On Tuesday, May 7th, TLG Aerospace’s Engineering Manager, Robert Lind, presented a paper titled “MSC Nastran Aeroelasticity for Aircraft Certification”. This presentation focused on the use of MSC Nastran for certification level analysis. Specific examples of MSC Nastran/Patran and related tool usage were shown for real world certification projects. Attendees will gained an appreciation of the ability of these tools and procedures to provide critical certification data at the highest required levels of fidelity (FAA and international). Analysis types and levels of detail were also summarized for earlier steps of the design cycle.
