AutoCAD Training Overview
This training guide will introduce you to the analysis products available within the Autodesk® Simulation Mechanical software. These capabilities include static stress with linear material models, heat transfer, and linear dynamics analyses.
The training guide will focus exclusively on models originating from CAD solid modeling programs. You will learn the various meshing options available for creating solid and plate elements. The available load and constraint options for each of the covered analysis types will also be presented. You will learn how to evaluate the results of the analyses and how to create presentations of the results, including images, animations and HTML reports. This guide is a prerequisite to the more advanced topic of Mechanic Event Simulation (MES) covered in the Part 2 training guide.
