Training Courses & Workshops


We understand the importance of training and professional development to you and your organization; therefore, we have decided to offer all NRC22 Americas attendees with a variety of training short-courses over the 2.5-day program, at no additional cost.

With over 10 hours of free NAFEMS accredited training courses available at NRC22 Americas, be sure to make a dent in your professional development hours (PDH). We will provide a certificate of completion for each course completed!

Please note: additional NAFEMS courses may be added, agenda space permitting.

NAFEMS Courses Offered

Effective Postprocessing of Structural Analyses

T. Abbey (FE Training)
The range of post-processing options can be bewildering. However, understanding how to interrogate stress results is key to effective FEA. A road map is developed that shows how to use Von Mises, Cartesian and Principal stresses in a logical and authoritative manner. Examples of contour and XY plotting are shown. Load vectors and free body diagrams are also discussed.


Nonlinear Analysis

T. Abbey (FE Training)
Many problems facing engineers are nonlinear in nature, where the response of a structure cannot be simply assessed using linear assumptions. One of the most difficult tasks facing an engineer is to decide whether a nonlinear analysis is really needed and if so what degree of nonlinearity should be applied. This overview will examine these issues, and look at the best ways of creating an analysis plan that matches key objectives.


Dynamic Finite Element Analysis

T. Abbey (FE Training)
This a short overview of the basics of dynamics analysis, building quickly from normal modes analysis to transient and frequency response. The session is packed with hints and tips on the most effective ways to set up these analyses - and some reminders about the implications of a dynamic environment for designers and analysts. Attendees qualify for a 15% discount on Tony's new NAFEMS book, "How to Perform Linear Dynamics Analysis."


Fatigue Analysis

T. Abbey (FE Training)
This short course gives some insight into the methods behind high and low cycle fatigue and fracture mechanics methods. How are they different? When do we use them? What are the implications for FEA?


CFD for Structural Designers and Analysts

K. Fouladi (Infomec Consulting)
This course aims to introduce the essential principles of fluid dynamics, important flow phenomena, and basics of CFD process to structural engineers for their multidisciplinary problems. This course provides a brief overview of the essential concepts and principles of fluid dynamics, CFD, turbulence, and heat transfer relevant to structural analyses through simple examples and case studies.


Introduction to Practical CFD

K. Fouladi (Infomec Consulting)
Through a simple and moderately technical approach, this course covers topics such as the role of CFD, basic formulation, governing equations and use of model equations, steps in CFD process, need for turbulence modeling, and CFD best practices.


Elements of Turbulence Modelling

K. Fouladi (Infomec Consulting)
This course is focused on understanding turbulence, need for turbulence modeling, and various modeling approaches. Discussions on the advantages and limitations of various models should help CFD users in selecting appropriate turbulence models for their simulations.
