Learn how Simcenter Nastran calculates and reports stress data so you can interpret stress results better during postprocessing.
Postprocessors like Femap and Simcenter 3D allow users to quickly flip between elemental and nodal stress results, but what do those results mean? Understanding how Simcenter Nastran reports stress can help us make more informed decisions.
This webinar, originally delivered on November 13, 2019, will share where stress results are computed within a finite element, default Simcenter Nastran behavior, and how to choose between center and corner stress results in the case control. In addition, we’ll share an example that shows how stress recovery location can impact the results, and we’ll examine stress contour options for both Femap and Simcenter 3D.
