SimAcademy Webinar Archive: A Review of Splining for Aero-Structure Coupling in Aeroelastic Solutions

All aeroelastic solutions require that the structural DOFs and aerodynamic DOFs are coupled so that loads and displacements are transferred between the meshes while preserving equilibrium. In this presentation, we will: Review the various spline types and methods available in MSC/MD Nastran Explain the algorithms and show how splines work. Provide usage guidelines and show some techniques for validating splines using examples and demonstrations.

SimAcademy Webinar Archive: Marc Global-Local Analysis

Local variations, such as geometry changes and mesh refinement, usually need a complete re-analysis of the model. If the changes have a negligible influence on the solution sufficiently far away from the changed region, only a local part can be analyzed using a global-local analysis, which is also called structural zooming. Marc structural zooming capability automates the global-local analysis to achieve a better resolution in local area where stress gradient is high or mesh has to be changed from shell to solid. In the Marc 2010 version, the global-local analysis has been expanded to allow global remeshing.

SimAcademy Webinar Archive: Adams - Vibration Analysis of Full Dynamic Systems

The study of vibration problems of full dynamic systems can be accomplished in different ways. MSC/MD_ADAMS Vibration is one of them; a system is linearized at a selected operating point and a forced vibration analysis is executed to determine the frequency content of the full system and the main vibration modes that are prevalent on the vibration problem being studied.
