Course programme

-This Course introduces basic finite element analysis techniques for linear static, normal modes, and buckling analysis of structures using MSC.Nastran and MSC.Patran.
MSC.Nastran data structure, the element library, modeling practices, model validation, and guidelines for efficient solutions are discussed and illustrated with examples and workshops. MSC.Patran will be an integral part of the examples and workshops and will be used to generate and verify illustrative MSC.Nastran models, manage analysis submission requests, and visualize results.

-This Course provides the foundation required for intermediate and advanced MSC.Nastran applications.

-Topics Covered:

* Introduction to finite element theory
* Introduction to finite element modeling
* Anatomy of the MSC.Nastran input file
o MSC.Nastran statements
o File management section
