Yes, you too can use Finite Element Analysis (FEA)!

Do you want to use Autodesk Inventor's Finite Element Analysis (FEA) module, but you don't want to deal with all the heavy math? The Inventor 2020-2021: FEA Made Simple course is your solution. It shows you how to check your work with simple math. You'll learn simple and fundamental concepts that leverage into an advanced understanding of FEA.

You'll practice applying FEA and interpreting the quality of the results. You'll also learn tips and tricks that will improve the quality of your results. If you can divide and multiply you can learn how to use FEA.

For the mathematical genius, we've got you covered as well. You can compare your difficult calculations to the simple calculations performed in this course. You'll see that the simple calculations are just as close to Autodesk Inventor FEA Simulation Results as complex calculations. David Melvin, PE breaks the process into simple to understand steps that even the mathematically inclined will appreciate.

The Autodesk Inventor 2020-2021: FEA Made Simple course also explains the fundamentals of stress analysis and how FEA works. You will learn about all the stresses, strain, and deflection, and you'll learn how each is applied.

An important aspect of the course is it shows you how to improve the accuracy of FEA analysis. Inventor FEA has different types of elements that can be applied to your studies, and which one you use makes a difference in the accuracy of the report. So the course explains how each element is different and why you would use one over the other in a particular study. You'll also learn how to change the density of elements to examine common problems like notch sensitivity or to speed the analysis process.

The Autodesk Inventor 2020-2021: FEA Made Simple course is a must see. Both beginner and advanced Inventor FEA users will benefit from watching this course.
