NX Flow & NX Nastran Fluid-Structure Interaction
Within NX, can I run fluid-structure interaction between NX Flow and NX Nastran?
Yes, NX Flow pressures (both shear force and normal pressure) and/or temperatures can be automatically transfered from a CFD mesh to a disjoint and dissimilar NX Nastran structural mesh.
