In this course, students will learn the tools necessary to model and analyze machine components and structures using Finite Element Analysis (FEA). Students will analyze mechanical objects under static and dynamic loading using SolidWorks Simulation software. Emphasis will be placed on modeling techniques used for FEA structural stress-strain, frequency, and thermal analysis.
BCIT reserves the right to cancel courses. In the event of a part-time studies course cancellation, you will be notified at least two business days prior to the course start. Please ensure that your contact information is current.
This course offering is in progress. Please check back next term or subscribe to receive email updates.
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
Recognize the basic concepts of FEA using fundamental knowledge of mathematics.
Model structural engineering problems using CAD/CAE software.
Proficiently use commercial FEA SolidWorks Simulation software.
Apply FEA techniques as a design tool in engineering product design and development process.
Present FEA results in a form of FEA project report.
Effective as of Spring/Summer 2012
