Event Details


Non-Linear FEA for Failure Analysis and Drop Test Analysis



DS Center for Simulation Excellence, Fremont, CA

Saturday, October 19, 2013

9:00 AM – 4:00 PM PDT

In-Person: 3350 Scott Blvd. Bldg #44, Santa Clara, CA 95054

ASME or Engineering Society Member: $89 per person,

Non-Member: $179 per person

Student, Unemployed or Retired Member: $45 per person


Free Abaqus Student Version Software (Restrictions apply)*

Earn up to 5.5 Professional Development Hours**


All in-person attendees will receive a light lunch. Breaks with snacks and drinks will be part of the seminar experience.


This seminar will outline procedures on how to perform basic non-linear Finite Element Analyses (FEA), implicit modeling and analysis, explicit modeling and analysis and its application to solve real world problems. There will be specific examples taken from aerospace, automotive, energy, life sciences and hi-tech industries. Two real world problems will be demonstrated a) fracture analysis and b) drop test analysis.

Attendees will receive instructions to download free Abaqus student version software at the end of the seminar on 10/19 (restrictions apply)*. Attendees will not need either the software installed on their system or experience with Abaqus to attend the 10/19 seminar. Software can be downloaded after the seminar to practice the workshop problems demonstrated during the course.


  • FEA for the real world
  • Basics of Non-linear FEA
  • Basics and Modeling of Implicit Problems.
  • Basics and Modeling of Explicit Problems
  • Fracture/Failure Analysis
  • Drop Test Analysis


  • Free Abaqus Student Version Software (online download). Download instructions will be given on the day of the seminar.
  • Course notes in PDF format. Download instructions will be sent to registrants on Friday October 19, 2013, 9:00 PM PDT.
  • Up to 5.5 professional development hours may be earned.
  • You should receive three emails before the October 19, 2013 - 1) Pre-event instructions, 2) webinar login from gotowebinar, and 3) course notes
