**NAS 101: Linear Static and Normal Modes Analysis**

Rigid Element Analysis with RBE2 and CONM2:
*Create a tube model with a 'rigid' end, define mass concentrations and apply a gravitational load for linear static analysis.*

Normal Modes - Rigid Element Analysis with RBE2 and CONM2:
*Create a tube model with a 'rigid' end, define mass concentrations and perform modal analysis*

Modal Analysis of Interpolation Constraint Elements and Concentrated Mass:
*Use previous exercise and replace rigid element with interpolation constraint elements.*

**NAS120: Linear Static and Normal Nodes Analysis Using MSC/NASTRAN and MSC/PATRAN**

Linear Static - Rigid Element Analysis with RBE2 and CONM2:
*Run previous lessons using linear static analysis.*

Simple Lumped Mass System:
*Model a simple lumped mass system using beam elements and point elements, apply proper constraints to ensure stability during analysis and find the first two modes of vibration.*
