SimAcademy Webinar Archive: An Introduction to Buckling Analysis Using MSC Nastran and Patran
Buckling is a critical state of stress and deformation, at which a slight disturbance causes a gross additional deformation, or perhaps a total structural failure of the part. Structural behavior of the part near or beyond 'buckling' is not evident from the normal static Analysis. Therefore, a Buckling analysis is required. Also, From an FE analysis point of view, a buckling analysis is used to find the lowest multiplication factor for the load that will cause a structure to buckle. The purpose of such an analysis is to calculate the buckling load factor and buckled shape of the structure.. This webinar will introduce various methods of performing Buckling Analysis in MSC Nastran and Patran.
