In Detail

Finite Element Essentials in 3DEXPERIENCE 2021x introduces you to the powerful FEA simulation tools that are available in the SIMULIA software suite of the 3DEXPERIENCE business platform. Each chapter of this book uses step-by-step tutorials to guide you through the process of creating models and performing a wide range of simulations and analysis.

The chapters of this book focus on covering the core material found in a standard Mechanical or Civil engineering curriculum worldwide. The book deals specifically with structural and thermal problems. Both static and transient cases are considered. Furthermore, nonlinearities at the material and geometric levels are treated in some chapters. All three standard element types—solids, beams, and shells—are represented in the book, and in one particular chapter, all three are present simultaneously.

Who this book is for

This book is suitable for any mechanical or civil engineering student, beyond their second year, who has basic familiarity with the 3DEXPERIENCE platform and access to the integrated application. Any practicing designer or engineer will likely benefit greatly from going through this book as well.
