Model Files for the Tutorials and Examples in the eBook – Nonlinear Finite Element Analysis using OptiStruct 

This study guide aims to provide a fundamental to advanced approach into the exciting and challenging world of Nonlinear Analysis. The focus will be on aspects of Nonlinear Dynamic Analysis. As with our other eBooks we have deliberately kept the theoretical aspects as short as possible.
The tool of choice used in this book is OptiStruct. Altair ® OptiStruct® is an industry proven, modern structural analysis solver for linear and nonlinear structural problems under static and dynamic loadings. OptiStruct is used by thousands of companies worldwide to analyze and optimize structures for their strength, durability and NVH (noise, vibration and harshness) characteristics.
In this eBook, we will describe in some detail:

  • Nonlinear Materials
  • Nonlinear Geometry
  • Contacts
  • Bolt Pretension
  • Gasket Analysis
  • Nonlinear Direct Transient Analysis
