A series of advanced NX Nastran solution capabilities are available as add-on modules to Femap, providing engineering desktop solutions for even the most advanced Nastran analysis.
Within Femap it is possible to directly define and control most aspects of the NX Nastran simulation including solution options, specific job controls, load and constraint definition, model checking, and detailed result generation requests.
A comprehensive range of add-on modules allows the product to be configured to provide the functionality you need, allowing for great flexibility and scalability extending to the most advanced types of analysis that are able to handle the toughest engineering problems. NX Nastran modules include:
Provides all of the capabilities that you will need in many instances, including linear statics, normal modes, buckling, steady-state and transient heat transfer, basic nonlinear, design sensitivity and unlimited problem size capabilities.
Enables product performance to be evaluated in both the time and frequency domains.
Determine optimal design parameters with sizing optimization capabilities.
Facilitates large deformation; supports nonlinear materials, time-dependent loads, deformable and rigid contact. Provides nonlinear time integration for impact analysis.
Predicts the dynamic response of rotating systems such as shafts, turbines and propellers to determine critical shaft speeds.
Superelements play a key role when solving very large and complex finite element models by decomposing larger structures into equivalent sets of smaller substructures.
Direct matrix abstraction programming (DMAP) is a unique Nastran programming capability that allows customers to expand NX Nastran capabilities by writing their own applications and installing custom modules.
Determine structural response from aerodynamic loading for static and flutter conditions.
