Linear FE Analysis using OptiStruct

This course will show students how to solve Linear FEA problems using the software Hypermesh and Basic FEA. Students will learn the basic steps to set up a FEA problem, the important aspects to consider in setting up a FEA problem, and how to interpret the results. The training will focus on understanding how to solve structural problems using a high level finite element solver, the theoretical and practical aspects of these problems are presented to provide the attendees a very good base to start using OptiStruct on their own models.
