Siemens Digital Industries FEMAP and Simcenter Nastran

E508 & E509

Provides specific optimization support for any versions of Simcenter Femap with Simcenter Nastran. With this module, you can improve upon existing designs through the manipulation of element properties such as plate thicknesses and beam sections. The design can therefore be optimized to minimize weight for example, while maintaining specific responses such as displacements or stresses.

Optimization may be applied to a broad range of Simcenter Nastran analysis types, such as:

  • Linear statics
  • Normal modes
  • Buckling analyses

In addition, it also includes a broad range of optimization capabilities that can be used with the more advanced Simcenter Nastran capabilities such as dynamic response.
