    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.

    Key Learnings

    • 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
