Introduction to Femap with NX Nastran: Analyzing a Bracket Assembly

This tutorial outlines how to use a number of Femap’s core capabilities.

Concepts that are covered include:

  • Importing and simplifying geometry
  • Generating mid-surfaces and preparing geometry for meshing
  • Creating materials and various properties(shell, solid, and beam)
  • Meshing with quad and tetrahedral elements, checking mesh quality, and using mesh controls to adjust the mesh
  • Applying constraints and bearing loads
  • Creating a connection property, defining regions of contact, and applying the connection to the model
  • Analyzing and post-processing the deformation of the model.
