Bibliography

The workshop script will be allocated at Ilias.

Content of teaching

Content in the summer semester:

  • introduction to the finite element analysis (FEA)
  • stess and modal analysis of finite element models using Abaqus/CAE as a preprocessor and Abaqus solver
  • introduction to topology and shape optimization
  • creation and calculation of various optimization models with the optimization package TOSCA and the Abaqus solver

Content in the winter semester:

  • introduction to the finite element analysis (FEA)
  • stress and modal analysis of finite element models using Abaqus/CAE as a preprocessor and Abaqus solver
  • introduction to multi-body simulation (MBS)
  • preparation and running of multi-body simulation models. Coupling of the MBS and FEA to calculate hyprid multi-body simulation problems.
Workload

regular attendance: 31.5 h

self-study: 58 h

independent work with different software tools (supported by tutors and faculty stuff)

discussing and presenting results in small groups

Aim

The students are able to ...

  • name the purposes and limits of numerical simulation and optimization of the virtual product development.
  • solve simple realistic tasks in the field of finite element analysis, multi-body-simulation and structure optimization with industrial common software (the content in winter and summer term is different).
  • evaluate and to question the results of a simulation.
  • identify and improve the mistakes of a simulation or optimization.
