Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is conducted to understand how a part or an assembly will behave under certain pre-defined conditions. FEA is used by engineers to reduce physical prototyping.
Traditionally Commercial software were used to conduct FEA and only commercial software were known academically and in the industry. Since last decade Open Source Software has picked up considerable interest and market share.

In this webinar, we are going to discuss how to use Open Source Software to perform Finite Element Analysis.

Key takeaways from this webinar:

  • Use of Open Source Software
  • Mesh Refinement using h-refinement and p-refinement
  • Assembly Finite Element Analysis

Presenter: Mr. Dharmit Thakore, EIT Lecturer.

Dharmit Thakore has over 21 years of industry experience in the field of Mechanical Engineering. His experience is in working for projects in Australia, New Zealand, USA, PNG, Vietnam and India. After completing his BEng at Birla Vishwakarma Mahavidhyalaya in India, he gained his first experience in the field of Design in Power Sector. After completing his MBA in Australia, Dharmit has since held many senior positions in various Tier 1 companies in Australia.
