Course Syllabus

On a daily basis we talk to companies in the likes of Tata Elxsi and Mahindra to fine tune our curriculum.

Week 01-Basics of FEA

  • In this module, you will study the fundamentals of Finite Element Analysis (FEA). FEA is a generic technique used to solve boundary value problems.

  • In this module, you will study the following topics
    • Geometry cleanup criteria files
    • MNode's creation & node editing

    • Order change, configuration edit, and element type

Week 05-Geometry Cleanup and Midsurface

  • In this module, you will learn to perform surface clean-up on a given geometry and to extract the mid-surface using an in-built tool, auto-mid-surface.
  • You will also learn how to clean up the surface manually because relying only on the auto-mid-surface option may give rise to a distorted surface while dealing with complex geometry.
  • Here is a list of topics that you will learn about in this module.
    • Surface clean up
    • Midsurface generation
    • Handling distorted surfaces

Week 06-2D Meshing Introduction and Examples

  • You will also learn how to handle the tria elements in the model.
    • Introduction to 2D meshing
    • 2D basic tools
    • Mesh flow
    • Handling tria element

Week 07-Quality Criteria

  • Here, is a list of key concepts that you will learn in this module,
    • 1D element quality check
    • 2D element quality check
    • Understanding the quality parameters for 2D meshing

Week 08-Advance 2D Meshing

  • In this module, you will learn how to do manual mid-surfacing when the auto-mid surfacing option fails. You will also learn how to handle geometry if it is symmetrical, normal check-in the model and its significance, and free edges along with their significance.
  • The following topics are covered in this
    • Manual mid-surface
    • Handling symmetric geometry
    • Free-edge checks
    • Normals check 

Week 09-3D Meshing

  • In this module, you will learn the different tools and techniques to generate a hexamesh for a given geometry.
  • You will also learn a variety of techniques to generate tetra meshes. You will also understand the quality checks for tetra elements and how to rectify areas that have failed these checks.
  • The following topics are covered in this module.
    • Hexa meshing
    • Tetra meshing
    • Different methods of tetra mesh generation
    • 3D element quality check

Week 10-Connectors

  • Sometimes, meshes are made with both 2D and 3D meshes that are interspersed.
  • Connectors help the computer understand that the interface is between two different kinds of meshes.
  • Connectors are time-saving features that are a must in large models.
  • In addition to this, connectors offer a way to let the computer know that two components have been seam welded.
    • Seam weld
    • Spot weld
    • Bolt connection
    • Spring element
    • Adhesive modelling-HEXA

Week 11-Batch Meshing

  • In this module, you will understand the uses of batch meshing and its applications in industries. You learn about the parameter file and criteria file, how they can be optimized for the requirements.
    • Here is a list of key concepts that you will learn in this module.
    • Understand quality parameter and criteria files
      Optimizing these files according to the requirement.

Week 12-Morphing Techniques and Macro Generation

  • In this module, you will learn about morphing, which can be done using constraints, volumes, and geometry.
  • Also, you will be working with the manipulation of TCL commands, running a TCL command using the inbuilt run options.
    • Morph constraints
    • Morph volumes
    • Map to geometry
    • Basic macro generation using TCL commands
