BCIT is planning for a substantial return to on-campus activity for the Winter 2022 term as informed by BC Provincial Health Officer guidelines. Refer to each course listing for details.
This course continues to explore the Finite Element Analysis (FEA) tools in SolidWorks Simulation software necessary to model, simulate and analyze mechanical parts and assemblies. The topics covered include advanced loading, large displacement, mixed meshing, FEA of assemblies with contacts, FEA of bolted/pinned structures, FEA of welded structures, design optimization with FEA, and frequency analysis of assemblies. Fatigue and non-linear analysis will be also presented at the introductory level.
This course isn't currently offered through BCIT Part-time Studies. Please check back next term, subscribe to receive email updates or
contact us with your comments or questions.
Upon successful completion of the course, the student will be able to:
Explain the limitations and applications of both linear static and non-linear FEA.
Apply structural advanced loading to both parts and assemblies.
Analyze pinned/bolted structures and assemblies using FEA software.
Implement various mixed meshing techniques.
Analyze welded structures and assemblies using FEA software.
Determine the natural frequencies and mode shapes of components and assembles.
Optimize designs of mechanical components and assemblies using FEA.
Analyze non-linear behaviour of mechanical parts and assemblies due to structural large displacement.
Effective as of Winter 2014
