Advanced non linear explicit (Nastran SOL 701)


Hello Everybody,

I want to compare simulation of bullet impact on helmet between Abaqus and Femap.

I did simulation in Abaqus but I never did explicit analysis in Femap so I want to ask can I do that if bullet and helmet are 3D models because I dont know if Femap support 3D elements for SOL701?

Sol701 supports 3D elements without mid-side nodes.


Please refer to the Advanced Nonlinear Theory and Modeling Guide that you can access by selecting Femap's Help > NX Nastran command.
