This demonstration problems manual, written for those with a working knowledge of Nastran, highlights the steps necessary to use the advanced features of MSC Nastran 2012, including contact, elastic-plastic creep, elastomeric material nonlinearities, heat transfer, and adaptive mesh refinement. The subsequent application examples focus on how to include these advanced features by making relatively modest changes to existing MSC Nastran bulk data files using either a text editor or using a pre- and post-processing program like SimXpert.

Every application example has a working input file(s) available to simulate the results found in each chapter, and upon clicking its name, it will be downloaded into your browser to use. Once an understanding of how to invoke a new feature has been reached, you are encouraged to experiment by changing some of the input parameters and rerunning the application. Furthermore, as confidence grows, these models can serve as stepping stones to more complex simulations that can help you better understand and improve your simulations.
