Introduction to Nastran Grounding and Groundchecks

Date March 17th 2020

time 1 p.m. EDT

Learn more about what grounding is and why a groundcheck should be completed before every analysis.

Grounding occurs when a finite element model cannot move without straining, whether because of constraints or because of bad element quality, poorly defined connections, or matrix ill-conditioning. A Nastran groundcheck performs a series of rigid body translations and rotations to determine whether grounding is present. This webinar will share possible causes of grounding, steps to request a groundcheck, and how to interpret the results.

A Q&A session will follow the presentation.
