Can MANATEE be coupled to OptiStruct / Ansys / LMS / etc ...?

MANATEE can be coupled to commercial structural FEA software (e.g. Ansys, Optistruct) and solvers (Nastran, Abaqus) or multiphysics numerical software (e.g. Comsol Multiphysics, Ansys Workbench) in both ways.

In particular, a coupling tool between MANATEE and Altair Optistruct as well as Ansys Mechanical allows to automatically build the geometry and physics of a lamination, and solve its vibration response using EVS (Electromagnetic Vibration Synthesis) technique.

The import of the modal parameters calculated by an external FEA tool is detailed in How to enforce user-defined modal properties ? tutorial.
