FEA Pre and Post Adds Nastran

Femap 9.2, a CAD independent FEA pre and postprocessor, now includes NX Nastran 4.1.

The recent version also includes modeling and visualization tools and assists with managing contacts in assemblies. V 9.2 features stronger multiphysics (a way to combine thermal, fluids, and structural simulations, for example) and supports weldments. Coming releases will include glued contact support, assembly-support improvements, and extended surfaces.
