Course Syllabus

Basics FEA

In this module, we focus on the fundamentals of FEA. FEA is a generic technique used to solve. Boundary Value Problems. FEA finds a lot of applications in structural analysis.
In this module, we will discuss the math behind FEA, along with the following topics

  • 5w's of Finite Element Analysis 
  • Types of Engineering problem-solving methods
  • Types of CAE Process
  • Model setup 

2D plate elements are used to model thin structural members such as aircraft fuselage skin or car body

Hypermesh introduction

In this module, we focus on a popular Meshing software called HyperMesh. HyperMesh is a highly capable simulation software and hence we will spend a fair amount of time understanding the various tools and features that have to offer, with respect to this course. 
Inthis module, we will discuss the following topic

  • Geometric tool and Tools menu Introduction
  • Basic Geometric tools
  • Geometry cleanups (includes auto cleanup) 
  • Midsurface creation

Key Geometric tools

While dealing with complex 3D components, it is important to remove small features and holes that are inevitable from the CAD model creation standpoint. We will introduce you to the batch Mesher Macro that will help in accomplishing this. In this module, we will discuss the following topics

  • Criteria files for Geometry cleanup 
  • MNode's creation & Node edit
  • Point Edit
  • Edge Edit

2D Meshing Introduction and examples

In this module, we will discuss the following topics

  • 2D Meshing Introduction 
  • 2D Basic tools

Advanced 2D meshing

Almost all components in real life are 3d in nature. However, meshing a complex automotive component with 3D mesh will increase the meshing and simulation time exponentially. A professional mesh creator will take these into account and make 1D and 2D simplifications accordingly. You will learn Connectors and Mesh edit examples

Connectors

Sometimes, meshes are made with both 2D and 3D meshes that are interspersed. Connectors help the computer understand that the interface is between two different kinds of meshes. Connectors are time-saving features that are a must in large models. In addition to this, connectors offer a way to let the computer know that two components have been seam welded.

1D Meshing

In this module, we will discuss the following topics

  • 5Masses, Bar, Rod, Rigid, RBE3, Springs, Gaps 
  • Connectors, Spotweld, Hyperbeam, Linemesh, Linear 1D
  • Edit, Element, Split, Replace, Detach
  • Order change, configuration edit, Element type.

1D beam elements are used to model long, slender structural members, as demonstrated in this communications tower finite element model.

3D Meshing

In this module, we will discuss the following topics

  • Lined Drag 
  • Element offset
  • Spin
  • Tetramesh
  • Edit Element
  • Split Element
  • Replace
  • Detach
  • Order change
  • Configuration

3D solid elements are used to model thick components such as piston head as shown above.
