ONLINE Intro to SimLab
Instructor Led
    Cost: FREE
    SimLab is a process oriented, feature based finite element modeling software that allows you to quickly and accurately simulate engineering behavior of complex assemblies. SimLab automates simulation- modeling tasks to reduce human errors and time spent manually creating finite element models and interpreting results.
Class Format
  • Online, Instructor led
  • 4 sessions, each 2 hours from 1 - 3 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (In-class exercises, plus homework exercises)
Prerequisites A basic knowledge of finite element analysis (recommended).

Software Required All exercises will be solved in SimLab v14.2. You will need to have access to SimLab v14.2 on your machine. Please contact the administrator if you are using a different version (14.0, 14.1 or 14.3)
