What is Femap in NX Nastran?

Femap is a finite element modeling and post-processing environment. It interacts with solvers such as Nastran to model physical behavior to assist in the drawing of conclusions about said behavior.

What is NX Femap?

Femap with NX Nastran provides all of the capabilities that you will need in many instances, including linear statics, normal modes, buckling, steady-state and transient heat transfer, basic nonlinear, design sensitivity and optimization, and unlimited problem size capabilities. Description.

What can femap do?

What is a Nastran file?

A Nastran file is a text file than contains the input data for a CAE simulation software that are formatted under a certain format called “Nastran format”.

What is the difference between MSC Nastran and NX Nastran?

NX Nastran is a 2001 version of MSC Nastran, but has been enhanced from 2004-present. I don’t have anything to say about this version since I’ve never used it. This is an explicit onlinear FEA code developed by Altair. Abaqus and Marc are the two leading nonlinear fea codes on the market.

What is the difference between Simcenter and NX?

Here’s the real deal: Simcenter is the title of a new Siemens product that combines the functionality of NX’s modeling and advanced simulation environments. NX is at it’s core a CAD program, based on a legacy product called Unigraphics.
