Vibration Analysis using ANSYS FEA and Vibration Measurement for Engineering Applications

Course Date:

Registration Period:

16 hours / 2 days


Mode of Training:
Classroom and/or workshop/laboratory

Singapore Polytechnic

Course Introduction

This short course is to let participants understand the finite element method for solving engineering problems (i.e., vibration).  The use of commercial software (ANSYS) will be used to demonstrate the various vibrations as well as to validate the vibration measurements. To obtain the vibration measurements, some practical vibration measurement techniques will be taught and this is usually not provided by external simulation software training.

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 FEA software to solve vibration problems
3. Describe the use of vibration equipment and tools to perform vibration measurement
