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.
- 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
James Herzing has been using the Autodesk Simulation Mechanical software for nearly 9 years, working in various positions that deal with customer issues, and trying to ensure their success. Currently, he works as part of the Industry Strategy and Marketing division as a member of the Go-to-Market team. He graduated from the Pennsylvania State University in 2004 with a BS in Mechanical Engineering and a minor in Engineering Mechanics. He has presented in 9 previous sessions at Autodesk University for both Simulation and Factory Design Suite.
