NX Nastran is a finite element method (FEM) solver for computational performance, accuracy, reliability and scalability. NX Nastran includes powerful solutions for linear and nonlinear structural analysis, dynamic response, acoustics, rotor dynamics, aeroelasticity, thermal analysis, and optimization. It is available as a standalone enterprise solver or as an integrated solver in Simcenter 3D.
NX Nastran has helped manufacturers as well as engineering suppliers in aerospace, automotive, electronics, heavy machinery, medical device, and other industries for their critical engineering computing needs so they can produce safe, reliable and optimized designs within increasingly shorter design cycles.
This course serves as an introduction of the concepts of displacement, strain, stress and constitutive equations of elastic solids in one, two and three dimensions. Study of material properties and solutions of one-dimensional structure members in tension, bending and torsion. Introduction of analytical, computational and experimental methods for analyzing mechanics problems of elastic solids.
Modeling and Simulation of Multi-Physics Systems
This course serves as an introduction to modeling and simulation of multi-physics systems. Many real-world engineering problems require multi-physics analysis, such as fluid-structure interaction, vibro-acoustics, aeroacoustics and thermal-fluid coupling. Students will learn how multi-physics problems are modelled and simulated by using commercial simulation software package in this course. A set of selected multi-physics problems will be studied to learn how to model the system, obtain computational solutions and interpret the results to extract necessary engineering design information. Fundamentals of fluid mechanics, solid mechanics, acoustics and vibration will be discussed in relation to one another in the context of each multi-physics problem.
