ZONA NASTRAN Data Loader (ZNDAL)
by Zona Technology
ZONA NASTRAN Data Loader (ZNDAL) is a Tecplot add-on developed by ZONA Technology, Inc. that allows for viewing of NASTRAN finite element models and basic output analysis results.
You can now directly import your NASTRAN finite-element models and output analysis results into Tecplot with the new ZONA NASTRAN Data Loader.
The ZONA NASTRAN Data Loader (ZNDAL) is a Tecplot add-on developed by ZONA TEchnology, Inc. ZONA has extensive experience in the area of aeroelasticity, aeroservoelasticity, unsteady aerodynamics and structural dynamics. Since 1986, ZONA has been serving the aerospace structural dynamics community through contractual work and software support.
NASTRAN, the NASA Structural Analysis System, is a general
purpose finite-element analysis (FEA) program for use in
computer-aided engineering. NASTRAN is a standard in the
structural analysis field, providing engineers with a wide range
of modeling and analysis capabilities. NASTRAN applications
include almost every kind of structure and construction.
As an input bulk data translator, ZNDAL can be used to view models to ensure modeling accuracy before submitting a NASTRAN job. When viewing basic output analysis results, use ZNDAL to visualize structural displacements due to loads (static analysis), structural free vibration solutions (dynamic analyses), and stress contours plots (stress analyses).
ZNDAL features include:
