Product Optimization through Finite Element Method

Date : 9 December, 2019 to 18 January, 2020

@ BIEC, 10th Mile, Tumkur Road, Madavara Post, Bangalore


The Finite Element Method is a powerful engineering analysis tool and has been widely used in engineering since it was introduced in the 1950s. The course on “Product Optimization through Finite Element Method” is 6 weeks comprehensive programme for fresh mechanical engineers who are aspiring to build their career as “Computer Aided Engineering - CAE Design Engineer” in manufacturing industry.
This course presents the theory and applications of the Finite Element Method (FEM) using ANSYS/HYPERWORKS. ANSYS Mechanical / HYPERWORKS are the Finite Element Analysis (FEA) tools that are widely used for analysing and solving complex mechanical problems. These tools are used to predict the behaviour of the components and sub-systems in the manufacturing and real-world environments. These soft wares globally supports engineering simulation solutions by delivering high quality products developed in lesser time through more information-based process. This course teaches FEM concepts and tool use in an integrated fashion. During the programme any one of the tool used at the discretion of the participants”
