TRAINING PROGRAM

This course will allow you to discover how to make an analysis using finite elements on a part or on an existing assembly. You will explore the possibilities of adding virtual parts to a model. 

You will also discover in-depth how to create connections between assembly components, how to set appropriate connection properties, and how to create an analysis assembly from existing mesh parts.

Advanced pre-processing tools:

• Rigid and flexible bodies (virtual parts)

• Rigid/flexible bodies + springs

• Rigid/flexible bodies + contact elements

• Advanced restraints on virtual parts

Adaptive calculation:

• Defining mesh adaptability parameters according

• to the error criteria and the number of attempts

• Calculations history  

Introduction to assemblies:

• The different approaches (structural analysis through the

connection between components or analysis assembly)

• Assumptions linked to linear static analysis

Defining areas to be connected to assemble components:

• General analysis connection

• Point analysis connections (for simulating welding points)

• Line analysis connection (for simulating welding seams)

• Surface connection (for simulating glued joints)

• Points to points connection

• Point and line self-connection (on a single component) 

Defining physical properties associated with connected areas in order to assemble components:

• Welded connection, welded + spring

• Rigid and flexible connections

• Smooth connections without contact

• Smooth connections with contact and without friction

• Welding seams 

• Glued joint connection

• Bolt tightening and bracing connections

• Virtual bolt tightening connection

• Personalised connection (combination of physical properties)

Analysis Assemblies:

• Defining analysis assemblies

• Why use analysis assembly

• The analysis assembly process

• What is a Representation

• How to link a representation to a part

• What is the Analysis Assembly 2D viewer

• How to use the Analysis Assembly 2D viewer
