|Based on the finite elements method CATIA User Companion for Extended Structural Analysis describes tools, used in Advanced Structural Analysis. It covers 3 main areas: assembly analysis, dynamic analysis and expert analysis provided with the Elfini solver.
First lesson. After an introduction to the Generative Assembly Structural Analysis workbench, Companion explains the different types of connection technologies that can be defined between parts in an assembly. Companion guides the user in his/her choice of a targeted mechanical behavior.
A second lesson covers the advanced tools provided by Elfini Structural Analysis such as post-processing and analysis data management.
A third lesson focuses on dynamic response solved with Elfini.
At the end of each lesson, the user can assess his/her understanding of the lessons through different hands-on exercises.
