FEA Master Class

Become an Expert in Finite Element Analysis (FEA)

About this workshop

What makes the difference between a pretty visualization and a meaningful simulation result? Find out in the FEA Master Class and learn how to fundamentally increase the accuracy of your structural mechanics analysis.

Participants will receive a hands-on, interactive introduction to the different aspects of structural simulation (FEA) and will learn from top simulation experts how to leverage the free, cloud-based SimScale platform to receive accurate simulation results. Every session comes with an optional homework assignment that will help you put the gained knowledge into practice.

Submitting all three homework assignments will qualify you for a Certificate of Completion. All participants will get free access to SimScale with all the required simulation features. Please note that we recommend gaining some first experience with FEA and SimScale before joining this course.

Session 1

Session 1 - Advanced Meshing Strategies

March 20th 2017 4:00 p.m. CET / 11:00 a.m. EST

In the course of the first session of the FEA Master Class, we will discuss advanced meshing strategies. You will learn about the fundamentals of finite element discretization and how to choose the right approach for your engineering problem.

Session 2

Session 2 - Material Nonlinearity

March 28th 2017 4:00 p.m. CET / 11:00 a.m. EST

The second session of the FEA Master Class will be focused on different approaches to model nonlinear material behavior. We will discuss the fundamentals of strength theory and how different types of material can be represented using appropriate material models.

Session 3

Session 3 - Dynamic Analysis and Numerics

April 3rd 2017 4:00 p.m. CET / 11:00 a.m. EST

During the final session of the FEA Master Class you will learn about numerics and dynamic analysis. We will show you how to predict the accuracy of your simulation and how to improve numerical settings to get your result faster.
