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.

SimAcademy Webinar Archive: Hexahedral Meshing Using 2.5D Meshing Tool in MSC Apex

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.

SimAcademy Webinar Archive: Power Tools for Adams Customization

This webinar presents a Macro Organizer Plugin for Adams View that users can download from the MSC SimCompanion website. Specifically, this plugin makes it easy to organize and extend Adams View functionality with user-written macros.

SimAcademy Webinar Archive: Contact Modeling in Adams – Detailed Analysis of Contact Parameters and Integrator Settings

The CONTACT statement in Adams is used to model collisions 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 and 2D geometries.

SimAcademy Webinar Archive: Inherent Strain Approach in Marc

This SimAcademy webinar discussion will be on using a different approach to such simulations, based on inherent strains (which contain the summation of the thermal strains, plastic strains, creep strains and phase transformation strains). Using inherent strains, the analysis reduces to an elastic structural analysis, which is much faster than its coupled Thermal/Structural counterpart.

SimAcademy Webinar Archive: Modal Stress Recovery using Adams Durability & Distributed Loads for Linear Flexible Bodies in Adams

A Modal Neutral File (MNF) is a conduit to take reduced model information produced via component modes analysis into multibody dynamics (MBD) software such as MSC Adams. The modal information obtained from an MNF file is used in the MBD software to represent flexibility. This presentation will attempt to describe this process.

SimAcademy Webinar Archive: Advanced Options in Superelements

In this webinar we will discuss MSC Nastran’s advance option to define superelements and how to set up superelement problem for Nastran. This session is NOT a substitute for formal training, many more options and scenarios available with superelements.

SimAcademy Webinar Archive: Isosurfaces in Patran's Insight Tool

Patran’s Insight is an interactive results postprocessing tool that complements Patran’s core Results application. It has been a fixture of the program for a long time. In the 2019 version of Patran, it was ported to the new QT Interface. In this short webinar, we will cover some of the basics of Insight, but we will focus the discussion primarily on Isosurfaces, one of its most useful tools.

SimAcademy Webinar Archive: Modules Instantiation in MSC Nastran

This webinar discusses how Modules can be used to create multiple instances of a primary Module with a process called Module Instantiation. Modules are created to reduce the reliance on the preprocessor for copying, translating, rotating or mirroring an existing primary Module. The enhanced MSC Nastran interface will be demonstrated with a very simple flat plate model which shows how pre-processor modelling time is reduced. Finally, the pros and cons of this approach will be discussed.
