Linear Structural Validation Essentials

Course Objective

This course is an introduction to performing structural simulation for designers using the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform, including product performance assessment under linear static conditions. The 3DEXPERIENCE Platform provides seamless integration between CAD, lifecycle and simulation so that your simulation automatically reacts when you update the design.

The course covers the following topics:

  • Searching and managing simulation data.
  • Performing a structural simulation using the Linear Structural Validation app, including:
    • Linear statics
    • Natural frequency extraction
    • Thermal (steady-state)
  • Review the results of the simulation using contour plots, animations and other visualization features.

The course is divided into lectures and workshops. The course's workshops are integral to the training. They are designed to reinforce concepts presented during the lectures. They are intended to provide users with the experience of running and trouble-shooting actual simulations.

Who should attend

Product designers who will perform structural simulations to select and fine-tune designs in the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform will benefit from attending this class. This course is intended for the following role:

  • Structural Designer
