Description

This User’s Guide is intended to be tutorial in format. That is, the emphasis is on how to use superelements, not on the theory of superelements. Sufficient theory is presented for those who wish to understand the operations. Hand-solved samples are included to help the user understand the operations involved when superelements are used. Sample MSC.Nastran input files and selected output are also presented at appropriate points for clarity.

This User’s Guide is arranged so that an experienced finite element analyst can start at the beginning and read only the information applicable to the type of analysis desired. Overall information on superelements is presented first, followed by information for static analysis, followed by dynamics and other features. We recommend that the user read this Guide from the beginning, because much of the information presented in the section on statics is applicable in subsequent sections (similar to engineering itself); however, an engineer should be able to read the applicable sections without having to read unnecessary information.
