This course will focus on the nonlinear study types within the simulation capabilities of Autodesk Fusion 360.Simulation should be an integral part of the design process to ensure that the design will perform as expected.Knowing when and how to leverage the nonlinear study types will help build your simulation skills.To answer the question of "when", we will consider the limitations of static stress and how Nonlinear Static Stress and Event Simulation go beyond those limitations.In order to answer the question of "how", we will examine the advanced material models (such as elasto-plastic and Mooney-Rivlin) and the options that we can and should utilize within the interface.
- Gain understanding of the limitations to linear static stress, and know when to employ nonlinear analysis
- Learn how to describe the 3 primary types of nonlinearity that would lead you to perform a nonlinear versus a static stress type of analysis
- Become familiar with the advanced material models that are available for nonlinear analysis
- Discover what actions need to be taken in order to set up your own nonlinear analysis within Fusion 360
As an enterprise simulation specialist at Autodesk, Inc., Michael Fiedler helps to provide proactive and reactive support in the area of simulation to Autodesk's Enterprise users. Michael obtained his bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering, and he worked with locomotives, steam turbines, and sheet metal hydroforming prior to getting involved with finite element analysis (FEA). He has been helping FEA software users via technical support, training, and web content since 1999, and he has been with Autodesk since 2009.
Lee Taylor is a Distinguished Research Engineer at Autodesk. Dr. Taylor is the author of numerous explicit dynamics finite element codes and has 30 years of experience in finite element analysis (FEA) development. He is the author of the Autodesk’s explicit dynamics software (formerly the NEi Explicit FEA product). He was the original principal developer of the ABAQUS/Explicit FEA product as well as the original principal investigator for Sandia National Laboratories ASCI code development project. Lee received a bachelor’s degree from the University of Texas, Austin in Civil Engineering. He also holds a master’s degree from the University of California, Berkeley, in Structural Engineering and Structural Mechanics, and a PhD for the University of Texas, Austin in Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics.
