Residual Stress consideration in NX 10


Hello all,


I just came to know that in NX11 it is possible to consider residual stress as an initial state but it is limited to only SOL 401 (I dont know which solution is this).


Is there any other method that can be used in NX 10 as well ? I have residual stress results from different program and want to use them in Nastran as an initial state. Is it possible to assign these stresses to nodes by using Nastran statements/parameters ?
