Finite Element Analysis (FEA) has been an indispensable tool for design simulation for several decades but this wide spread use has been limited to simple types of analyses. Relatively recently, more advanced analyses have given easy to use interfaces enabling design engineers to simulate problems formerly reserved for analysts. This three-session web seminar targets the FEA users who wish to explore those advanced analysis capabilities.

The course demonstrates how to move past the ubiquitous linear structural analysis and solve structural nonlinear problems characterized by nonlinear material, large displacements, buckling or nonlinear connectors. The discussion will help participants identify, set up and solve complex nonlinear problems and as well as use results of nonlinear analysis to support the product design process.

Learning Objectives
By participating in this web seminar, you will be able to:

  • Identify a need for a nonlinear structural analysis
  • Identify the types of nonlinearities
  • Employ correct problem definition and solution strategy
  • Select applicable modeling techniques
  • Assess and implement results of nonlinear analysis

Who Should Attend
The course is intended for design engineers who already have a foundational understanding of FEA but need to elevate its use to an advanced level to predict product behavior more closely. Familiarity or experience with FEA equivalent to or as covered in the Finite Element Analysis for Design Engineers web seminar or on-demand course is recommended.

Topical Outline
Session 1

  • Modal Analysis and Linear Buckling Analysis
    • Analogies and differences between modal analysis with pre-stress linear buckling analysis
    • Linear buckling analysis as an entry to nonlinear analysis
    • Structural stability
Session 2
  • Nonlinear Geometry Analysis
    • Large displacement
    • Stress stiffening/softening effect
    • Force and displacement boundary conditions
  • Contact Analysis
    • Contact
    • Interference
    • Bolt connectors
Session 3
  • Nonlinear Material Analysis
    • Plasticity
    • Residual stress
    • Hyper-elasticity

He contributes regularly to several engineering publications focusing on the implementation of CAE methods into the product development process. He is a member of SAE International and the Association of Professional Engineers of Ontario. Dr. Kurowski obtained his M.Sc. and Ph.D. in Applied Mechanics from Warsaw Technical University and completed postdoctoral work at Kyoto University.

Registration Information
Registration for this live web seminar is available on a per-person basis, similar to purchasing a seat in a classroom. Participants attend an online session from work or home; anywhere with a PC with internet access (at least 56K) and a telephone. The fee includes one connection to the conference calls (toll free telephone number provided for U.S. and select countries*) and assigned personal ID number; one connection to SAE's online training center (via WebEx); and access to a secure course in the SAE Learning Center that contains the presentations, class session recordings, supplemental materials, and assignments.

Registrations will be accepted until 5:00 p.m. the day before the start of the web seminar, but early registration is encouraged to allow for pre-course set-up and instructions.

*Global toll-free telephone numbers are provided for many countries outside the U.S., but are limited to those on the WebEx call-in toll-free number list. Check here to see if your country has a global call-in toll free telephone number for this web seminar. If your country is not listed, you may still connect using the US/Canada Call-in toll number or Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP).

Although WebEx Training Manager will automatically launch when you join the web seminar, you or your system administrator are encouraged to download the plug-in in advance to help ensure successful setup. Click here, then follow the onscreen instructions.

NOTE: The course presentation will be recorded and made available for 30 days to those who register by the deadline.

Multiple Seat Discount - 50% off more than one!

  1. If you participated in the SAE Finite Element Analysis for Design Engineers, Vibration Analysis Using Finite Element Analysis or FEA Beyond Basics: Thermal Analysis web seminars within one year prior to the start date of this web seminar and paid full list or member price, you may request a 50% discount off the list price of this course.

    OR

  2. Register one individual at the appropriate list or member price, then register as many additional employees at half off the list price. To receive the discount, register all individuals at the same time or mention the confirmation number for the first registrant. The offer is good for only the same web seminar and offering dates. All registrants will receive a personal account and opportunity for CEUs.

Discount applies to web seminar(s) of equal or lesser list fee. Registration by phone with SAE Customer Service is required to take advantage of these discounts.

Cancellations
Can't attend on the date/time above? The presentation will be recorded and made available for 30 days to those who are registered, regardless of availability for the live session. If you still need to cancel, transfer to a future offering, or designate a substitute, a full refund is issued if you notify SAE at least 14 days prior to the web seminar start date. If less than 14 days prior, please contact SAE Customer Service to discuss options*. NOTE: SAE reserves the right to cancel web seminar and cannot be held responsible for related costs incurred by registrants other than the registration fee.

*Cancellation penalties may apply.
