The Engineer's Best Option for Stress and Structural Analysis

Femap with NX Nastran

Interactively supports a broad range of capabilities

The range of capabilities in the base module includes linear and statics, normal modes, buckling, basic nonlinear and heat transfer. In addition NX Nastran for Femap includes additional options for dynamics – that includes transient/dynamic, frequency/harmonic response, response spectrum, random response DDAM (Dynamic Design Analysis Method) – as well as advanced nonlinear analysis, aeroelasticity, superelements, optimization, rotor dynamics and DMAP (Direct Matrix Abstraction Program).

The product configuration provides a wealth of functionality in the base module as well as allowing for great flexibility and scalability extending to the most advanced types of analysis that are able to handle the toughest engineering problems including:

  • Dynamics

  • Optimization

  • Advanced Nonlinear

  • Rotor Dynamics

  • Superelements

  • DMAP

  • Aeroelasticity

  • Structural Analysis Toolkit

Integration with NX Nastran

Femap has a 15 year history of working as a pre- and post processor to Nastran. In addition to NX Nastran, Femap is also able to support other versions of Nastran including MSC/MD Nastran and NEiNastran. All of these solvers can be easily encapsulated within Femap while providing a high degree of solution control to the user.

Detailed and complete NX Nastran controls

Within Femap it is possible to directly define & control most aspects of the NX Nastran simulation. From controlling the solution options (such as defining an iterative solution), param keyword settings, specific job controls (such as restart controls, executive controls & manual controls with DMAP), case controls (load and constraint definition), model checking (geomcheck controls, weight & ground checks), and detailed result generation requests.

VisQ solution job management

VisQ actively manages NX Nastran solutions from Femap, and provides users with advanced tools to define, schedule and track simulations.
