Introduction to Finite Element Analysis

Anytime
Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is a computer-aided engineering (CAE) tool used to analyze how a design reacts under real-world conditions. Useful in structural, vibration, and thermal analysis, FEA has been widely implemented by automotive companies and is used by design engineers as a tool during the product development process. Design engineers analyze their own designs while they are still in the form of easily modifiable CAD models to allow for quick turnaround times and to ensure prompt implementation of analysis results in the design process.

Adhesives Bundle

Anytime
Manufacturers increasingly rely on adhesives to assemble a variety of products, such as cars, computers, furniture, and toys. An adhesive is a substance used to join two or more materials. Adhesive bonding is the process of placing an adhesive between two surfaces, or substrates, and allowing it to harden, or cure. Structural adhesives are most commonly used in adhesive bonding, since they can easily withstand heavy loads. Epoxies, anaerobics, acrylics, silicones, urethanes, and cyanoacrylates are commonly used structural adhesives. These classes explain the fundamental concepts of adhesive bonding as they apply to product assembly.

Advanced GD&T Competencies: Profile of a Surface Web Seminar RePlay

Anytime
While the topic of profile is covered in a basic Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerancing (GD&T) course, those discussions often ignore the variations allowed with these symbols that enable them to be used in complex ways. This advanced web seminar will clarify the proper use of the profile tolerances in GD&T and uncover the nuances of these two symbols. Since profile of a surface is arguably the most powerful GD&T symbol, its full potential will be explored. It can be used to control size, form, orientation, and location and its relationship to datums can be varied.

Advanced GD&T Competencies: Composite Positioning Web Seminar RePlay

Anytime
While the basics of position are covered in a standard Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerancing (GD&T) course, and sometimes a lone example of composite position is given, those discussions often overlook the variations allowed that enable more accurate control based on part function. This advanced web seminar will clarify the proper use of “double-decker” position controls in GD&T. There are two distinct types: composite position (one symbol) and two single-segment position controls (two symbols). These are commonly used to locate patterns of features (bolt circles, etc.), but they are rarely taught in any depth.

Introduction to FMEA: What, Why, When and How

Anytime
Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) is an essential part of any product design or redesign activity. FMEA is a proactive, quantitative, qualitative, step-by-step approach for identifying and analyzing all potential points of failure in any product or service. This team-based activity can dramatically improve product performance. It can also reduce manufacturing issues at the component, system, and processing level. This module gives a high-level overview of FMEA facts: WHAT an FMEA is, WHY they are used, WHEN an FMEA is created, WHO is on the FMEA development team, and HOW the FMEA form is completed.

The Art of Leadership Presence

Anytime
Stuff happens. Maybe your team responds to an idea in a way you never expected. Maybe the people who were supposed to show up didn’t. Maybe a colleague expresses concern with your leadership style. Maybe someone finds a serious error in the report. We all experience surprises. What if you could meet these surprises with ease and confidence? And what if you could create, through your own personal presence, space for more positive, collaborative engagements between people? You can when you adopt the mindset of an improv actor!

Catalytic NOx Control Technologies for Diesel & GDI Engines Web Seminar RePlay

Anytime
Lean burn engines (diesel and GDI) boast higher fuel economy and cleaner emissions than conventionally tuned engines while producing equivalent power. They employ higher combustion chamber compression ratios, significant air intake swirl and precise lean-metered direct fuel injection. The downfall of lean-burn technology, however, is increased exhaust NOx emissions (due to higher heat and cylinder pressure) and a somewhat narrower RPM power-band (due to slower burn rates of lean mixtures). Removal of NOx from exhausts is a critical need for emission standards and ambient ozone requirements.
