Utilize the premier FEM solver
Simcenter Nastran is a premier finite element method (FEM) solver for computational performance, accuracy and reliability. It is a powerful solution for linear and nonlinear structural analysis, structural dynamics, acoustics, rotor dynamics, aeroelasticity and
Trust the industry standard of over 50 years
Simcenter Nastran has been helping manufacturers as well as engineering suppliers in aerospace, automotive, electronics, heavy machinery, medical device, and other industries for their critical engineering computing needs to produce safe, reliable and optimized designs within ever shorter design cycles.
Simplify modeling processes
Simcenter Nastran is known as a leader in structural and dynamics simulation, but it goes beyond those solutions. Nonlinear structural analysis, acoustics, rotor dynamics, aeroelasticity and flutter, thermal analysis and optimization are all available from the same solver. The advantage to having all these solutions available in a single solver is that input/output file formats are the same for all solution types, which greatly simplifies modeling processes.
Integrate from the desktop to HPC systems
Available as an integrated solution within Simcenter 3D, or as a standalone solver, Simcenter Nastran gives you the flexibility to deploy to the computing systems that will best serve your application needs.
Benefit from flexible licensing
Leverage Simcenter 3D value-based licensing to gain immediate access to the Simcenter Nastran modules you need. If you’re a Simcenter Femap user, explore our Simcenter Femap/Simcenter Nastran bundles. You can also license Simcenter Nastran separately to work with whichever pre/post system you choose.
