FEA Made Simple has over 4 hours of instruction. The goal of FEA Made Simple is to show you how to simplify your work and turn SolidWorks Simulation into a tool that enhances your productivity. It doesn’t teach heavy mathematical concepts. It teaches you how to use FEA. You’ll learn simple methods of confirming the accuracy of study results, and by the end of the course you’ll be confident about our work. You do this by understanding how SolidWorks FEA works. You need to know how all the options work and what they do as well as which ones to use. You’ll learn the details about the data you input into your simulations, the details about operations applied to data, and you’ll learn how simulation settings affect the quality of your studies results. So this course teaches practical ways of using SolidWorks FEA Simulation.

You can use SolidWorks Premium, SolidWorks Simulation Professional, or SolidWorks Simulation Premium with this course.
