What's new in Autodesk Nastran In-CAD 2018

The 2018 release of Autodesk® Nastran® In-CAD finite element analysis (FEA) software includes interoperability with Autodesk CFD and response spectrum analysis.

  • New

    Autodesk CFD interoperability

    Import data from Autodesk CFD and apply thermal and fluid pressure results.
    (video: 46 sec.)

  • New

    Response spectrum analysis

    Analyse earthquake and wind loading. (video: 1:09 min.)

  • Automatic midplane mesher

    Idealise thin solid models as a shell. (video: 1.07 min.)

  • Frame Generator idealisation

    Select which structural members will be automatically idealised as beams.
    (video: 2.12 min.)

  • Heat transfer

    Avoid assembly failure due to high thermal stress. (video: 2.31 min.)

  • Linear buckling

    Analyse structures, such as columns and beams, for catastrophic failure under certain loading conditions. (video: 40 secs)

  • Static fatigue

    Determine the durability of structures under repeated loading, including low- and high-cycle fatigue. (video: 1.15 min.)

  • Bolt and connection

    Easily mesh models and run the solver for bolts and connections analyses.
    (video: 49 sec.)

  • Automated drop test

    Automate projectile impact and virtual drop tests for phones, laptops and many other products. (video: 1.44 min.)

  • Impact analysis

    Solve impact events and drop testing of all types of nonlinearities at the same time. (video: 1.49 min.)

  • Surface contact

    Accurately simulate and model parts with different kinds of contact, such as sliding, friction and welding. (video: 1.33 min.)

  • Frequency response

    Determine the structural harmonic response, based on frequency-dependent loads. (video: 2.01 min )
