Superelement Analysis with Simcenter 3D for Pre/Post (NAS321)The Superelement Analysis course offers training in the use of the superelement analysis capabilities of Simcenter Nastran.
Superelements can play a key role in allowing the analyst to solve larger and more complex finite element models with limited computer resources. Simcenter Nastran offers three types of superelements, and these can all be used with most Simcenter Nastran analysis sequences. The different types of superelements each have their advantages and disadvantages, depending on the particular needs of a program. The student will learn to use all three types of superelements through the presentation of lecture materials and the completion of example problems.
