Short Training Courses
As part of the NAFEMS World Congress 2017, attendees will have access to many training courses being held over the course of the congress. These courses will be taken by NAFEMS tutors, and cover topics as diverse as Non-Linear Analysis, Practical CFD, Simulation Credibility and Introduction to SPDM. Registered Congress attendees will be asked to pre-register before the event.
Joints and Connections in FEA
Most structures involve some form of jointing or connection. This overview looks at popular FEA methods for simulating mechanical joints, welding and bonding. Different idealization approaches and element types will be reviewed. Hints and tips will be developed based on identifying key analysis objectives.
Shock Part 1
Classical base excitation pulses will be covered for both time domain and shock response spectrum analysis. Seismic and pyrotechnic shock will be discussed. The tripartite SRS format will be introduced.
Elements of Turbulence Modelling
The objective of turbulence modelling is to develop equations that will predict the time-averaged velocity, pressure, and temperature fields without calculating the complete turbulent flow pattern as a function of time.
Shock Part 2
Techniques will be demonstrated for synthesizing a time history to satisfy an SRS. The SRS method will be extended to multi-degree-of-freedom systems. The shock severity relationship in terms of pseudo velocity and stress will also be covered.
