Right now, there are more than 7500+ job advertisements, globally, for keywords “Finite Element Analysis (FEA)” and “Computer Aided Engineering (CAE)”. The pay for these jobs are spiking up and the demand too is increasing at an insane rate.
The reason is simple. Almost all companies have realized the importance of simulation-assisted design processes. They are figuring out ways to incorporate simulation in their product development lifecycle and need skilled people who can help them do that.
But here’s the catch.
Companies want people who understand the bigger picture of things and adapt to the ever-changing landscape of product design. Not someone who knows the theory but finds it difficult to apply it in real life.
This course is exactly intended to bridge that gap between FEM theory and application.
Let me reveal a secret. If you are not going to be a FEM tool developer, you don’t need all the math that is being taught at the university or being described in detail in standard FEM textbooks. Rather, you need a clear and conceptual understanding of the concepts of FEA and then the aptitude to select and use the right tools from the commercially available FEA packages.
In this course, I will take you through different steps in Finite Element Analysis from a practical perspective. It is going to be fully application-oriented and I will present some case studies from the industry that will give you an idea of how industry professionals break down complicated problems into small chunks and then solve them gradually. I will also talk about the physical meaning of a lot of commonly misunderstood terms and terminologies in FEA. It’s always teamwork going ahead and these terminologies would help you to communicate effectively with other FE Analysts and design engineers in your team.
Then, I will introduce a framework for Python scripting that could be used for simulating problems with ABAQUS. I will use this framework to help you write Python scripts for 5 different problems and solve it using ABAQUS.
That's how this course will add value to you.
What are you waiting for? Act now and get yourself certified with this course.
Who this course is for:
Mechanical / Civil Engineering students who want to understand FEA in a practical way without getting bombarded with complicated math
Beginner FE Analysts from the industry who want to apply FEA right away in their work routine
Design engineers looking to transition into a FE Analyst role
Engineers who want a framework for using Python Scripting in ABAQUS to increase productivity
Managers who want to understand the bigger picture of FEA before decision making
Technical sales professionals who want to be sure about the fundamentals of important terms used in FEA
Small or medium sized companies who are short on manpower and time and want to quickly ramp up their understanding of FEA
