We offer a range of services to help your staff become more productive with FEA:
We guarantee that each day of our Training or Analyst Mentoring will save weeks of self-learning time for the FEA analyst.
EnDuraSim provides specific training courses in Femap and NX Nastran, plus general training in the principles of FEA for engineers, managers and FEA project auditors.
Effective training in the proper application of finite element analysis software is essential to a company’s and individual’s engineering outcomes. With EnDuraSim’s depth of practical simulation expertise, the return-on-investment through training is maximised. Situations commonly arise where even long-term FEA users discover superior techniques and features after having completed training. Training is focused on accelerating user productivity with a combination of theoretical and (primarily) hands-on workshop application of the software.
Our Practical FEA for Engineers and Managers course is focused on the techniques and traps of simulation, with less focus on any specific software package. This course is directed at those people who must manage and understand FEA, its capabilities and limitations. The software content of this training course is only to highlight critical aspects of quality analysis, which are common to any mechanical/structural simulation, irrespective of the FEA package used. The course covers similar material and processes that would be used by EnDuraSim when auditing other analysts’ models and results, to understand the quality and accuracy of the work performed.
Courses are also offered for Femap with NX Nastran advanced solutions (Dynamics, Nonlinear, Thermal, Advanced Non-Linear, Optimization and Flow). Courses are scheduled regularly and can also be tailored specifically to a company’s requirements, and run onsite at the company location. Whether the training is public or in-house, some time is dedicated to “user requests” of simulation activities relevant to each attendee.
Specialist training can also be provided in the Femap API
to further enhance analyst productivity. API (and macro) programming provides the greatest scope to improve the speed, repeatability and control of repetitive, complex or error-prone FEA operations. API training includes general training in the Femap API as well as working on specific user-requested API programs. See our Femap API page
for some free examples of API programs.
“Analyst Mentoring” provides on-site, “on-the-project” Femap with NX Nastran training. Trainees sit alongside EnDuraSim staff (offsite or onsite) whilst performing a client FEA project. Analyst Mentoring focuses on progressing the FEA project as quickly as possible – whilst teaching software operations, practical simulation techniques and tips/tricks/traps for designers/analysts in a real project environment – without taking company staff resources off-line. We suggest this activity be performed in blocks exceeding two consecutive days, and will engage according to customer requirements.
