FINITE ELEMENT MODEL UPDATING
Classic product qualification requires prototypes, implying advanced design and costly testing. Digital simulation allows numerous tests on virtual prototypes.
Finite element modeling covers a wide variety of dynamic analyses: solid, cinematic and acoustic. Updating FEM models with experimental results makes it possible to tune them in order to perform digital testing using realistic excitations.
TRAINING PROGRAM PRESENTATION
Understand the relevance of simulation before testing
Define the types of measurements to perform for FEM updating
Identify the methods & tools to tune FEM
Differentiate methods & tools to improve FEM
Engineers & technicians in charge of FE model validation
R&D or NVH engineers
Working knowledge of structural dynamics
Working understanding of FE calculation
Program (based on case studies, alternating theory & application exercises)
The updating / tuning process
Measurements: theoretical basis, tools, set-up, acquisition of Frequency Response Functions (FRF), modal identification
Computation: assumptions, resolution, FE modeling, computation in the design process
FE model correlation & updating: tools & their limits, using a modal basis, using FRF results
Collaborative work with an industrial model
Evaluation in the form of a quiz
Sessions (14 hours)
1-2 June 2022
15-16 November 2022
Registration / cancellation up to 15 days before each session. Training material, breaks & lunches included. Based on real-life applications, alternating theory and application exercises.
This training program can be organized on demand, on-site worldwide for clients who wish to train groups of employees together, focusing on their specific field / job function. Its content can also be adapted for remote sessions.
