Simulation: Dynamic Simulation
This curriculum will not be monitored after June 30, 2021. You can continue to download these educational materials until that time. Looking for the latest curriculum we have to offer? Try Simulation Analysis for Mechanical Engineers.
The Dynamic Simulation environment is part of an integrated design and analysis system. It uses information generated by the Assembly environment and creates data that can be used by the Autodesk Simulation Mechanical finite element tools. The seamless data transfer between state-of-the-art design and analysis tools creates a highly productive design environment that makes the engineering design process more efficient.
Get creative with simulation in class
This project contains 8 modules that present the theory, numerical methods, and modeling techniques used to analyze systems of rigid bodies undergoing dynamic motion. A progression from kinematic to dynamic analysis is covered. This class of problem is frequently encountered during the design of mechanisms whose components undergo large displacements and rotations. The Dynamic Simulation Environment in Autodesk® Inventor® is used to demonstrate important concepts.
