NAS106A - Basic Substructure Analysis using MSC Nastran - Primary Superelements

Horizontal spacer
In this class, you will learn how to define superelements, analyze superelements in static and dynamic analyses (including component modes), and set up both single and multi-level superelement analysis. You will learn how to perform restarts using superelements and incorporate superelements with nonlinear analysis.
