NX 8 Design Simulation

NX 8 Design Simulation is an FEA environment for engineers that do not need the full Advanced Simulation environment. Design Simulation simplifies the FEA experience into a single toolbar, and gives the user enough functionality to perform Structural, Thermal, and Vibration analysis. Only Structural loading is talked about in this course. This course covers the FEA process from start to finish, from creating the files, simplifying the geometry, applying a mesh, loads, constraints, to solving and post-processing (analyis of results). Adapativity and Optimization are also discussed in this course.


Intended Audience:
Engineers / Designers who need to perform their own analysis. The limitations of Design Simulation do not make it appropriate for most CAE analysts.

Course Duration:
18 hrs.
