The foregoing modules on E-learning and webinars coupled with E-resource book have provided a detailed exposure on science and technology pertaining to mechanical design and manufacture (choosing the manufacturing process and tolerance analysis). The foregoing modules also enable you to compute stress and vibration margin and carryout basic stress based lifing. A basic understanding of sensitivity analysis, optimization and material selection is gained with a few applications.
It is now time to apply the same via simulation. This includes material modelling (temperature driven), applying various types of boundary conditions and varying mechanical and thermal loads, interpreting, benchmarking and validating results, post processing, and conceiving scope for optimization
