This course is meant for Mechanical Designers and Structural Analysts.
Students attending this course should have knowledge of CATIA V5 Fundamentals and Generative Part Structural Analysis Fundamentals courses.
The first part of this course will teach you the basic concepts of Finite Element Analysis and the general analysis process. You will learn how to perform a simple static analysis on a single part using finite elements, and how to produce the final report of the analysis results.
The second part of this course will teach you how to use advanced Finite Element Analysis pre-processing techniques and post-processing tools, including the concept of defining virtual parts to avoid excessive geometric modeling. You will learn how to perform frequency analysis on a single part, and how to use adaptive meshing to achieve pre-defined accuracy.
The third part of this course will teach you how to perform a Finite Element Analysis using an existing assembly. You will learn how to create connections between assembly components and how to assign appropriate connection properties. You will also learn how to create an analysis assembly from existing meshed parts.
This course is made up of three smaller courses that have been compiled to form a comprehensive, in depth course that covers all of the topics as one course.
Upon completion of 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 iso-static restraints
Apply force, moment, and displacement loads
Compute the static analysis for a single part
Visualise the images of the analysis results and produce the analysis reports
Refine existing meshes to produce more accurate results
Define and customise the material properties of the parts to be analysed
Apply pressure, acceleration, and force density loads
Define virtual parts to simplify the analysis
Apply pivot, ball-joint, and user-defined restraints
Compute the frequency analysis for a single part
Create planar sections to visualise the internal result values
Compute and refine a mesh using adaptive meshing in order to achieve the pre-defined accuracy
Understand and differentiate between various types of hypotheses that are used for creating an assembly analysis
Define analysis connections between assembly components
Use existing assembly constraints to automatically create analysis connections
Assign a connection property to the appropriate analysis connection
Compute a static analysis for an assembly
Create and manage an analysis assembly model using existing meshed parts
