ECSA CPD approved course (5 credits) - SAIMechE-1347-11/22
Do you need a refresher course on all the fundamental theory and practical applications of Finite Element Analysis (FEA) or are you completely inexperienced in using FEA?
If you are on either end of this scale, this course is for you! And best of all is that this course is software-independent, so you may use any software of your choice to follow the worked out examples or you can use any of 4 different FEA packages distributed and supported by SIMTEQ!
With more than 16 years of experience in using FEA and more than 8 years of experience teaching and supporting customers in the use of FEA, Paul Naudé consolidated all the practical challenges experienced by analysts daily and presented them with the fundamental theory behind FEA to offer practical solutions that will save you time and money while still giving your results credibility.
The theory behind various aspects of FEA is only covered in enough detail to provide you the understanding of why certain mistakes are regularly made and to understand why and how to eliminate them from occurring in the first place.
The practical exercises are worked out with clear to follow instructions for MSC Apex but you will also be able to complete all the exercises in any other software of your choice, if you have some experience using its interface and if the software supports the covered topics.
Since the focus of the training is on the practical application of FEA and not on the use of any particular software, the exercises are easy to follow and most are pre-set up for you to experiment with what was covered in the preceding lecture session(s).
The topics covered in this course are as follows:
