4 To 20 Times Faster Acoustic Simulations: Solve High Frequency and Big Domain Problems in Less Time

SimAcademy Webinar: Flexible Body Usage and Interactions Between MSC Nastran and Adams

A Modal Neutral File (MNF) is a conduit to take reduced model information produced via component modes analysis into multibody dynamics program such as MSC Adams. The modal information obtained from MNF file is used in a multibody dynamics simulation to represent a flexible body. This presentation will attempt to describe the details necessary to accomplish this.

SimAcademy Webinar: The F06Reader Utility Introduction and Usage for MSC Nastran

F06 Reader 2016 is an MSC Team effort to read Nastran output text files and produce a friendlier, modern and more useful format of important Nastran information. The intent with this tool is to display information, help the user diagnose problems and link to additional resources. At this time it is not intended to retrieve and perform user defined calculations with the data.

SimAcademy Webinar Archive: Nonlinear Solution Setup Highlights Using SOL400 in MSC Nastran and Patran

SOL 400 is a set of application modules in the MSC Nastran system that pairs the full features of MSC Nastran with the advanced nonlinear capabilities. More and more companies are using sol400 for their nonlinear analysis needs. In a nonlinear problem, the stiffness of the structure depends on the displacement, and the response is no longer a linear function of the load applied. As a result, nonlinear problems require incremental solution schemes that divide the problem up into steps calculating the displacement, then updating the stiffness. This presentation is to help users setup and be successful at getting the first converged solution faster.

SimAcademy Webinar: Frequency Response Usage in Nastran and Patran

Frequency response analysis is a method that allows users to analyze a structure’s response to a steady- state oscillatory excitation. In this type of analysis the excitation is explicitly defined in the frequency domain. The structure is subjected to an oscillatory sinusoidal loading with an amplitude at a specific frequency. Similarly the response occurs at the same frequency as the loading. Examples of oscillatory excitation include rotating machinery, unbalanced tires and helicopter blades.
