Who is the course for

This is a three day course covering the fundamentals of mechanics of solids and their extensions to finite element analysis techniques. It will be of interest to engineers and managers working in design using stress analysis techniques.

A technical education and background is recommended but an engineering degree is not required.


3 Days

Course Aims

The objective of the course is to cover the fundamentals of mechanics of solids, as covered in undergraduate engineering programmes, and to show how this fundamental understanding should be used in interpreting finite element analysis results.

Days 1 and 2 focus on the fundamentals of mechanics of solids covered in undergraduate engineering programmes – force equilibrium, calculation of stresses (axial, bending, torsion and shear), calculation and measurement of strain, stress & strain transformations (Mohr’s Circle, principal directions, stress/strain combination measures), deflections. Day 3 extends these principles, through a series of analysis models, to the interpretation and understanding of finite element analysis results.

The course is run in an interactive format with multiple worked examples over 3 days (consecutive or 1 day per week over a 3 week period).

Course Material

Comprehensive course material is provided in electronic format to all attendees. These include derivation of fundamental principles, multiple worked examples and course problems.
