Shorten & Improve your FEA, Part 3: Post Processing and Results Visualization

DATE: January 15th, 2019
TIME: 1:00pm EST

 

SUMMARY: Femap is an advanced engineering simulation software program that creates finite element analysis models of complex engineering products and systems, and displays solution results. It can virtually model components, assemblies, or systems and determine the behavioral response for a given operating environment, while working with any commercially available solver; this gives the user a single, powerful interface for all of their analyses.

 

This Webinar focuses on the post processing capabilities of FEMAP. A rich set of visualization tools are included to interpret and view results. Comprehensive and easy to read reports can be generated using these tools. They include:

 

  1. Contour and criteria plots
  2. Deformed shape animations
  3. Dynamic cutting plane and iso surfaces
  4. XY plots
  5. Free body diagrams and grid point force balance output

Shorten & Improve your FEA, Part 1: Introduction to FEMAP and it’s Pre-Processing capabilities

DATE: On Demand
TIME: Anytime

 

SUMMARY: Femap is an advanced engineering simulation software program that creates finite element analysis models of complex engineering products and systems, and displays solution results. It can virtually model components, assemblies, or systems and determine the behavioral response for a given operating environment, while working with any commercially available solver; this gives the user a single, powerful interface for all of their analyses.

 

This Webinar will provide an introduction to the FEMAP suite of products and then take a detailed look at how it can be used to prepare models for analysis using powerful preprocessing tools. Here are some features and capabilities of the pre-processing tools:

 

  1. CAD-independent and can import geometrical data from all major CAD systems
  2. Once imported use the geometry analyzer to identify and highlight potentially problem areas
  3. Clean up problem areas
  4. A wealth of geometry creation and modification functions are available to help prepare models.

 

Shorten & Improve your FEA, Part 2: Finite Element Modeling and Meshing

DATE: On Demand
TIME: Anytime

 

SUMMARY: Femap is an advanced engineering simulation software program that creates finite element analysis models of complex engineering products and systems, and displays solution results. It can virtually model components, assemblies, or systems and determine the behavioral response for a given operating environment, while working with any commercially available solver; this gives the user a single, powerful interface for all of their analyses.

 

This Webinar will focus on the modeling and meshing capabilities of FEMAP and show how models can be meshed before submitting to the preferred solver. Capabilities included are:

 

  1. Finite Element Meshing – FEMAP’s 3D solid and surface meshers are tuned to generate high-quality meshes, providing well-shaped elements to ensure accurate results when solving
  2. Assembly Modeling – FEMAP supports assembly modeling, including automatic contact detection
  3. Beam Modeling – FEMAP supports beam modeling and meshing. This allows models comprising long components to be represented by one-dimensional elements.
  4. Composite Modeling – model and postprocess results on composite structures

 

Control Your Cost of Quality with VIS VSA

DATE: On Demand
TIME: Anytime

 

SUMMARY: Variation Analysis is a powerful dimensional analysis tool used for simulation of manufacturing and assembly processes to predict the amounts and causes of variation within a product. This allows us to reduce the negative impact of variation on product dimensional quality, ultimately reducing cost and time to market while optimizing product and process.

 

Built upon the CAD neutral, graphically rich, lightweight digital prototyping environment of Siemens Teamcenter Lifecycle visualization suite, Variation Analysis allows you to create a 3D digital prototype to simulate the production build process. This includes comprehensive representation of geometry, product variation (tolerances), assembly process variation (sequence, assembly attachment definition, tooling) and measurements. The 3D digital prototype allows us to predict if there will be any assembly build problems and identifies critical product dimensions before any physical parts are made or tooling is cut. By identifying these issues early in the product development process, tolerances (GD&T) and assembly processes (static and kinematic assembly operations) can be optimized.

 

Join Tata Technologies as we explore the capabilities and features found in Siemens Variation Analysis, and show how its implementation into your design process can benefit your end product quality and business bottom line.

 

Teamcenter Manufacturing, Part 2: Part Manufacturing

DATE: On Demand
TIME: Anytime

 

SUMMARY: Get products to market faster with more efficient, sustainable, agile capabilities. Mitigate the risk of late-stage change, which has the largest single impact to profitability. Reuse proven global production capabilities to optimize quality and performance. Learn how to leverage the Teamcenter PLM system to streamline manufacturing planning and operations, not just engineering.
Teamcenter for Manufacturing creates a single source of product and production knowledge which assures products are designed for manufacturability, while manufacturing plans are synchronized with increasingly aggressive launch goals.

 

Part Two of this four-part series covers Part Manufacturing. Our PLM specialist will talk about part manufacturing challenges and leading industry practices for addressing them. High level solution overview for Process design, Process definition & Process Delivery. Video demo of capabilities around Part in Process Development, Development Process Plan, NC Programming and Direct Numerical Control.

 

Leverage Your NX Investment: What’s New in NX 11 for Automotive Suppliers?

DATE: On Demand
TIME: Anytime

 

SUMMARY: Automotive OEMs, like GM and FCA, will be moving to NX 11, which will unleash new functionality in CAD, CAM, and CAE to their suppliers. NX 11 delivers a robust set of new tools and significant enhancements to the existing functionality.

 

In NX 11, several tasks that previously required tedious manual rework are now automated. You can use facet geometry and solid/surface geometry in a single model with the new convergent modeling. Simcenter 3D replaces NX CAE and now powers all Siemens PLM Software simulation functionality, which is also enhanced and expanded in this release. NX 11 for Manufacturing improves productivity with tools like robotics machining and hybrid additive manufacturing, which enables you to produce completely new parts with better performance all while delivering significant cost savings.

 

Join Tata Technologies and our NX expert and you’ll learn how to design, test and manufacture your products quickly and with fewer errors than ever before.

 

Control Your Cost of Quality with NX CMM Inspection Programming

DATE: On Demand
TIME: Anytime

 

SUMMARY: Join Tata Technologies’ NX expert to discover the cost-cutting power of NX CMM Inspection Programming. This tool enables companies to generate complete machine inspection programs for Coordinate Measurement Machines (CMM) offline, to: reduce CMM programming time by 80% with automation, free up expensive CMM machine resources, enable fast responses to design changes, and program and analyze the results in an integrated system within NX.

 

This session is the second half of a two-part series where we discover how to control and minimize the cost of quality. We will discuss how to:

 

• Dramatically reduce programming time

• Ensure all part requirements are inspected per company standards

• Capture and share best practices

• Create programs offline without using a physical part or machine

• Facilitate fast and efficient design change propagation across entire process

• Simplify software deployment footprint (single system for CAD,CAM and CMM)

• Minimize training requirements

• See and evaluate “as-built” compared to “as-designed”

• Find possible causes of tolerance failure
