English [Auto]
Understand the basics and fundamentals related to finite element analysis
Learn how to model your system using design moduler
Learn how to generate the mesh and obtain mesh independent system
Learn how to set the right preprocessing and postprocessing
Understand the different types of contacts, supports and loads
Learn how to comprimize the computational cost
Learn how to validate your FE-Solver results

This is a basic course that focuses on finite element analysis and its applications. The course provides an essential theoretical background for any FE solver user. The evolution of FEM, basic definitions, types of elements, analysis types, model fidelity, pre-processing and post-processing are all discussed with the aid of some mathematical and technical applications. Besides, the course includes 11 static analysis tutorials on Ansys software to link the theoretical background to the software application. Finally, there are many assignments and working files annexed to the lectures, to allow students the opportunity to apply what they learn on their own, also the slides are attached to lecture for the student’s convenience.

8
Elasticity analysis-Parametric Design (2)

In this lecture, a simply supported structural steel beam, exposed to  uniform distributed load, is studied and validated to analytical    methods. The lecture focuses on the following:

-Analytical study

-Split face

-Applying distributed loads

-Convergence

-Construction geometries

-Charts

-Validation 

9
Plasticity analysis

In this lecture, the plasticity of a cantilever structural steel beam,  exposed to high concentrated load, is studied and validated to basic  knowledge related to material plastic behavior.The lecture focuses on the following:

-Theoretical background

-Imprint faces

-Time steps

-Loading and unloading

-Charts

-Spring back 

10
Design of bolted connections

This lecture covers the following:

-Basic knowledge of bolted connections

-Bolts' pretension

-Contacts definition

Project(1)- Design of pump assembly
12
Project(2)- Design of pressure vessel- Axissymetric

Stainless steel pressure vessel and structural steel cap.

•All fillets are 5mm radius.

4 bolts, 190mm PCD fixing the cap to a suppressed body.

0.5 Mpa pressure inside the vessel.

You can view and review the lecture materials indefinitely, like an on-demand channel.
Definitely! If you have an internet connection, courses on Udemy are available on any device at any time. If you don't have an internet connection, some instructors also let their students download course lectures. That's up to the instructor though, so make sure you get on their good side!
