The Rotor Dynamic Analysis with Femap for pre/post course introduces the rotor dynamics analysis capabilities of NX Nastran. It covers the solution of rotor dynamic problems in both rotating and fixed coordinates, including complex eigenvalues (Campbell diagrams), synchronous and asynchronous frequency response and synchronous and asynchronous time response. 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. Where appropriate Femap is used for pre-processing and visualization of results.
This course is intended for engineers and finite element analysts who will be using NX Nastran to perform analysis of rotating systems to predict critical frequencies and dynamic response.
Participant needs to have a basic understanding of finite element analysis principles and a working knowledge of Nastran and NX.
