcan International Ltd. prior to starting up the Metal Forming Analysis Corporation. He has pioneered a number of enhancements for modeling sheet forming which have been included in LS-DYNA. He has presented and lectured extensively on sheet metal forming simulations using LS-DYNA. His work with Alcan on automotive sheet metal stamping simulations garnered two COMPUTERWORLD-SMITHSONIAN AWARD Nominations in the manufacturing category and was selected as one of five finalists in this category in 1995 and 1996.
Dr. Chris Galbraith is a graduate of Mechanical Engineering from Queen's University at Kingston who is licensed to provide consulting services in Mechanical Engineering.
With 25+ years of experience in mechanical engineering, Dr. Galbraith has provided numerous companies with technical expertise aimed at quickly debugging sheet forming operations.
Naganarayanan Meyyappan (Naga) is a Mechanical engineer, specialized in Material science & engineering, who graduated from Concordia University. He has more than 5 years of experience in the field of mechanical design and simulation software in various fields including mechanical, structural, fluid power and electrical.
Before joining MFAC, Naga worked at a world renowned fluid power simulation software company, where they develop fluid power simulation software. He was also involved in setting up a new office in India. He consulted many Fortune 500 companies directly to help them resolve the technical problems through simulation.
