This release includes new features and enhancements in Nonlinear Inertia Relief with Contact, Numerical Methods and High Performance Computing, Optimization using OpenMDO, Splining Improvements, and enhancements in Rotordynamics. IFPStarStarting with the MD Nastran 2011 and MSC Nastran 2011 releases, IFPStar will be the default input file processor for Nastran. The IFPStar component provides more accurate verification of input files and their conformance with the QRG. It also provides enhanced error messages, as well as a complete list of the bulk data entries used in your model in the input file summary section.Advanced Nonlinear (SOL 400) Nonlinear Inertia Relief with Contact (SOL 400) (Ch. 2).More information can be found in Advanced Nonlinear (SOL 400) (Ch. 2).Numerical Methods and High Performance Computing (Performance) ACMS (Ch. 3) Enhanced Math Kernel Library (Ch. 3) Automatic SMEM Allocation (Ch. 3) Thermal Performance Enhancements in SOL 400 (Ch. 3)More information can be found in Numerical Methods and High Performance Computing (Ch. 3).Optimization External Optimization via OpenMDOTM (Ch. 4) User Defined OpenMDOTM External Optimizer Service (Ch. 4)More information on these optimization enhancements can be found in Optimization (Ch. 4).Aeroelastic Enhancements Improvements in Splining (Ch. 5)More information on these aeroelastic enhancements can be found in Aeroelasticity (Ch. 5).Main Index3CHAPTER 1ContentsElements Rotordynamics Enhancements (Ch. 6).More information can be found in Elements (Ch. 6).Future Platform SupportMD Nastran and MSC Nastran will no longer be delivered on the SGI IRIX platform; MSC Nastran 2010 is available on SGI IRIX.

It is now available in MD Nastran for SOL400 with nonlinear material and contact analysis but under the restriction of small displacement/rotations (PARAM,LGDISP=-1). BenefitsThe following feature is included in MD Nastran SOL 400. Support inertial relief capability in SOL 400 with nonlinear material and contact analysis. TheoryCase Control Parameter IRLOAD=QLIN causes a self-equilibrating quasi dynamic loading to occur. User InputsThe Case Control Command, IRLOAD, will activate this capability for SOL 400. It is only available to SOL 400 and will be ignored in other solution sequences.Selects nonlinear inertia relief set for SOL 400Format: Example:IRLOAD=QLINEARIRLOADNonlinear Inertia Relief Selection (SOL 400 only)Field ContentsQLINEAR Inertia Load Calculation with small displacement (Quasi-Linear) is activated in SOL 400.NONE No Inertia Relief (Default)IRLOAD=QLINEARNONE ) ` Main Index7CHAPTER 2Advanced Nonlinear (SOL 400)Remark:1. This command is active only in SOL 400 and its use requires a set of STATIC supports that constrain all six rigid body motions.2. IRLOAD=QLINEAR, which has to be applied above to all SUBCASES, is a global case control command and activates the inertia load calculations in SOL 400 for all applied static loads. In nonlinear static analyses (ANALYSIS=NLSTAT), it also activates the inertia relief analysis with small displacement. When IRLOAD=QLINEAR with large displacement (PARAM,LGDISP -1), a fatal error message will be issued. Also superelements in conjunction with IRLOAD=QLINEAR will cause a fatal error.IRLOAD=NONE (default) deactivates the inertia load calculations.3. IRLOAD=QLINEAR is ignored by perturbation analyses in SOL 400.OutputsStandard Nastran outputs.Guidelines and LimitationsThe guidelines and limitations can be considered in the following two groups:1. From the general view point of Nonlinear Inertia Relief in SOL 400a. The current implementation is restricted to the requirement that all six rigid body motions be constrained. Thus no mechanisms or symmetry boundaries are allowed. b. This approach is only valid for models whose geometry does not change during loading, such as SOL 400 with LGDISP=-1 (Default). c. The Inertia Relief analysis d
