The Coupled Structure/Acoustic Analysis with Femap for pre/post course introduces the acoustics and structural-acoustics coupled analysis capabilities of NX Nastran. It covers the solution of acoustic systems, the solution of coupled structural-acoustic systems, the implementation of acoustic boundary conditions, and the modeling of absorbers, barriers, and infinite boundaries. Examples and workshops give the student practical hands-on experience.
The class is focused on NX Nastran and all of the material applies independently of pre- or postprocessor. The workshops and examples are deck centric (i.e. the decks will be prepared with a text editor), though where appropriate FEMAP will be used for preprocessing of the model and visualization of results.
This course is intended for engineers and finite element analysts who will be using NX Nastran to perform analysis of fluid or coupled fluid-structural systems to predict responses under steady state and transient conditions.
Participant also needs to have a basic understanding of finite element analysis principles and a working knowledge of Nastran and Femap.
