Learning or reviewing the fundamentals of finite element analysis (FEA), including best practice, will enable you to get the most out of your own simulation software or assess the FEA undertaken by others with confidence.
This online version of our well established classroom-based course will provide you with a solid foundation in the basic theory and application of the finite element method to structural mechanics – helping you to run and critically evaluate simulations effectively and accurately.
The training sessions combine formal presentations with a number of practical workshops to reinforce learning. We use the flexible and robust GoToTraining web conferencing system.
Who Should Attend?
Designers, engineers, researchers, students and managers who are currently or may in the future be involved with FEA within their role.
This course is suitable for anyone using FEA software directly, involved in specifying FEA projects or reviewing, checking and interpreting results within FEA reports.
As a fundamentals course, it is assumed that delegates do not have any previous experience. However, it can also serve as a refresher course if you have some existing FEA experience obtained from work or academic studies.
This online course is split into 2 sessions over 2 consecutive days at approximately 3 hours each.
Sessions commence at 9 am.
Start Date: 12 December 2023
Sessions on 12 December, 13 December.
Classroom Training Option
A classroom-based course is also available at one of our venues if preferred to virtual training.
