NX Nastran

NX NASTRAN or NASA Structural Analysis Program is a software developed for NASA engineers to help them perform structural analysis, which soon became popular in the production and manufacturing industry. This general purpose Finite Element Analysis (FEA) software offers simulation across multiple analysis types, such as linear and nonlinear stress, dynamics, and heat transfer. Precisely, this tool helps optimize the performance of existing designs and develop the unique product at a reduced cost.

Course Objectives

NX Nastran course is designed to provide students and professionals with the rudimentary knowledge of structural analysis. The trainees will learn linear and non-linear FEA, its applications and modeling techniques. Throughout this training, concepts are systematically introduced and reinforced to help trainees learn in a better way.

Role in the Industry

  • NX Nastran’s parallel calculation performance of linear static analysis and engine value analysis help minimize the physical testing cost of rocket engines.
