The bulk of the problems solved by engineers on a daily basis require the use of linear analysis. One definition of a linear analysis is that a plot of response parameters versus input parameters is a straight line. In this project a linear analysis is one that involves linear materials.
This project contains 9 modules that present the theory, numerical methods, and modeling techniques used to analyze mechanical systems made from linear elastic materials. The modules address static and dynamic problems, and the identification of failure modes associated with yielding, elastic-buckling, and fatigue. Autodesk® Simulation Multiphysics software is used to demonstrate how to setup and perform various types of analyses.
