The Introduction to DMAP in NX Nastran course offers training in the NX Nastran Direct Matrix Abstraction Program (DMAP) language. Students will learn to write their own DMAP extensions to enhance the capabilities of NX Nastran. DMAP can be used to enhance the functionality of NX Nastran including computation of different responses, the transfer of non-standard data to and from NX Nastran or to incorporate other user-developed algorithms. The student will learn to use the DMAP language through the presentation of lecture materials and the completion of example problems.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

This course is intended for advanced finite element analysts who need to be able to customize NX Nastran to their exact requirements including acceptance of new inputs, performance of new calculations and generation of new outputs.
