SimScale FEA Master Class

Take a deeper look into the theoretical and practical applications of Finite Element Analysis

Course Overview

The aim of this course is to show you different theoretical and practical applications of FEA with a firm focus on getting accurate simulation results, not just pretty pictures. In this 3-module course you will learn about advanced meshing strategies, modelling material non-linearity, numerics, and Dynamic Analysis. Students who complete the video lectures, step-by-step exercises, and quizzes to 100% will receive a special SimScale Certificate of Completion which can be added to a resume or course profile on Linkedin.

Course Format

Each session consists of:

  • A 60-minute video lecture
  • A step-by-step exercise to help you put what you have learned in the lecture directly into practice
  • A 5-question quiz to cement your knowledge

Session 1: Advanced Meshing Strategies

In this first session, we will discuss advanced meshing strategies and you will learn how to choose the right discretization approach for your engineering problem.

Session 2: Modelling Nonlinear Material Behavior

The second session will be focused on different approaches to modelling nonlinear material behavior. We will discuss strength theory and how different types of materials can be represented.

Session 3: Dynamic Analysis and Numerics

During the final session, we will discuss the physics of a dynamic Finite Element Analysis and delve into the details of numerics.

I hope you enjoy the course and Happy Simulating!
