Fusion 360 Simulation: Thermal Analysis

In this course, we learn about the distribution, transfer, and stress on parts caused by heat. Autodesk® Fusion 360™ allows us to analyze these thermal effects to help optimize any design. We'll discuss the various modes of heat transfer, such as convection, and how analyzing the distribution and stress caused by heat can help us make informed design decisions.

After completing this course, you will be able to:

  • Analyze the transfer of heat to and from a body.
  • See the effects of heat on the material of a body.

@James Douglas - We've added a new UI update video in the getting started section of this course that covers the latest UI changes.
Disappointing as I cannot find the pipe model!
It seems like this is out of date because there is no "load design from file" item in the drop down menu anymore.
