Five-session eLearning course - 2.5 hours per session
Composite systems include many more factors than conventional metallic structures.
The objective of this course is to break down the composite analysis process into clearly defined steps, give an overview of the physics involved and show how to successfully implement practical solutions using Finite Element Analysis.
Moving to composite structures will allow you to explore:
Composite materials span:
The challenge for the designer and analyst is to make decisions on the type of idealization and level of detail required in the Finite Element Analysis. Your design may include:
Analysis is further complicated by:
We can help you plan a strategy for dealing with these challenges.
All attendees on the course will be able to download a fully functioning Composite Stiffness and Strength Calculator, together with user guide.
Many past attendees have found this tool a useful supplement to post processing available in their usual Finite Element solution. Attendees will be entitled to future upgrades. Transition to standalone app coming soon.
Travel and training budgets are always tight! The eLearning course has been developed to help you meet your training needs.
If your company has a group of engineers, or specific training requirements across any subjects, please contact us to discuss options.
*Note: While we will make every attempt to follow the course outline, the schedule may be shifted at some point. However, ample notice will be given prior to the start of the course date with regards to the course schedule.
Telephony surcharges may apply for attendees who are located outside of North America, South America and Europe. These surcharges are related to individuals who join the audio portion of the web-meeting by calling in to the provided toll/toll-free teleconferencing lines. We have made a VoIP option available so anyone attending the class can join using a headset (headphones w/ microphone) connected to the computer. There is no associated surcharge to utilize the VoIP option, and is actually encouraged to ensure NAFEMS is able to keep the e-Learning course fees as low as possible. Please send an email to the e-Learning coordinator (e-learning @ nafems.org ) to determine if these surcharges may apply to your specific case.
Just as with a live face-to-face training course, each registration only covers one person. If you plan to register a large group (5+), please send an email to e-learning @ nafems.org in advance for group discounts.
