In this class, we cover many of the more advanced simulation workflows, physics, and ways of interpreting the results. The class discusses stress analysis of assemblies subjected to complex loadings and contact conditions. We cover modal frequency analysis and how to interpret the results using mass participation factors. We examine thermal analysis and multiphysics for thermal-stress coupling using CFD-calculated temperatures. We talk about buckling load factors and fatigue analysis of complex loading sequences and results interpretation. Finally, we put all the results together through the Decision Center and Comparison environment.
Any mainstream Autodesk® Simulation user or designer who wants to become familiar with the more advanced simulation features that are offered in the Sim 360 cloud service
Heath Houghton is the Product Manager for Autodesk Simulation CFD. He had been an Technical Specialist at Autodesk since 2011. Heath joined Autodesk with the acquisition of Blue Ridge Numerics (CFdesign). Heath was in a similar role with Blue Ridge Numerics for 4 years. As a technical specialist, Heath supported technical sales through customer-facing engagements, working with the Autodesk partner network, and provided development feedback and guidance for Autodesk's suite of simulation tools. Heath has 15 years of experience using advanced simulation tools.
In this hands-on lab, learn how Inventor® Professional, Autodesk® Simulation CFD, and Autodesk® Simulation Mechanical design tools can empower structural engineers and architects to accurately assess designs for the infrastructure of our growing world. Autodesk design and creation suites are a smorgasbord of design tools, many with unlimited cloud computing capabilities. Creatively exploring various combinations and interoperability functions of Autodesk Simulation tools in nontraditional workflows can have a profound effect on design. This lab provides an opportunity to practice the workflow and techniques in a hands-on environment. A case study shows the techniques that are needed then justifies using simulation tools and workflows to accurately predict the thermal profile and resultant stresses through validation against measured bridge data. Attendees learn how Inventor designs can be analyzed for thermal loads using Simulation CFD and for thermal stresses using Simulation Mechanical.
In this class, you see how Sim 360 Pro simulation cloud services, in tandem with Fusion 360™ cloud-based software, can be used to design an improved football helmet to help reduce injuries to players while keeping the same level of comfort and visual appeal. All design modifications and simulation work is performed on the cloud, demonstrating that the traditional means of design and analysis work are being surpassed by this faster, more lightweight method. If you're interested in the future of product design and analysis, this is the place for you. Ravens fans need not apply.
