MSC Nastran Patran Rebar Analysis Concept

10/05/2016 12:19 PM

Hello I'm trying to create an analysis of a wall being hit by waves. My plan is to make this wall and throw lots of force on it by water. I created the walls in solidworks with their materials characteristics and assembled the rebar and wall together and then ported them to patran by IGES files. But I don't know if Patran would recognize the support of the rebar when I transfer these wall files from Solidworks. Would I make a finite mesh for both the wall and the rebar? I'm very new to Patran so please be descriptive as I am trying to learn Patran at the moment. Thank You!!

This is the video that taught me how to import solidworks designs to Patran. Do you have any other suggestions? Thanks
