ADM710 - Flex Body Dynamics and Modal Stress Recovery using Adams

Horizontal spacer
You will learn how to use Adams/Flex to incorporate flexibility into your Adams models. The course is primarily focused on using component modal synthesis via the Modal Neutral File (MNF) and Adams/View. Previous FEA experience is a plus, but not a requirement. You will be comfortable using Adams/Flex after taking this course.
