This book provides the necessary basics to perform simple to complex simulations with Siemens NX software. It is aimed at designers, CAE engineers and engineering students.
Based on NX 9 the following topics are covered in the book: Motion Simulation (MBD), Design Simulation FEA (Nastran), Advanced Simulation (FEA, CFD and EM) and the management of calculation and simulation data (Teamcenter for Simulation).
After starting off with brief theoretical introductions each chapter contains learning tasks of increasing difficulty. Most of them are based on the CAD model of the legendary Opel RAK2.
The CAD data and calculation results of all exercises can be found online. The exercises can be done in NX versions 8, 8.5, 9, 10 and probably later versions.
Dr.-Ing. Peter Binde is managing director of the company Dr. Binde Engineers and lecturer on FEM at RheinMain University of Applied Sciences, department of mechanical engineering. He is a globally active specialist for product simulation with NX. Prof. Dr.-Ing. Reiner Anderl is head of the department of Computer Integrated Design at the faculty of engineering at TU Darmstadt (DiK).
