Home / ADINA

ADINA premier simulation for advanced analysis, is widely used in industry and academia to solve the most difficult problems in solids & structures, heat transfer, fluids, electromagnetics, FSI (fluid structure interaction), CFD and Multiphysics.

Now available through EnDuraSim as standalone advanced analysis capability, ADINA powered SOL601/701 via NX Nastran’s “Advanced Non-linear” solution. Thus, EnDuraSim has 15 years’ ADINA solver experience to rapidly accelerate analyst productivity in ADINA non-linear simulation.

ADINA is also perfect as an add-on to FEMAP for analysts who wish to use ADINA as their sole FEA solver or to otherwise conduct advanced projects beyond the mild limits of Nastran standard non-linear capability. Femap’s existing inbuilt SOL601/701 interfaces and ADINA’s direct Femap interface & results output make FEMAP and ADINA Structural workflows perfectly designed to achieve streamlined project outcomes.

Incremental structural non-linear capability includes:

  • Large motion general 3D contact and large rotation rigid elements
  • Explicit transient solver for high speed impact and crashworthiness
  • Material failure (element removal) for full collapse and superior ultimate load analysis
  • Element birth/death for sequential construction/assembly analysis
  • Multi-case bolt pre-load for accurately represented tightening sequences
  • Large strain (true vs engineering) plasticity and hyperelasticity
  • Sub-modelling for non-linear analysis
  • Multiple convergence / solver settings to assist unstable initial conditions and challenging non-linear physics
  • Restarts between static and transient analyses; implicit and explicit solvers
  • General time based loading to perform multiple load sequencing
  • Additional material representation for brittle materials, concrete, soils, composites and glass
