Mastering FEA - Free, One Day Class
Today's CAD-embedded and graphical FEA interfaces make generating meshes and getting results easier than it has ever been. However, intro product training is no substitute for coaching in best-practices to maximize the value of the analysis or tips to avoid common mistakes nearly all new and many experienced users make.
Date: September 18, 2014
Time: 8:30 am to 5:00 pm
Location: Sands Hotel, Bethlehem, PA
After this software-independent workshop, attendees will be able to answer the following questions:
• How can I determine if I have over-constrained my model?
• Do my loads really represent real-world behavior?
• Part or Assembly?
• What is the best CAD model to start with? Can I over-simplify?
• When should I use Shells, Beams, Plane Stress or Axisymmetry?
• Is my mesh converged?
• Do I need nonlinear?
• What result quantity is important for my material? My design criteria?
• Can I trust my results?
• Should I consider dynamic effects?
Vince Adams will be presenting the session. Vince has been a consultant, instructor, and advocate for FEA in product design for over 20 years. He has written 3 books on the subject, including the popular "Building Better Products with Finite Element Analysis" as well as numerous articles for Desktop Engineering & Design News magazines. Vince has been an invited speaker and instructor with engagements all over the United States as well as Europe, South Africa & Asia.
