Collapse Expand


In this class, attendees will learn about factor of safety, failure, and how it relates to linear and nonlinear material properties and study types. It is important to know when a design will fail and how it will fail, and this will be highly dependent on using the right material properties and the right type of simulation study.

Key Learnings

  • Understand how factor of safety results can be used to judge a design's performance
  • Understand the limits of linear simulation studies
  • Understand when to use nonlinear simulation studies
  • Understand the types of nonlinear material properties
