FEMAP Training October 2018

Our next FEMAP training is Oct. 22-26, 2018

As our longtime customers know, our FEMAP training was created by us from the ground-up from our work here at Predictive Engineering. We've successfully completed more than 800 projects and our ability to teach FEA & FEMAP comes directly from those diverse projects.

Over the years we’ve provided direct and customized training for a diverse swath of engineering specialties, who challenge us with their unique questions, models & scenarios. We welcome that challenge and if you're ready to turbo-boost your skills, we look forward to having your team join our next training the week of Oct. 22-26, 2018 in ever-sunny Portland, Oregon.

Two New LS-DYNA Case Studies: 16g Sled Test, Blast Analysis

It's been a busy year for Predictive Engineering. We'll take our secret projects to the grave, but we're excited to share two recent analysis projects utilizing LS-DYNA. See step-by-step figures of the process along with video examples and PDF download.

16g Sled Test Analysis of Lavatory Wall with Attendant's Seat

In this LS-DYNA FEA consulting services work, the objective was to limit the design and schedule exposure of a new design. One can think of this as FEA insurance; that is, it is must less expensive and faster to virtually test than to destroy prototypes on a 16g sled test. Experimentally, a 50% percentile dummy or anthropomorphic test device (ATD) is strapped into the chair and then subjected to a 16g acceleration pulse with a half-sine pulse width of 0.18 second.  The test procedure is well defined under 14 CFR Part 25.562, Amendment 25-64 and JAR Part 25.562 with guidance given under SAE AS8049 Rev. A and for the ATD under 49 CFR 572. READ MORE
