SimAcademy Webinar Archive: Contact Verification using MSC Nastran and Patran

This webinar shows how to use contact verification methods such as contact status, glue MPCs, contact forces and Gap-Overlap check available in MSC Nastran and Patran.

SimAcademy Webinar Archive: Base Shake (Single Input) and Multi-Input loading in frequency domain fatigue

Frequency domain methods now exist to enable the durability assessment to be undertaken fully in the frequency domain. Most dynamic analysts prefer to work in the so-called frequency domain where loads are defined as a function of frequency usually as Power Spectral Densities (PSD). Utilizing the most advanced and efficient analysis tool like CAEfatigue. We will explore Base Shake (Single Input) and Multi-Input type of loading in the frequency domain with CAEfatigue.

SimAcademy Webinar Archive : Prediction of residual warpage of CFRP based on a ICME approach

In this session, we will learn how Digimat can help to anticipate residual warpage after the cure cycle simulation of a continuous fibre reinforced epoxy. We will describe the material model of the resin and how this one is combined with the reinforcement to compute homogenized properties applied at the lamina level.

SimAcademy Webinar Archive: Simulating with FMI Interface

This session of SimAcademy will examine the application of Adams/Controls using FMI interface. The model exchange and co-simulation modes will then be discussed with tips, tricks and recommendations.

SimAcademy Webinar Archive: Non-linear Buckling Analysis using SOL 400

During this session you will learn - Buckling Phenomenon, Linear Buckling Analysis overview, Nonlinear buckling overview, Linear Vs Non-linear, Nonlinear Buckling in SOL 400.

SimAcademy Webinar Archive: Anisotropic Material Cards. Automatic Reverse Engineering for Fiber Reinforced Plastics

This webinar will expose how the new ISO to ANISO automatic reverse engineering capability, released in Digimat 2021.1, can increase availability of material cards, and how it compares to experiment.

SimAcademy Webinar Archive: Investigation of the Creation of a Response Spectrum Curve

This presentation will dive specifically into understanding what a Response Spectrum curve represents and how it is generated, with some emphasis on basic dynamic principles.

SimAcademy Webinar Archive: User Defined Services (UDS) capability in MSC Nastran

This introductory presentation will cover: Overview of User Defined Services and its usage in MSC Nastran, Installation requirements, Demonstration of the build-process workflow, DRESP3 service build and usage in an optimization run.

We will go through the below topics to get a complete overview of the process: Demonstration of Hex meshing on Crankshaft Model, Run Modal Analysis with Hex Mesh, Run Modal Analysis with same mesh size using Tet Mesh, Compare results.

SimAcademy Webinar Archive: Experimental Data Fitting for Creep and Cyclic Hardening Material Models in MSC Nastran and Marc

This webinar will be focused on experimental data fitting for creep model and cyclic hardening model used in MSC Nastran and Marc.

SimAcademy Webinar Archive: MSC Nastran Coupled Thermo Mechanical Analysis using Patran

Topics for this session include: 1.How to access multi-physic GUI in Patran using SOL 400, 2.How do we use these features, 3.What is the required users input?, 4.Output interpretations and Discussions.

SimAcademy Webinar Archive: Introduction to MSC Apex Customization

Here in this SimAcademy webinar discussion, we will get to know about MSC Apex customization features.

SimAcademy Webinar Archive: Topology Optimization for Additive Manufacturing

Following two options for Topology optimization with focus on additive manufacturing are addressed. A demo model using MSC Nastran Topology for AM alongside Apex Generative Design is demonstrated.

SimAcademy Webinar Archive: Contact Modeling in Adams – Contact Parameters and Integrator Settings for Rigid and Flex Body Contact

The CONTACT statement in Adams is used to model impacts between bodies within a larger MBD simulation. This unilateral force has a zero value when there is no penetration between the geometries and has a positive value when penetration does exist. The CONTACT statement supports multiple contact types, dynamic friction, 3D solid geometries, 2D geometries and flexible bodies.

SimAcademy Webinar Archive: Overview of the Modules

Module is a standalone Bulk Data section typically representing a component of an overall assembly. Modules are analogous to part superelements without reduction. Modules allow the user to assemble multiple Bulk Data sections to form a single MSC Nastran input file. Modules offer a complete range of flexibility to the user when it comes to defining connections to a Module. In this webinar we will discuss use and importance of different bulk data entries used to define modules. We will see different options available to post process the modules results. In this webinar we will discuss how to define modules and how to set up analysis file for Nastran using modules approach. This session is NOT a substitute for formal training, many more options and scenarios available with modules.
