This capability was first introduced in NX Nastran 11. Documentation is in the Release Guide:

 

NX Nastran Topology Optimization

 

The second paragraph on that page contains a link to a PDF file documenting the Pre and Post processing workflow in Simcenter:

 

NX Nastran Topology Optimization in Simcenter

 

Hint: You need to customise the ribbon to enable the NX Nastran Topology Optimization Group on the Optimization tab in the Pre/Post application.

Thanks for the reply. I would like to know how to get 'normalised material density' in results.

If you've set up the solution as described in the previously referenced help articles (particularly the part about requesting ESE results and setting THRESH=0.0), and if the solution was succcessful, the Normalized Material Density results should be written to the .op2 file automatically.
