Subject : Product Design and Analysis
Course Overview:

Finite element analysis (FEA) is a computerized method for predicting how a product reacts to real-world forces, vibration, heat, fluid flow, and other physical effects. Assembly FEM represents an assembly level approach to creating a finite element model. NX Nastran is a finite element analysis (FEA) program. This course provides a clear understanding of Assembly FEM in NX Nastran and how to use assembly FEM (.afm) files to support superior workflows for analyzing large assemblies.

Learning Outcome:

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to understand the structure of an Assembly FEM file, and work with it in terms of mapping, adding connections, and performing FEM analysis. Key topics covered include:

  • Introduction to Assembly FEM
  • File structure of Assembly FEM
  • Workflow of Assembly FEM
  • Creating an Assembly FEM file
  • Mapping assembly components to an existing FEM file
  • Mapping assembly components to new FEM file
  • Adding connections to connect the FEM components
  • Ignoring CAD component mapping
  • Resolving the label conflicts
  •  Performing analysis using Assembly FEM files


Eligibility Criteria:

  • Mechanical Engineering Students and Professionals
  • Anyone with knowledge of any CAE software.
