About the FEA for Formula Student/FSAE - 2017 category

Aerodynamics and CFD are only one part of the equation when designing a Formula Student race car. Finite Element Analysis is another fast an convenient tool for approximating solutions to a variety of complicated engineering problems involving structural components and overheating.

SimScale and Formula Student Germany have again joined forces to offer a free workshop – this time about structural analysis and thermal management in vehicle design. During the 2-session course, students will receive a hands-on, interactive introduction to the Fundamentals of Finite Element Analysis and Thermal Analysis. Completing the course will enable participants to improve the structural integrity and performance of their own car design.

Every session comes with an optional homework assignment. Submitting all homework assignments will qualify participants for a Certificate of Completion. All participants have free access to SimScale with all the required simulation features.
