Experiment with Pre-built Patran & MSC Nastran Models

Horizontal spacer

Jump-start your use of Patran and MSC Nastran by using these pre-built finite element model (FEM) files. Click any of the titles below to download the associated zipped Patran session (.ses) file, then unzip that file and import it into Patran to run the script which automatically builds that FEM. Simulate each FEM using MSC Nastran as your solver and experiment further in Patran to learn more about how these mechanical components work. You can also edit these ASCII session files to better understand how to build your own scripts for Patran.
