SimAcademy Webinar Archive: Doing it Explicitly - Introduction to Explicit Analysis and Capabilities of SOL700
Finite Element Analysis (FEA) problem involving non-linearity can be solved by either implicit or explicit solution technique. Finite Element Analysis (FEA) involving simulating short-time large deformation problems such as complex contact/impact problem are solved by explicit solution technique. SOL700 is a powerful explicit solver of MSC Nastran which is based on Dytran+LS-Dyna module. So it offers combined advantages of both Dytran & LS-Dyna. The present webinar will talk about basics of explicit analysis, where to use it & the capabilities of SOL700.
How to Find Cross Section Properties in Patran for Complex Shape
Customer would like to use Patran to calculate cross section properties for arbitrary shapes... but in particular, where there is a 'hole' in the cross section. This is more difficult than the standard shapes, so a brief recording is provided to lay out the steps and considerations.
