  • Learn how to use automated connectors like Bolted Connections
  • Develop skills to construct connectors manually

Description

Description

This class covers the use of bolted connections, joints, rigid elements, and other element types to link parts within multi-body assemblies inside Autodesk Nastran In-CAD and Simulation Mechanical.  Several models will be displayed to highlight the differences between solid and idealized connectors, and how each approach can affect the results. 

Target Audience

Target Audience

Designers, Designer Engineers, Product Engineers, Simulation Engineers and Analysts who use or are interested in learning about how to use connectors in Nastran In-CAD and Simulation Mechanical.

Andrew Sartorelli

Andrew Sartorelli is a 2012 graduate of the University of New Hampshire, with a Bachelor of Science degree in mechanical engineering. He went on to work for a number of small companies using computational fluid dynamics software to optimize power consumption in the data center and mission-critical facility field. Sartorelli has been with Autodesk, Inc., since autumn of 2013 as a technical support specialist for Simulation Mechanical software, most recently acting as knowledge domain expert for Autodesk Nastran software and Autodesk Nastran In-CAD software.

David Truyens

David Truyens has buildup a strong overview on the Autodesk manufacturing products in the 10 years he has been working for distribution in the Benelux. Always had a passion for simulation, but also multi-disciplinary projects. He studied at the University of Antwerp as an electro-mechanical engineer, with a final project on the optimization of a wing box in a collaboration with Dassault. Later on he moved from heavy lifting to product design to find his passion in CAE. Other passions are tinkering with Arduino and CNC (creating a self-balancing robot for example). In rare occasions when he can’t be found behind his computer or at a customer he seeks complete disconnection while sailing at sea.
