Topics: Quality, Safety & Maintenance Vibration , Finite element analysis
This six-session course introduces vibration analysis performed with Finite Element Analysis (FEA). By considering time-dependent loads and inertial and damping effects, vibration analysis allows for a more in-depth product simulation thus reducing product development cost and time. The course reviews basic concepts of vibration analysis and illustrates how they are implemented in FEA to simulate product behavior. The most common types of vibration analysis such as modal, time response, and frequency response will be covered. The textbook, Engineering Analysis with SolidWorks® Simulation, by Paul Kurowski, is recommended reading.
Participants should have a degree in mechanical engineering and have some experience with FEA either by participating in the SAE Finite Element Analysis for Design Engineers eLearning course or Seminar or through equivalent work experience. Familiarity with Windows OS and some CAD is helpful. The textbook, ?Engineering Analysis with SolidWorks? Simulation? by Paul Kurowski, is recommended reading.
By participating in this course, you'll be able to:
*SAE International is authorized by IACET to offer CEUs for this course.
The course will be of interest to design, R&D, project, and product engineers who already use Finite Element Analysis (FEA) as a design tool and would like to explore if and how vibration analysis with FEA may benefit the design process. It builds on participants\' experience with static FEA and on knowledge of mechanical vibrations common to any mechanical engineer.
