NAS113 + PAT325 MSC Nastran Composite Material Analysis + Laminate Modeler Introduction

NAS113 + PAT325

COURSE GOAL: In this combined seminar, the user who is already familiar with Nastran and Patran will learn how to carry out analyses using composite materials with Nastran. Subsequently, the special module Laminate Modeler is introduced in the Patran environment, which provides effective assistance in the modelling and evaluation of FEM models with composites.

COURSE COSTS : € 1.920

COURSE REQUIREMENTS: NAS101 or equivalent experience; Familiarity with MSC.Patran and a knowledge of composite materials.
