training/workshop analyzing fea models.

(OP)
hi all,

While I was looking for information I walked into this thread: thread727-211759: Peak stress in solid FE models

It is about recognizing and analysing peak stresses. Some say that you can find general statements in every report where it appears that the analyst has no clue what is going on.

It is nice to read through a thread like this. Everyone has a lot of ideas.

These days I am analysing also a model. Stresses are above 1400 MPa, but mostly due to contact. Some colleague told me that it is okay to accept them, because the structure will not yield through the whole section.
For me I find it very difficult to know when or what is allowable. Where is a line crossed? Maybe if the stresses were 1500 MPa, he would say the same.

I am an engineer, so I am the most happy when I can stick to rules where it is stated what (and when) some things are allowed and when not. Unfortunately, the world isn't this simple.

So to enlarge my knowledge and to be confident about stresses, refinement, peakstresses, etc. maybe it is possible to do a kind of training/workshop, where i can learn more about these things.

Does anybody know a training/workshop (in the Netherlands/in english or Europe) which i can join to learn more about details in analyzing fea models?

Hope to hear from you.
Regards,
Paul

RE: training/workshop analyzing fea models.

Have you looked into NAFEMS, nafems.org?

Or you could try to correlate test data to predictions .....

RE: training/workshop analyzing fea models.

i use a commercial FE code called abaqus a lot.

i've found their training courses to be very helpful over the years.

they offer courses on a wide variety of topics and the instructors have always impressed.

they have also been willing to deliver bespoke courses covering a range of topics.

i'd assume most FE software vendors and re-sellers offer similar courses.

There is also a newer site that I've only gotten through some of so far. It is not going to hold your hand through your own projects but so far it is giving pretty good practical info. It is called EnterFEA.

Research Report - What’s the State of Nonlinear Simulation?
Simulation is an increasingly valuable tool across the product design workflow, but not all simulations are equal. We set out to determine how engineers and product designers make use of specialized analyses, how they incorporate nonlinear simulation into their work and how they rate the available software.

White Paper – Data Security and Know-How Protection
Our data is constantly exposed to the danger of being intercepted or stolen as it wends its way over global data networks. Data security measures and measures for protecting intellectual property should not, however, first be implemented when data is exchanged – companies must lay the foundation for these measures within their own organization.
