This interface reads the PATRAN database with the model and writes the results onto PATRAN result files.

The modeling is made using custom-made PERMAS preferences. Own solver menus support standard PERMAS solutions from within PATRAN, which may be adapted by the user himself. The following model parts are translated:

  • all common elements
  • all kinds of loads incl. inertia loads
  • all PERMAS kinematic boundary conditions
  • sets
  • specifications of substructures
  • variant definitions

The interface supports the following analysis types:

  • linear and nonlinear statics
  • contact analysis
  • dynamic mode analysis
  • thermal analysis
  • fluid-structure acoustics (basic modeling and post-processing)

Even for other types of degrees of freedom like electric potential the model may be prepared within PATRAN.
