The Introduction to Finite Element Analysis with Simcenter Pre/Post course is an introductory course for static finite element structural analysis using NX Nastran. The course is designed to teach NX Nastran independent of pre- and post- processors. However, additional material is available for demonstration of use with Simcenter 3D. It is intended for analysts who want to learn the details of how to perform static structural analysis using NX Nastran.
The course covers the details of the structural analysis processes to define loads and boundary conditions, FEA model checking and solving, and interpreting the results. This course also covers NX Nastran deck format, executive section, Case control, Output control, and common element uses and limitations.
This course does not cover any topics of Simcenter Pre/Post. For information on Simcenter Pre/Post, please refer to the prerequisites information below.
This course is intended for designers, engineers and finite element analysts who would like to understand how to perform linear static analysis using NX Nastran.
