This course will teach you the basic concepts of Finite Element Analysis and the general analysis process. You will learn how to conduct static FE-analysis on both parts and assemblies. The emphasis is on the process of creating a reliable analysis, anyone can produce a result, but we must be able to trust the result for it to add any value.
• Introduction to Finite Element Analysis
• GPS preprocessing
• Applying Physical Properties
• Managing Mesh-Part
• Mesh refinement
• Defining Restraints
• Defining Loads
• GPS Computation
• Why use Assembly Analysis?
• Assembly Analysis Process
• Analysis Connections
• GAS Computation
• Visualization of analysis results
After completing this course, you will be able to:
• Understand why, when and how to use Finite Element Analysis
• Use different element types and shapes to mesh a part
• Apply clamp, slider and isostatic restraints
• Apply force, moment, and displacement loads
• Compute the static analysis for a single part
• Visualize the images of the analysis results and produce the analysis reports
• Understand and differentiate between various types of hypotheses used for creating an Assembly analysis
• Define analysis connections between assembly components
• Use existing Assembly constraints to automatically create analysis connections
• Assign connection properties
• Compute a static analysis for an Assembly
Designers who have experience from CAD modeling with CATIA V5 and need to analyze parts and assemblies.
When your CAD skills need to be brushed up regarding CATIA V5 Analysis, this training can also be interesting.
