NAS123 - Implicit Nonlinear Analysis using MSC Nastran (SOL600)

Horizontal spacer

This seminar presents how to perform implicit nonlinear analysis using MSC Nastran SOL600. MSC Nastran SOL600 is the nonlinear capabilities of Marc delivered in an MSC Nastran user interface. SOL600 provides FEA capability for the analysis of 3D contact and highly nonlinear problems.
