RCI will be conducting a four-part Webinar on Best Practices for FEA modeling starting in February 2014. The series will include separate 45-minute lectures on the following topics critical to producing reliable models in a production environment.
- Introduction to engineering modeling
- Building the model you want
- Model Checks Pre/Post
- Presenting Modeling Results
Agendas for the meeting are provided on the signup page here. Attendance is limited to 25 people via our video conferencing WebEx account.
Presenter: Eric J. Roulo
Dates: 2/6/2014, 2/13/2014, 2/21/2014, 2/28/2014
Background: Eric has been in an Aerospace production environment since he started his professional career at Space Systems/Loral in 1999. Having worked at over 15 companies since becoming a contractor and consultant, he has seen a wide variety of methods and approaches to utilizing Finite Element Models (FEMs) to calculate margins and provide verification for performance requirements. This is will be an in-the-trenches, actionable set of presentations that start with the philosophical approach to engineering modeling and then provide detailed guidance for implementing those strategies in NX/Nastran and Femap.
