In-company course: ‘using Finite Element Method effectively’  ToImprove.002

A training for engineers is offered to apply Finite Element Method (FEM) or Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to their field of interest. All aspects of the modern analysis process are taken into account. The right approach proves pivotal to the success of a simulation project. Physixfactor can play role in this and has developed tailored courses that address the problems in your field. You may have a look on the website of Mikrocentrum, an organisation that promotes innovation. Its training insitute is Engenia. Physixfactor delivers its FEM courses at Engenia.

Course on FEM

If you are interested in a course or consultancy on the topic of FEM, Physixfactor can help you. Apart from general FEA the following topics will be addressed:

Detail Contruction Container

  • General set-up for a FEM simulation according to the latest advancements.
  • What parts of my simulation problem do I really take into account?
  • What multi-physical disciplines do I want to analyse, or can I simulate them separately?
  • How can I organise my mesh effectively to keep the calculation time in control?
  • What is the best solver strategy to calculate my problem?
  • Is the result reliable? Is it necessary to increase the accuracy?
  • What are the advantages and disadvantages of 2D versus fully 3D modelling?
  • How do I need to interpret the output?

This and more will be addressed in the Finite Element Method course. You can also contribute your own case that will be worked out with the items above. This way the course is effective in two ways. You learn how to apply FEM, and you can model your company’s specific case. Physixfactor guarantees that this case can be presented at your company.
