The course demonstrates 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.
Registrations will be accepted until 5:00 p.m. the day before the start of the web seminar, but early registration is encouraged to allow for pre-course set-up and instructions.
