MSC: Nastran 2017

  • Monday, 10 April 2017 00:00

The Nastran 2017 has various new features. The embedded fatigue tool helps assess the expected life of their designs without exporting simulation data into other post-processing software.

The automated component mode synthesis’ parallel modal analysis tool will also be able to include superelements into the analysis. Additionally, engineers now need 20 to 30 percent less memory to process solid element models.

Rotodynamics analysis for 2D and 3D assessment of rotors has also been improved by incorporating mass and speed correction terms. Structural damping will also be able to be incorporated when assessing complex eigenvalues or frequency responses.

Other improvements include non-parametric variability method to assess acoustics between 300 Hz and 1,500 Hz with a Monte-Carlo simulation, topology optimisation that accounts for stress constraints, and multi-processor computations of eigenvalues.
