Surface Contacts in Nastran In-CAD

10 a.m. PT - Thursday, October 19th


Nastran In-CAD is Autodesk's premiere Finite Element Analysis, or FEA, software. It solves numerous types of simulation types and is fully integrated in the familiar Autodesk Inventor environment.

The way in which objects are connected in a simulation is important in ensuring that you get the most accurate results. In an assembly analysis, surface contacts have to be generated to perform a nonlinear contact analysis. In this webinar we will discuss contact settings in Nastran In-CAD and what settings to use at what particular situation.

Topics covered include"

  • Contact Settings
  • Differences between contact types
  • Examples of linear and non-linear contact

Your education doesn't stop here. Come back every Thursday morning, year-round, to learn more about the products you use, especially if you are using Autodesk software for product design and manufacturing.
