This 4-session, live online course covers a broad range of solution types, beyond the usual natural frequency and dynamic response methods. This allows more physical phenomena to be investigated and simulated using dynamics in FEA.
The major topics are:
You can either attend the live sessions or
take the course on-demand at your leisure.
NAFEMS e-learning gives you the best of both worlds, giving you real, practical knowledge that you can use day-to-day to improve your analyses.
Designers and engineers who have some familiarity with dynamic analysis.
Note: homework is purely voluntary!
Students will join the audio portion of the meetings by utilizing the VoIP (i.e. headset connected to the computer via headphone and microphone jacks) or by calling into a standard toll line. If you are interested in additional pricing to call-in using a toll-free line, please send an email to: e-learning @ nafems.org .
This is a four-session online training course, with each session lasting for approximately 2.5/3 hours, depending on homework submissions, questions & discussions.
|DVco24||Discuss the variables in an Impact Analysis.|
|DVco31||Discuss the term non-proportional damping.|
|DVco44||Explain the terms Implicit Solution and Explicit Solution for the time integration of the equations of motion and the appropriate associated problem classes of dynamic analyses.|
|DVco49||Discuss possible sources of nonlinearity in a dynamic problem.|
|DVco50||Explain the term Power Spectral Density.|
|DVco54||Discuss various approaches to Seismic Analysis and highlight relevant philosophy and analysis considerations.|
|DVco56||Explain the term response spectra.|
|DVap9||Employ an analysis system for the determination of response in a range of linear and nonlinear systems, to random vibration.|
|DVap10||Employ an analysis system for the simulation of impact.|
|DVap7||Employ an analysis system for the determination of transient response in a range of linear and nonlinear systems.|
|DVap8||Employ an analysis system for the determination of seismic response in a range of linear and nonlinear systems.|
Not Available to Attend this Time?
Would you like us to notify you when the next course on Advanced Dynamic FEA is open for enrollment? If so, add yourself to the eLearning Waitlist!
Note: Daylight Savings will occur in late-October and early-November. We will always default to the Pacific time zone (first listed); to check against your time zone around the daylight saving change, click here.
All sessions are recorded and made available to attendees following the end of the live class. It is perfectly acceptable to attend this class using recordings only.
*The length of each session can vary, depending on Q&A, homework responses, and other contributing factors.
Feedback from former Dynamic FE Analysis e-Learning students:
"This course did everything right. From organization to presentation to interaction, this is a good model for what online training should be."
"Tony's command over the subject and excellent teaching skills made this course worthwhile."
"Super! Doesn't get better than this. Good idea to start having e-Learning courses."
"I'm really happy not to pay a big fraction of my annual training budget to airlines and hotels. A BIG plus to e-learning."
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.
