Autodesk Inventor Nastran

What is Inventor Nastran?

Inventor NastranĀ® delivers finite element analysis (FEA) tools for engineers and analysts.

  • Powered by the widely accepted Autodesk Nastran solver technology
  • Wide range of simulation study types for nonlinear, dynamics, heat transfer, fatigue, and more
  • Highly tested through a comprehensive verification program and documentation set using NAFEMS

Why use Inventor Nastran?

1. Improve product performance:- Choose from a complete portfolio of powerful study types to help you optimize your design.

2. Reduce warranty issues: Go beyond linear static study types and analyze the effects of recurring loads in a fatigue study.

3. Decrease time to market:- Analyze your designs early and often right inside Inventor to reduce the number of physical prototypes.

Features of Inventor Nastran

Heat transfer:- Analyze the effects of convection, conduction, and radiation on your design to avoid failure due to excessive temperatures and use those results to solve for an accurate thermal stress study.

Automated drop test:- Use intuitive tools to set up the initial velocity and acceleration for impact analysis.

Advanced material models:- Gain highly accurate results by using advanced material models for plastic, rubber, soft tissue, and more in a nonlinear study type.

Linear static:- Quickly solve linear static studies to learn where you have high concentrations of stress, strain, or displacement in your design.
