FEA Made Simple


Leverage Your FEA Studies!

Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is easier to learn than you might think. You don’t need to know how mathematical matrices work or how to perform complicated mathematics. You just need to know how to use the SolidWorks FEA module. We show you how to do this with confidence in the results.

You’ll start by breaking down the overall process into simple to understand steps. With each step you learn more about what to do and why each step is taken. You’ll also learn the details needed to make an accurate analysis. When you’re finished, you’ll know how to simulate loads and the stresses, strains, and deflections produced by them. You’ll also know the accuracy of the study and whether to trust or not trust the results.

Mathematics is not your strong suit? No problem. This course uses simple math to analyze and check your work. You’ll also learn simple graphical methods of confirming the accuracy of study results, which requires no math. By the end of this course you’ll have the tools you need to accurately and confidently check your work.

You will learn practical ways of working with SolidWorks FEA Simulation. So you’ll be able to use it as a tool instead of a mysterious question mark.
