What is the difference between MSC NASTRAN and NX NASTRAN?
NX Nastran is a 2001 version of MSC Nastran, but has been enhanced from 2004-present. I don’t have anything to say about this version since I’ve never used it. This is an explicit onlinear FEA code developed by Altair. Abaqus and Marc are the two leading nonlinear fea codes on the market.
What is Siemens NX NASTRAN?
About NX Nastran NX Nastran is a finite element analysis (FEA) solver and was originally developed for NASA over 40 years ago. The software solves most structural analysis problems for linear and nonlinear analysis, dynamics, acoustics, rotor dynamics, aeroelasticity, acoustics and optimization.
Is femap free?

Is NASTRAN a solver?
NASTRAN is primarily a solver for finite element analysis. It does not have functionality that allows for graphically building a model or meshing.
What language is Nastran written in?
What is NX Femap?
Femap with NX Nastran Femap delivers just that – affordable high performance FEA modeling for the engineering desktop. Femap is recognized as the world’s leading CAD-independent Windows-native pre- and post- processor for advanced engineering finite element analysis.
What is Simcenter Nastran?
Simcenter Nastran is a premier finite element method (FEM) solver for computational performance, accuracy, reliability and scalability.
What does femap stand for?
Femap (Finite Element Modeling And Postprocessing) is an engineering analysis program sold by Siemens PLM Software that is used to build finite element models of complex engineering problems (“pre-processing”) and view solution results (“post-processing”).
