SimAcademy Webinar Archive: Application of Fatigue Utilities in MSC Fatigue
Fatigue occurs when a material is subjected to cyclic loading. MSC.Fatigue has extensive capabilities to carry out fatigue analysis using different approaches including Stress life (S-N) and Strain life (e-N). Fatigue analysis results are affected by many input parameters. Utilities in MSC.Fatigue help to simplify the setup and control of these input parameters.
SimAcademy Webinar Archive: Usage of Test-Correlation Tool (MSC ProCOR) Within Patran
Test correlation tool is an analytical tool for performing mathematical modal correlation of eigenvectors between two different analytical models or analytical to test data. The tool uses DMAP Alters to alter the solution sequence and perform additional calculations in support of correlation for modal analysis using MSC Nastran Solution 103. The correlation quantities are written to op2 files which can be read back into Patran using the op2 read special tab through test correlation tool.
SimAcademy Webinar Archive: Templates and Plot Sets in Patran
Templates and Plot Sets are Patran Tools to automate the creation of results plots. Templates ensure that plots throughout an entire project or across a group have a consistent format and look, and allow to user to easily re-use a complicate plot format. Plot Sets allow the automatic generation and export of dozens if not hundreds of result plots, and produce a huge savings of time and effort if many different loads cases need to be documented and compared.
