Product Simulation with Inventor Nastran

by Michael Fiedler, Designated Support Specialist at Autodesk


Product Simulation with Finite element analysis (FEA) is a computerized method for predicting how a product reacts to real-world forces, vibration, heat, fluid flow, and other physical effects. Finite element analysis shows whether a product will break, wear out, or work the way it was designed. It is called analysis, but in the product development process, it is used to predict what is going to happen when the product is used. 

In this learning path you will learn the following skills:

  • Apply the right analysis type for the task
  • Simplify a model for simulation
  • Select the right type of mesh and elements
  • Apply loads
  • Analyze the results of the simulation
