    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
