FEA Beyond Basics: Nonlinear Analysis Web Seminar RePlay PD331725

PD331725

Newly Released!

Finite Element Analysis (FEA) has been an indispensable tool for design simulation for several decades but this wide spread use has been limited to simple types of analyses. Relatively recently, more advanced analyses have given easy-to-use interfaces enabling design engineers to simulate problems formerly reserved for analysts. FEA Beyond Basics targets the FEA users who wish to explore those advanced analysis capabilities. It will demonstrate how to move past the ubiquitous linear structural analysis and solve structural nonlinear problems characterized by nonlinear material, large displacements, buckling or nonlinear connectors. The discussion will help participants identify, set up and solve complex nonlinear problems and as well as use results of nonlinear analysis to support the product design process.

All topics are illustrated using FEA software, SolidWorks® Simulation, for which participants will be provided a student license (compatible with 64-bit Windows 7 SP1, 8.1, 10; IE 10,11; MS Excel and Word 2010, 2013, 2016) and opportunity to practice skills learned. Acquired skills, however, will not be software specific and no prior exposure to FEA software is required. In-class, hands-on exercises and between-session assignments will provide an opportunity to put what is learned into practice.

Objectives

By participating in this course, you will be able to:

  • Identify a need for a nonlinear structural analysis
  • Identify the types of nonlinearities
  • Employ correct problem definition and solution strategy
  • Select applicable modeling techniques
  • Assess and implement results of nonlinear analysis

Materials Provided

  • 90 days of online single-user access (from date of purchase) to the three session, approximately seven hour, recorded presentation
  • Course workbook (downloadable, .pdf's)
  • Online learning assessment
  • Instructor follow up to your content questions 
  • .7 CEUs* (upon completion of all course modules and satisfactory assessment score)

*SAE International is authorized by IACET to offer CEUs for this course.

 

Is this Web Seminar RePlay for You?

The course is intended for design engineers who already have a foundational understanding of FEA but need to elevate its use to an advanced level to predict product behavior more closely.
