Nonlinear Analysis in MSC Nastran to Reduce Design Bottlenecks

Sporadic use of advanced finite element analysis (FEA) software, such as nonlinear analysis by design engineers, can result in either excessive refresher training time or a bottleneck while in the queue for an analyst. The cause is a result of different types of solvers requiring different models. Commercially available translators can help, but still require significant amounts of cleanup. However, by integrating solvers in MSC Nastran’s SOL 600, the same model in the familiar MSC Nastran format can be used for both liner and MSC Marc nonlinear analysis.

Optimum Design of a Steel Connection of a Glass Façade for a High Rise Building

The use of glass in the exterior facades provides more light and good ambience to the inhabitants of a building. In our case, this leads to a high increase of the use of glass in the facades. The curtain wall is formed by an aluminum framework with steel connections. These steel connections are welded to the building while steel beams and bolted to the aluminum frame.

Reducing the Product Development Time of a Rotary Cutter System Through Simulation

In the agricultural and heavy machinery industries, durability and strength are some of the most important indicators of quality. Maintaining high levels in these areas requires the application of many different tests and assessments to the end product. However, one of the most time-consuming parts of the production is the lengthy process of building physical prototypes, testing them for durability, then redesigning several parts and starting all over again. This process can significantly extend the time it takes to get a product to market. This was the case for John Deere Welland Works while developing a 20-foot rotary cutter system.

Where’s the Dirt? – Use Realistic Material Loads in Adams

The world of heavy equipment is full of big machinery digging and moving dirt. Millions of tons of bulk material are moved every day by excavators, bull dozers, ploughs and trucks. The challenge faced by engineers who are designing such equipment is to understand how their machines will perform in the material environment they operate in.
