Optimizing to Account for Multiple, Related Designs in MSC Nastran
Accounting for the response of multiple design variants in a design optimization task, coupled with the ability to affect the design properties of all variants simultaneously, allows a combined optimization task to account for the dissimilar but related model behaviors. Encapsulating this capability into an integrated environment allows rapid study of multiple model configurations while satisfying the design requirements of all concerned variants.
Thermomechanical coupling analysis using MSC Nastran
When heat is generated due to plastic deformation or due to friction between components, it becomes important to solve these problems accounting for the coupled physics to achieve improved accuracy. Applications like turbine blades that are subjected to high temperatures and brakes that experience heat generation due to friction benefit from thermomechanical coupling analysis capability of MSC Nastran. This webinar focuses on the capabilities of MSC Nastran and some of the applications that can be addressed by this powerful functionality.
Optimization for Improved Designs
Irrespective of the engineering discipline one is involved in, one of the main difficulties facing the engineer or the designer is to determine how to get the maximum benefit out of the resources available. The problem is made further complicated by multitude and often conflicting design requirements which need to be met. Optimization capabilities in MSC Nastran are designed to assist with these decisions and obtain an optimized design. MSC Nastran offers extensive optimization functionality, including Sizing, Shape, Topology, Topometry, and Topography Optimization methods. These capabilities allow engineers to efficiently improve the design of complex structures for multidisciplinary environment. This webinar will highlight the optimization capabilities available in MSC Nastran. Watch this webcast to...

Fluid-Structure Interaction for Better Designs
Products need to be designed and analyzed with better accuracy in the highly competitive engineering world. Accounting for Fluid-Structure Interaction (FSI), which is the interaction between a movable or deformable structure with an internal or surrounding fluid flow, has become more important to understand the real environment and boundary conditions surrounding structures. FSI can provide more accurate boundary condition definitions, and help engineers understand the product response better, leading to improved designs. MSC Nastran can be used in multiple FSI simulations ranging from short dynamic to long duration events. MSC Nastran includes built-in state of the art implicit nonlinear and explicit nonlinear solvers and support for OpenFSI, a coupling service to connect to external fluid analysis software. This webinar provides an overview of the FSI analysis capabilities of MSC Nastran along with demonstrations using example test cases.
