NAS102 - MSC Nastran Basic: Dynamic Analysis


This course introduces the main Dynamic Analysis capabilities available in MSC Nastran. Fundamental concepts of dynamics will be seen as well as other more advanced ones and all of them explained through practical applications. The types of dynamic analysis that will be studied in the course are: normal modes, transient response and frequency response.
