Rotor Dynamics with Femap for Pre/Post (NAS440)
The Rotor Dynamics course introduces the rotor dynamics analysis capabilities of NX Nastran.
It covers the solution of rotor dynamic problems in both rotating and fixed coordinates, including complex eigenvalues (Campbell diagrams), synchronous and asynchronous frequency response, and synchronous and asynchronous time response. Examples and workshops give the student practical hands-on experience.
The class is focused on NX Nastran, and all of the material applies independently of pre- or post-processor. The workshops and examples are deck-centric (i.e., the decks will be prepared with a text editor), though, where appropriate, Femap will be used for preprocessing of the model and visualization of results.
