A look into Finite Element Analysis mechanical simulation inside Autodesk Inventor with Autodesk Nastran In-CAD. The presentation will explain the concepts of FEA simulation to validate product design and predict product behavior within the design application empowering designers to explore options as early as possible and reduce iteration costs. This enables designers to improve performance, reduce the chance of failure and reduce cost all without leaving their design environment.
Jerran completed his degree in Computer Science at Swinburne University of Technology. He worked with the Australian Defence Science and Technology Organisation on visualization of virtual environments and tactical simulation before joining Autodesk in 2012 as a Senior Software Engineer in the Simulation product group. He has over 8 years' experience in 3D graphical visualization and experience with development of CAD, 3D modelling and data visualization application development. This experience has been leveraged for work with the Simulation Emerging Products and Technologies group to present complex simulation results in an easy-to-understand manner.
Ibrahim Abdelsayed is the principal engineer for Alphaprise a small engineering consulting firm operating in the steel, manufacturing and mining industries in Australia. He specialises in design and verification of high risk plant for the Australian market. Alphaprise often uses simulation to model and analyse engineering problems not amenable to hand calculations. He previously worked at James Hardie Research as a research engineer and with ABB Australia as lead mechanical engineer for their large distribution transformer division. He started out as a graduate engineer working for a pressure vessel manufacturing company. He was fortunate to have his first employer support him through his post graduate degree in mechanical engineering at UNSW.
