Design Visionaries Releases "Advanced Simulation Using Nastran NX5 / NX6"

New Book Offers Alternative to "Build 'em and Bust 'em"

    SAN JOSE, CA, October 23, 2008 /24-7PressRelease/ -- A new book details the use of Nastran NX5 / NX6 in Advanced Simulation. Advanced Simulation Using Nastran NX5 / NX6 by Stephen Samuel, Benjamin Stevenson and Eric Weeks will be released by Design Visionaries on September 20. The subtitle, A Practical Learning Manual For People Who Design Stuff, says it all. In Advanced Simulation Using Nastran NX5 / NX6, the reader will work on representative components and assemblies to learn all the skills needed to conduct various finite element analyses. This book has been written with the goal of making advanced finite element analysis techniques more accessible to those who are doing the initial design of engineering components and assemblies. This manual can be used as a continual cheat sheet for NX5 / NX6 Advanced Simulation/Nastran software.

When design engineers in the enterprise master the techniques in this manual, they will be able to augment their design processes with better information sooner.This can easily lead to huge savings by avoiding failures and getting the answers to design questions without the expense of prototypes.

The book has been written by people who are continually asked to produce good designs on a tight schedule.
