Multistep SOL 401/402

Siemens Digital Industries Software will upgrade the Advanced Nonlinear solver (SOL601) to the Multistep Nonlinear solver (SOL401/402) as of January 1, 2022.

If you have any questions regarding the upgrade, please contact us via the form at the bottom of this page, by phone or via support@femto.nl.

We will periodically update this page.

best practices

SOL 401 nonlinear capabilities

SOL 401 is a multi-step, structural solution that supports a combination of subcase types (linear, dynamic, preload, modal, Fourier, cyclic). SOL 401 supports large strains and large displacements, large rotations, and nonlinear materials. SOL 401 is supported as a standalone solver, it can be used in Simcenter 3D Pre/Post, and is supported in Simcenter Femap’s Analysis Set Manager. SOL 401 is also the structural solution used by the Simcenter 3D Multiphysics environment within the Pre/Post application. The Multiphysics environment supports all combinations of structural-to-thermal and thermal-to-structural coupling with the Simcenter 3D Thermal solution.

SOL 402 nonlinear capabilities

SOL 402 is a multi-step, structural solution that supports a combination of subcase types (static linear, static nonlinear, nonlinear dynamic, preload, modal, Fourier, buckling and complex eigenvalues extraction) and large rotation kinematics. SOL 402 is supported as a standalone solver, it can be used in Simcenter 3D Pre/Post, and is also supported in Simcenter Femap’s Analysis Set Manager. SOL 402 supports large strains and large displacements, large rotations, and nonlinear materials.

401/402 solvers

The Multistep solvers work with subcases. In these subcases different analysis types can be defined. It is possible to do a static analysis first and then switch to a transient analysis where the static results will be the initial state.
It is also possible to just use the global case and define the analysis there. This is similar to a sol 601 analysis set.
