AbstractParticipants will learn about the Computer-Aided Engineering fundamentals and methods that are necessary for successful design of modern technical products. The focus will be placed on the simulation-driven design in the context of product development process as well as on the fundamentals of the design optimization.
ObjectiveBasic Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE) knowledge and skills will be acquired to enable students to recognize both the advantages and the limitations of current CAE tools. Examples of how to build feature-based and parametric models for simulation-driven design automation will be given along with common pitfalls. The CAE environment will be the Siemens NX 8.5 which couples the simulation modeling (e.g. structural, thermal, flow, motion, and multiphysics) with design optimization and Feature-Based Design (FBD). After taking the course students should be able to independently create effective feature-based and parametric models to suit the requirements of simulation-driven design.
Content1. Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE) methods and tools in context of design process (2 afternoons):
* CAE in the context of the design process
* Simulation-driven design
* Introduction to design optimization
* Features, parameterization and synchronous modeling technology
* Basic design optimization examples
* Introduction to Finite-Element Method (FEM) with basic examples

2. Simulation-Driven Design with application to structural design (1 afternoon):
* Coupling simulation with structural design optimization and feature based-design
* Simulation driven design examples (single parts and assemblies)
