The Advanced Dynamic Analysis with Femap for pre/post course continues where the NX Nastran Introduction to Dynamic Analysis course left off in teaching NX Nastran's dynamic analysis capabilities. It covers fundamental methods of dynamic response, including both modal and direct analysis. There is an emphasis on practical applications and enhancing the students' engineering judgment with respect to dynamic response. The fundamentals of structural dynamics theory and the numerical methods used to solve them are presented.
This course covers the linear dynamic response capabilities in NX Nastran, including model reduction, random response analysis, shock and response spectra, MFLUID, and nonlinear applied loads. A variety of hands-on workshop exercises supplement the lecture content. The class is focused on NX Nastran and most of the material applies independently of pre- or postprocessor. However, additional material is available for demonstration of use with Femap.
This course is intended for finite element analysts who will be using NX Nastran to perform dynamic analyses to predict structural behavior under steady state and transient conditions.
