Nastran In-CAD: What is it?

Nastran In-CAD: What is it?

Autodesk Nastran In-CAD software, a general-purpose finite element analysis (FEA) tool for engineers and analysts, offers a range of simulation powered by the Autodesk Nastran solver.

Nastran In-CAD offers a much greater variety of simple and complex analysis types such as heat transferthermal stressbucklingfatiguelinear and non-linear statics and dynamics, and multi-physics. 

This single product is available as a network license and serves multiple CAD platforms such as Autodesk Inventor and SolidWorks – providing a consistent user experience and eliminating the need for multiple single-platform simulation technologies. Autodesk Nastran In-CAD delivers high-end simulation technology in a value-enhanced, CAD-embedded workflow so engineers and analysts can make great products.

With features such as Advanced analysis allowing you to Prestress normal models – examining stiffness-influenced natural frequencies, easily handle complex ply data, with automated drop test you can automate projectile impact and virtual drop tests.

Efficient modelling allows Automatic midplane mesher to Idealize thin solid models as shells, Frame Generator idealization for Automatic beam idealization for Frame Generator and Bolt and connection allows you to solve accurately with fewer elements.

Linear, stress and thermal analysis gives you access to Static fatigue to determine the durability of structures, Linear buckling to Examine structures for sudden failure modes and Linear statics to Determine stress, strain, and deformation.

Enjoy an open and integrated experience, go beyond basic analysis with Inventor, perform more advanced analysis with Solidworks and get accurate results from advanced analysis with Autodesk Nastran Solver.
