Overview: iKnowledge Solutions initially worked with GM to develop a course using automotive parts for the WAVE application. The result more... was a revelation - a course that supplements basic button-pushes and rote knowledge with actual experience. Case studies give the student real scenarios and problems to solve with their newly acquired knowledge. This kind of experience normally seeps in during months on the job, but IKS's focused and innovative training distills it into days. WAVE provides the ability to create, understand and manage inter-part geometric relationships between components and assemblies, simplifying the process of relating parts inside an assembly to one another. There are times, however, when this potentially powerful tool should be used with careful consideration or not at all. Our WAVE course gives you the knowledge to make these decisions.

Overview: Not everyone can have easy access to a full time stress analyst or wait weeks for stress results. Take matters into your own more...hands with our Structures class. We show you all the turns and pitfalls, so you don't make any rookie mistakes. Inaccurate stress analysis is often worse than no results at all. The process begins by using the Master Model concept to set up the model within the Structures application. You then create various scenarios with different loads and boundary conditions. We discuss different types of meshes, selection of the meshes (depending upon the type of model), and then how to apply the meshes to the model(s). So, take matters in your own hands, give us a call!
