Simulation Analysis for Mechanical Engineers

Provided by: Ivy Tech

The foundation of engineering design is often coupled with validation; Simulation is a great tool that allows engineers to test, validate, and modify designs before they become a physical prototype; When used early in the process for simulation driven design and throughout the development process, simulation can help drive the design, make informed design decisions, speed up time to production, and most importantly, identify and eliminate costly design mistakes; Like any other tool though, it must be used properly to yield the best results; In this course, we’ll explore the usage static stress simulation, shape optimization, thermal and other mechanical simulation types to better understand how we can apply these tools to everyday design problems;
