Siemens PLM Software NX Nastran 9.0 | 1.3 Gb
NX Nastran is the premier finite element structural analysis solver for linear and nonlinear analysis, dynamic response, rotor dynamics, aeroelasticity and optimization.
The NX Nastran 9 release further extends solution types and results, in addition to a number of computational performance and engineering workflow improvements.
- Discipline and Physical Domain Extensions NX Nastran 9 - Discipline and Physical Domain Extensions In NX Nastran 9, laminate composite ply results for transient dynamics solutions outputs stress/strain information for individual lamina.
- Root mean square (RMS) von Mises stress is now included in the output for those elements that support von Mises stress calculation when computing the response of a structure due to random loads.
- Rotor gyroscopic and damping forces for rotor dynamics can now be computed in a linear static solution (SOL 101).
- Computational Performance and Numerical Accuracy NX Nastran 9 - Computational Performance and Numerical Accuracy In NX Nastran 9, an in-core frequency response method takes advantage of large amount of RAM and multiple CPUs to improve both serial and SMP solutions by as much as 50 percent.
- RDMODES performance improvements in version 9 reduce input/output operations. This can reduce overall elapsed time by as much as 50 percent, as in the case of a car body model containing 384,000 elements, 391,000 grids, and 2,300,000 degrees of freedom.
- Ease of Modeling and Engineering Workflow NX Nastran 9 - Ease of Modeling and Engineering Workflow NX Nastran 9 provides bolt preload with 3D solid elements for nonlinear analysis using CHEXA, CPENTA, CTETRA, or CPYRAM elements for solution 601.
- RFORCE1 bulk entry is now available in nonlinear solutions 601 and 701, allowing you to apply an angular velocity and/or acceleration inertia load to the grid points associated with specific elements.
