Introduction to FEA
This 2 day course will cover the basics of Finite Element Analysis. We will discuss the basics of model discretization through meshing and what makes a good and bad element. We will cover 1D, 2D and 3D elements, their pros and cons and why you might choose one over the other. We will also discuss the basics behind linear and non-linear analysis and the types of solutions we can achieve in both. This class will be mainly theory based but will include some hands on exercises utilizing Altair's Inspire, HyperMesh and OptiStruct software. No prior experience with FEA is required those is open to those with prior experience.
