Adams-Marc Co-Simulation Provides Efficient and Accurate Method of Simulating Misuse Load Events
SimAcademy Webinar Archive: Patran Fringe Results Processing
This webinar discusses contour results processing in patran and the associated settings in a Fringe plot along with the usage of Patran Ranges and its modification. A small demonstration will be shown on these topics.
SimAcademy Webinar Archive: Bonora Damage Model
Finite element modeling has been widely used to predict the failure. One such technique is a progressive failure analysis (PFA). However the limitation of progressive failure analysis is that it assumes material to be linear elastic up to the point of failure. To deal with failure analysis of ductile materials there are various damage models available in MSC Marc. One such damage model is Bonora model which is used to predict the ductile damage in materials that are subjected to large plastic deformation that typically occurs in manufacturing processes.
SimAcademy Webinar Archive: Contact Pair Modeling – New Approach to Contact Model Setup in Patran 2013 with MSC Nastran 2013.1
Patran 2013 supports the new MSC Nastran 2013.1 contact pair user interface by providing a new Contact Pair Load and Boundary Condition (LBC) graphical user interface. The interface allows users to create contact pairs using individual contact property sets, or re-use existing interface definitions by referencing existing property sets. This capability, along with Patran's global property editing capability, provide a powerful, scalable UI that is suited equally well to creating both individual contact pairs, and large numbers of complex contact pairs, using common properties. Along with the new contact pair user interface is a set of tools that allow users to automatically create contact bodies and contact pairs based on user-defined criteria.
