Mechanical concept design : Stress simulation in Fusion 360
What you'll learn
- Fundamentals of Finite Element Analysis - Terminologies and Basic Math behind it
- Develop confidence while performing simulation with Fusion 360
- Developing structural conceptualization skills to solve design problems as in industry.
- Various Case studies dealing with Weight optimization , stress reduction and Stiffening.
- Basic Understanding of Mechanical design concepts
- Basic understanding of Strength of materials and Static mechanics
One of the key skills in the larger skillset of mechanical design is designing and improving structures.
Any mechanical system consists of two fundamental elements Structures and Mechanisms.
Structures are Static load bearing and Mechanisms are moving , functional elements.
Fusion 360 is a popular Engineering design software and the IN-Design CAE simulation module is very useful in validating designs. This course focusses on Static Stress analysis using Fusion 360 simulation
