Autodesk Nastran for Inventor: Unlocking Nonlinear Analyses
Collapse Expand


Real-world problems are rarely linear or static. Nonlinearities often impact the prediction of a product's behavior in unpredictable ways. These add uncertainty and risk to decisions made from either virtual or physical test results for engineers and designers who don't understand them. We'll summarize simply and clearly the process of identifying and planning for the 3 key types of nonlinearity in product performance so that you will be able to spot them in both physical as well as virtual testing. We'll teach you how to account for nonlinearities in testing, but the remaining focus will be on nonlinear simulation covering processes, terms, and troubleshooting. While we'll use Simulation Solutions for illustration, the concepts covered will be valid for any simulation software attendees.

Key Learnings
