How you run the analysis using the Patran Analysis application forms varies tremendously depending on
which analysis module or preference you select, and the type of analysis you will run. Shown below are
three different scenarios for an analysis with MSC Nastran. Each scenario illustrates how you would
submit the analysis based on different solution types and load cases.
To submit a single load case, linear static analysis job to MSC Nastran:
1.Click the Apply button on the Analysis application form.
Appropriate defaults and selections will be made automatically.
To select other solution types or multiple load cases, you will need to access one or more lower-level
subforms.
To complete a multiple load case, linear static analysis:
1.Open the Subcase Select form and select subcases with the same names as the user-defined load
case names for inclusion in the job.
To change a parameter for a subcase, such as an output request, you must access the Subcase
Create form, select a subcase, and bring up the appropriate form to make changes (such as Output
Request).
2.Select the Apply button.
To select a different solution type from linear static,:
1.Bring up the Solution Type form and make the appropriate selection.
You may then access a lower-level Solution Parameters form from the Solution Type form to
change parameters that affect the overall analysis. Subcases are created automatically for each
defined load case. You can select these on the Subcase Select form or modify them on the Subcase
Create form. The terms load case and subcase are interchangeable.
2.Click on the Apply button
