NEi Nastran design simulation and virtual prototyping products allow companies to reduce product development costs and improve time-to-market. Engineers can determine real-world structural, thermal, fluid-flow, and aero-elastic behavior of both simple and complex 3D product designs. Model generation and analysis time is also reduced by combining powerful and easy-to-use finite element modelers with extremely fast analysis solvers that have a proven record of accurate results.
Uses the world's leading Windows-based pre- and post-processor for advanced engineering finite
element analysis (NEi Nastran Modeler), which is easy to use and has the power to model very difficult
Comprehensive interactive tools necessary for model creation, analysis monitoring, and results
evaluation including a state-of-the-art analysis
Proven track record demonstrating that NEi Nastran is one of the most trusted products for structural
analysis in all industries.
Advanced solution sequences such as linear and nonlinear static, transient dynamic, steady state
dynamic, frequency extraction, heat transfer, and other analysis types provide a choice of appropriate
analysis types for different types of simulations.

NEi Nastran uses the latest in solver technology providing fast results for the largest and most complex FEA models. Three linear solvers (PCGLSS, VSS, and VIS) and two eigensolvers (LANCZOS and SUBSPACE) are included. The PCGLSS (Preconditioned Conjugate Gradient Linear System Solver) is an advanced iterative solver licensed from CA&SI and used in many other leading FEA products. The VSS (Vector Sparse Solver) and VIS (Vector Iterative Solver) are based on NASA developed technology and have been enhanced to provide better performance and accuracy.
