During this class, you will learn the how Autodesk Simulation Mechanical software can be used for construction industry applications. Autodesk Simulation Mechanical will be used to create a global model with fine local details, such as a bolted connection in a steel structure. We will also cover critical effects such as prestress of bolts, contact between parts, plastic deformation, and dynamic behavior that captures real behavior.

Key Learnings

  • Simulate structure failures to understand why they failed
  • Set up a global model with critical local detail
  • Get an insight into the structural performance of an assembly
  • Study the effect of prestressed bolts on your assemblies
