NASTRAN is a method of finite element analysis, originally developed by NASA of the US. It is an industry standard for over 40 years. It is used to analyze stress, vibration, structured failure, heat transfer, acoustics, and aeroelasticity analyzer. NX Nastran, a simulation solution created by Siemens PLM Software, is widely used in aerospace, automotive, electronics, heavy machinery, medical device and other industries to build safe, reliable and optimized designs with increasingly shorter design cycles.
Why you should learn NX Nastran?
Delay in finding problems/errors in the product development process is the topmost product design challenge faced by many companies. NX Nastran helps companies to find problems even before the prototype of the product is made and costly physical testing are conducted. Simulation also helps companies to make right trade offs for cost, performance, and quality.
Mastery over NX Nastran can give you confidence that your design will work when the first physical prototype is tested. You can safely evaluate design concepts that can be accomplished with physical prototypes. NX Nastran is best suited for the most advanced and demanding users.
ITRONIX SOLUTION teaches all key features of NX Nastran in solving most structural analysis problems for linear and non-linear analysis, dynamic response, rotor dynamics, aeroelasticity and optimization
- Linear Analysis: – This feature helps engineers solve static problems (“Will a structure fail under a prescribed load?”), transient problems (where loads change over a time).
- Non-linear Analysis: – NX Nastran is used to carry out non-linear analysis as simple as plastic catch, and as complex as car body crush and post-buckling analysis
- Rotor Dynamics: – Analysis of rotating systems such as shafts and turbines to understand rotation-induced gyroscopic and centrifugal forces and to determine dynamic stability
- Dynamic Analysis: – This type of analysis covers transient to frequency, to random and loading to shock response of a product. A use case of dynamic analysis include: evaluation of the effect of vibrations on the performance of consumer products and other high tech electronic devices.
- Aeroelastic Analysis: – Analysis of structural models in the presence of an air stream can be done using aeroelastic analysis. Static aero elastic trim analysis, flutter and dynamic aero elasticity response are some of the aero elastic analysis used in the design of airplanes, helicopters, missiles, suspension bridges, tall chimneys, power lines, and so on.
