For linear dynamics, the initial effort is often to determine the natural frequencies through a modal analysis.
Results are then utilized in a harmonic, shock, seismic, random vibration, or transient simulation to determine deflections, stresses, and strains. For nonlinear dynamics, a direct transient simulation can be performed.
