Nastran SOL number option in .dat file

Nastran SOL number option in .dat file

Hi all,

is there a way, using FEMAP with NX NAstran solver, to write in the .dat file the SOL tag in number rather than in characters? SOL 103 instead of SOL SEMODES etc.


RE: Nastran SOL number option in .dat file

In the Analysis Set Manager, when you set up your NASTRAN run, under "NASTRAN Executive and Solution Options", you can specify a "Solution Overrride", and manually enter the 103. There is no automated way to have the NASTRAN SOL Name always replaced with the SOL Number.
