eOSSP Open Source Simulation
Finite Element Analysis
This course illustrates the benefits of using FEA throughout the specific product development processes of your organization. Based on numerous examples you learn how to develop better products faster, how to reduce costs and - finally - how to increase your company’s profits.
benefits of simulation - role of simulation over ‘Product Life Cycle’ (conceive-design-testing-manufacture-marketing/sell-support-dispose)
Fundamentals of FEA
determining needs and requirements - FE meshing (choosing the ‘right’ finite element type, compatibility of element types, automatic vs. mapped meshing, local mesh refinements …) - defining material properties (linear & nonlinear behaviour etc.) - defining boundary conditions (restraints, contact conditions, structural symmetry, delimitations …) - defining loads (acting forces, pressure distributions, temperature fields, prescribed motions, time dependencies, sub-cases, super-positioning …) - optimizing the structure (‘what-if’ scenarios …)
strengths/weaknesses of simulation and testing - correlation of analysis and measurement results - engineering judgement - real world samples & best practices in FEA (determination of structural stiffness, durability assessments, normal modes analysis, analysis of transfer functions, structure born noise etc.)
increasing model size - blurring of traditional lines - Apps & customized software solutions etc.
introduction to the Open Source FEA code evolution-fea (GUI, CAD & FE interfaces, automatic & mapped meshing, parameterized meshing, mesh modification, material properties, restraints, loads, lumped masses, static & dynamic analyses, evaluation of analysis results etc.)
