Continues to explore the Finite Element Analysis (FEA) tools and applications using FEA software necessary to model, simulate, and analyze mechanical parts and assemblies. The topics covered include analysis of advanced loading, analysis of welded and bolted/pinned structures, design optimization, frequency analysis, and an introduction to fatigue and non-linear analysis.
Runs concurrent with AICO 4448 (CRN 62631). Mandatory six-hour Saturday plant tour. Note: IZUNA reserves the right to cancel courses. In the event of a part-time studies course cancellation, you will be notified at least two business days prior to the course start. Please ensure that your contact information is current.
This course offering has been cancelled. Please check back next term or subscribe to receive email updates.
Upon successful completion, the student will be able to:
Discuss the limitations and applications of both linear static and non-linear FEA.
Apply structural advanced loading to both parts and assemblies.
Analyze pinned/bolted structures and assemblies using FEA software.
Implement various mixed meshing techniques.
Analyze welded structures and assemblies using FEA software.
Determine natural frequencies and mode shapes of components and assemblies.
Optimize designs of mechanical components and assemblies using FEA.
Analyze non-linear behaviour of mechanical parts and assemblies due to large structural displacement.
Effective as of Spring/Summer 2014
