Department of Mechanical Engineering

This Computer-Aided Design and Finite Element Analysis class leverages 3D modeling techniques using Creo to design, engineer, and detail parts/assemblies. We cover structural analysis of parts/assemblies in detail, include buckling and representing preloaded fasteners. The course also explores thermal analysis, covering topics such as thermally induced stress and transient analyses. Finally, we utilize our CAD and FEA skills in a redesign loop that leverages the FEA results to inform design changes.
