MSC Nastran is based on sophisticated numerical methods, the most prominent being the Finite Element Method.
MSC Nastran is a multidisciplinary structural analysis platform used by FEA engineers to perform static, dynamic, and thermal analysis across the linear and nonlinear domains.
Manufacturers applied MSC Nastran's unique multidisciplinary approach to structural analysis at various nodes in the product development process.
MSC Nastran are used to:
Develop virtually prototype early in the design process, which interns saving costs associated with physical prototyping.
Neutralized structural issues that may occur during a product's service, reducing backlog and costs.
Provide performance Optimisation for existing designs with available optimization algorithms, including MSCAD and IPOPT.
Provides Nonlinear FE problems solving methods either with built-in implicit or explicit numerical techniques.
MSC Nastran enables to:
Perform Linear Statics, Buckling, and Dynamic Analysis.
Use connectors for system level analysis.
Integrate FE models with MSC Software's multi body simulation solution Adams.
Predict product behavior when subjected to shock with MSC Nastran's Dynamic Design Analysis Method.
Study steady state and transient thermal scenarios.
Effectively optimize with sophisticated optimization tools.
Reduce effort meshing with MSC Nastran's innovative Glued Contact capability.
Engage in Rotor Dynamic studies.
