1) could anyone let us know what they find better from SOL701 compared to let's say Abacus or LS-DYNA?
2) We are looking at available resources to support our dev in the field of simulation and barely can find documentation and/or examples for Simcenter 3d/NX Nastran - SOL701. In contrast to the wealthty library of demo and docs from other vendors, this makes our decision quite difficult. We'd prefer staying with Siemens on the Simulation side however things are not looking good right now.
We can't even find example data cards, test cases, or anything related to 701. Perhaps I am not looking at the right place? Our var offered to help us out but slipped out twice already, not sure what to make of this.
We'd like to take advantage of mat rupture; anyone have any test cases whether in basic or complex format that can be shared here for SOL701?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Well that is more than what we asked for. Nice one, Jim, much appreciated.
I'm at HQ tomorrow afternoon and will import those in and see how far we get. Hopefully this will work out just the way we anticipated from the start i.e staying with Siemens on the sim side.
Let you know how it went. Thanks again
Just back from hq where I had the opportunity to run those in. Fairly impressive and exactly what we were looking for, at least for one of our product line. SOLD!
We already make great use of the 101 and 103 for most of what we do. Time to get the adv add-on I'm affraid.
I'm loving those zero-gravity blocks! Although the Jr team in the back office prefered searching online for caliber/ballistic properties, testing out mat/SSC and thickness with your other examples. How productive!
PS: passed on the examples to our var here. That was quite a moment lol
Could you tell me how I can use this files to learn about SOL701? I'm searching information, tutorials about fast changing phenomena calculated in SOL601(129) or SOL701.
I would like to make simulation like this:
I'm thinking about these files as a input solver files, but I don't know how i can use it in Simcenter 12, or if it is possible.
Thank you for sharing .sim and .fem files to this simulation. I can see BC's, time step strategy, and strategy parameters, but i can't solve again this simulation. Probably the problem is because of my license. My company has license NXN120 which should contain solver 601 and 701. Solver 601(101) Nonlinear static works perfectly. I have contacted our country siemens suppliers and the matter is being clarified. Are you able to solve this Simulation at Simcenter 12?
Yes, I was able to solve using Simcenter 12. In fact, the .7z file attached to my previous post contains the solver output files and results .op2 file from my run using Simcenter/NX Nastran 12.0.2.
Now, I know where the problem is.
Could not check out NX Nastran license feature nx_nas_advnlin_ent.
*** SOL 701 EXITED WITH INVALID STATUS CODE -1
*** MOST LIKELY, PROGRAM HAS CRASHED.
*** FATAL ERROR: SOL 701 DID NOT FINISH SUCCESSFULLY.
*** ADVANCED NONLINEAR EXIT CODE 0 ***
*** ISHELL PROGRAM 'NXNA' COMPLETED ***
^^^ USER FATAL MESSAGE
^^^ ERROR IN ADVANCED NONLINEAR MODULE 0
The problem with the license is explained with our supplier.
Could you share with me the files (sim, fem) for the next two examples. I will try them on solver 601.
