Explicit Structural Analysis using MSC Nastran
During the life cycle, most products experience events that involve rapid loading whose simulation requires users to account for inertia loads, unlike in a quasi-static analysis. Moreover, in order to capture the deformation and stress state of the structure accurately, it becomes necessary to use very short time steps, especially since the events could last only a few milliseconds. MSC Nastran, with its state of the art explicit solver technology from integrated LS-Dyna and Dytran, enables users to simulate real world high-speed events, minimizing the time and money spent on design and experimental testing. Extreme distortions and possible failures that structures may undergo during these events are accurately simulated with MSC Nastran helping users solve problems of crush, crash and impact in aerospace, automotive, consumer products, electronics and other industries. This webinar provides an overview of the explicit analysis capabilities of MSC Nastran along with a demonstration through an example problem.
