NAS101A - Linear Static and Normal Modes Analysis using MSC Nastran

Horizontal spacer
This course serves as an introduction to finite element analysis. It includes discussion of basic features available in MSC Nastran for solving structural engineering problems. In this course, all finite element models will be created and edited using a text editor, not a graphical pre-processor. Proper data structure of the MSC Nastran input file is covered. At the conclusion of seminar, the student will be familiar with fundamental usage of MSC Nastran.
