Description

Description

This is an introductory class into the advanced topic of finite element analysis (FEA). This class will be application-oriented rather than theory oriented, and it is intended for those of us who can gain design value from some basic FEA techniques without having to have a PhD in mathematics. The goal is to bring the accessibility of advanced Digital Prototyping tools to the casual user. Each year the "expert systems" software development brings practical accessibility to more and more users. You should jump in here and start learning these tools—now is the time. You can leave your calculator at home.

Target Audience

Target Audience

Experienced users of Autodesk Inventor who are just beginning to get into Finite Element Analysis.
