Autodesk Nastran In-CAD
Autodesk Nastran In-CAD software, a general purpose finite element analysis (FEA) tool embedded in your CAD system, is powered by the Autodesk Nastran solver and offers simulation spanning across multiple analysis types, such as linear and nonlinear stress, dynamics, and heat transfer.
To meet the demands of an increasingly competitive global market, manufacturing firms face intense pressure to constantly innovate, reduce development cycles and time to market, and avoid in-field failures while staying profitable. There are benefits that a CAD-embedded FEA technology can bring to your product development process.
Material data is vital to the accuracy of engineering simulation in design. Simulation of materials such as metal, composites, rubber, and plastics help users learn more about how a product will perform. Autodesk Nastran In-CAD supports a wide range of linear and nonlinear materials allowing for better understanding of the real-world behavior of products.
Start with basic analysis for exploring the viability of design alternatives and concept validation and move on to advanced analysis if and when powerful analyst tools are needed. Autodesk Nastran In-CAD has a wide range of analysis capabilities from basic to advanced—linear and nonlinear and dynamic analyses.
