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.

China News - LS-DYNA Implicit Class

LS-DYNA is historically known as the world's best explicit analysis code or the leader in the finite element analysis of nonlinear transient events. During the last ten years, LSTC (the manufacturer of LS-DYNA) has heavily invested in the development of its implicit anlaysis capabilities. Today, LS-DYNA can seamlessly handle complex, nonlinear analyses from static (implicit) to transient (explicit). Predictive Engineering has developed training course materials that covers both the implicit and explicit sides of the code. It was with pleasure that we taught a course in Shanghai, China to 27 students from industry and academia. This three day LS-DYNA training course was focused on LS-DYNA's implicit analysis capabilities from linear, elastic static stress analysis to static nonlinear analysis to fully, transient nonlinear analysis. The course finished with a half-day training on the linear dynamics capabilites of LS-DYNA.

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
