Horizontal spacer

This workshop is a comprehensive presentation of the dynamic capabilities available in MSC.Nastran. It covers fundamental and advanced topics with an emphasis on practical applications and example problems. A comprehensive presentation of the dynamic capabilities available in MSC.Nastran is presented in this workshop. These dynamic analysis capabilities include normal mode analysis, transient response analysis and frequency response analysis. Theoretical derivations of the mathematics used in dynamic analysis are presented only as they pertain to the proper understanding of the use of each capability. The examples offer the user an effective handling of his problems.
