Vibration Analysis Using Finite Element Analysis (FEA) Web Seminar RePlay

Anytime
Finite Element Analysis (FEA) has been used by engineers as a design tool in new product development since the early 1990"s. Until recently, most FEA applications have been limited to static analysis due to the cost and complexity of advanced types of analyses. Progress in the commercial FEA software and in computing hardware has now made it practical to use advanced types as an everyday design tool of design engineers. In addition, competitive pressures and quality requirements demand a more in-depth understanding of product behavior under real life loading conditions.

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 courses explain the fundamental concepts of adhesive bonding as they apply to product assembly.

Root Cause Problem Solving: Methods and Tools

Anytime
How do you solve a problem? Do you find yourself using quick and easy solutions or a structured methodology? Too often, organizations tend to seek quick solutions to a problem without adequately addressing its underlying cause. These decisions often result in solutions that don?t work or aren?t sustainable, often wasting time, effort, and money. To combat these issues and adopt a fresh approach, teams can use the methods and tools of Root Cause Problem Solving. By first viewing a problem as an opportunity for improvement, the team can then identify the problem?s root cause or causes, and implement solutions to prevent the problem?
