Engineering Testimonial about NEi Nastran FEA

Ease of Use

Customer Support

Pros: We needed a suite of structural analysis capabilities covering static, advanced composites, dynamic, stability, collapse, impact, frequency, and random vibration tools. In addition, the solver had to include material and true geometric non-linearities and be capable of transient loading. NEi Nastran has more than meet these needs. Furthermore, the FEA code had to easily handle local material coordinate systems for 3D-solids and 2D-laminated shell elements that are common with changing properties in FRP structures. Again, NEi Nastran satisfied this need.

Cons: Often CAD and FEA change format with upgrades. However, portabilty links is handled by NEi Software development in a timely manner.

Overall: NEi Nastran is a user-friendly, powerful, and affordable software solution that can be applied to any industry. In addition, a FEA solver package is not particularly useful without good service. This is an area where NEi Software excels.

Pros: Cost-effective and user-friendly FEA solver which I have

relied upon for over 12 yeas.

Cons: A product is never complete. There is always room for improvement and having used NEi Nastran for over

12 years, I am confident that I will see continuous

improvements such as "Advection in 2D Axisymmetric

FEA Models", "Contact Thermal Resistance" as well as

"2D Axisymmetric Elastomeric Elements"

Overall: I highly recommend NEi Nastran from NEi Software

company as a cost-effective FEA product.
