Duration: 4 Days   |   Location: Portland, Oregon

This 4 day course will take the new user from ground floor through FEA best practices to advanced subjects dealing with surface modeling, detailed plate meshing and tet versus hex meshing. The key concepts of synchronous modeling and automatic mesh update along with advanced bolted connections and welded contact will also be covered.

The course will be fast paced and follow a workshop format with theory, practice and Q&A sessions.
