Structural Model Creation Essentials

Introduction to finite element modeling in the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform and teaches you how to prepare finite element models for simulation

Course Objective

This course is an introduction to finite element modeling in the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform. It teaches you how to prepare finite element models for simulation.

The course covers the following topics:

  • Meshing
  • Materials
  • Section Properties
  • Connections
  • Rigid Bodies

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 and demonstrations. They are intended to provide users with the experience of running and trouble-shooting actual simulations.
