Course Introduction

This short course is to allow the participants to appreciate structural analysis with commercial (ANSYS) Finite Element Analysis (FEA) software for solving engineering problems with practical session to enhance the learning outcome. In addition, simulation training with lab practical testing session are not common in other training providers. This lab practical session will be conducted and is linked to the analysis simulation.

Course Objective

By the end of the course, participants will be able to:

1. Explain the principles of Finite Element Analysis (FEA) 
2. Apply the FEA using commercial ANSYS FEA software to solve structural problems
