******************* Course Structure  ***************************The course will take you on exciting journey from beginner to expert in meshing using ANSA ,Main theme of course is to get insights into Creating and modifying CAD/Geometry , Meshing and Connections.We will start with Theory of FEA , where you will get familiar with critical ways in which you can find solution to given problem and the logic behind most of the CAE software’s .Then we will proceed toward meshing where we will learn about 1d, 2d, 3d meshing & guidelines that one has to follow while meshing.In meshing section we will do hands on exercises of many components and try to implement guidelines that we have studied. We will talk about quality checks and quality parameter in much detail along with the mathematical formulation of quality parameters.Then we will move towards building assembly of various components using connections. In connection we will explore various capabilities of ANSA while doing connections and explore for the possibilities of importing connections from existing file to new one.At the end of to each section we will take small project to implement overall summary of the section.Last section will be placed for your doubts. I will update this session with answers to all of your doubtBelow is the brief outline of the course and various modules involved in the course.Theory of FEA/CAEObjective of this module is to get you familiar with FEA/CAE.Understanding problem solving techniques.How FEA works.Introduction to ANSAGraphical User InterfaceView ManipulationImport and Export Visualization optionsEntity selection optionVisibility OptionFocus GroupMeasureTopologyPlaying with CADTolerance SettingsGeometry Cleanup4 Examples on geometry cleanupCreating PointsPoints on COGCurve CreationSurface Creation : PlaneProperty (PID) Creation Options Introduction to 2D MeshingOverviewMidsurface using OffsetMidsurface using Skin – Part 1Element Shape/TypeLength FunctionIntroduction to Quality CriteriaMeshing AlgorithmsMeshing Guidelines : Washer, fillet and tria elementsCut, Join & ReleasePasteSplit Element QualityOverviewAspect RatioWarpageSkewnessJacobian Min/Max Angle/LengthTetra CollapseVolumetric SkewSurface/2D Meshing Examples2 Examples on 2D Meshing Introduction to 3D MeshingOverview3D Element ShapeDefining VolumesUnstructured Meshing AlgorithmsTetra FEMTetra FEM and Hexa InteriorExample – CrankshaftTranslateSweepOffsetRevoluteMapExtrude3D/Volume Meshing ExamplesExample : Structured Meshing  Example : Tetra MeshingIntroduction to ConnectionsOverviewSpot WeldsGumdrop ConnectionAutomatic Bolt ConnectionsManual Bolt ConnectionRobscanRivetAdhesivesMiscellaneousTransform Functions : TranslateTransform Functions : Symmetry & RotateTransform Functions : Transform & ScaleIf you have any doubt fell free to contact me.So Enroll now and start this exciting journey with me.******************* Course Updates  ***************************1.
