Pro-Mechanica - Tips & Tricks:Free Tutorial:FEA concepts

Thanks Friends, Thanks for your over whelming support I am able to get Frequent visitors than New Visitors which is a good sign. The articles what I post on my web is making sense to everyone of you. Its really great feeling, to serve you better please rate my article and give me your feedback/request on each article and topic.

Well this time again I am going to speak about FEA segment, its quite interesting when I was searching for FEA materials and Learning Resources. Atlast I ended up in finding a beautiful webpage where Design engineers would love explore many things. This great work has been done by TsdEngineering,on-line consulting and project consulting team in FEA.

The Mission is...

"To improve the productivity of customers and the quality of their products."

Pro mechanicaTo accomplish this mission TSD Engineering promotes the integration of mechanical design simulation and optimization tools into the front of the design process. This allows designs to be optimized during the concept phase where the engineers have the most flexibility. It has been found that an investment in time up front, getting a concept that works and is optimized will save time and money with fewer changes through the completion of the project.

TSD Engineering was originally founded in 1982 by Jim Holst.Jim has used many analysis, simulation and optimization tools over the years including NASTRAN, ANSYS and COSMOS. His current tool of choice is Pro/MECHANICA by Parametric Technology Corporation (PTC). He believes this is the best and most productive tool available for use in the design process.

The thing which matters most for us is Tips And Tricks used in FEA, its so wonderful to see such topics like Modeling,Solving Solution Convergence Problems,Debugging Meshing Problems,Assemblies,Vibration,Heat Transfer and Other Useful Web Links.

On the other side when you look at the Index, there lot of technical terms involved in FEA are defined with picture and graphs to understand these terms in a much easier way. Some of them are Acoustic, Convergence,Defeaturing,Damping,FEA basics,Meshing,Fatigue etc., I am sure you will glad to see such things which are explained in a such a way that even beginner can learn FEA quickly.
