Nastran is a Finite Element Analysis (FEA) software which is used to understand the real world behaviour of product design. Nastran is used for analyzing linear and nonlinear stress, dynamics, and heat transfer characteristics of structures and mechanical components.

Course Objectives

At the end of this course you will be able to:
  • know fundamentals of finite element analysis
  • Navigate the Autodesk Nastran.
  • Create, edit, and assign materials.
  • Create constraints with the required degrees of freedom
  • Create loads with magnitude and location of the loads on the model.
  • Assign global and local mesh settings.
  • Run an Autodesk Nastran.
  • Review result and create plots.
