RAND Worldwide®, a global leader in providing technology solutions to organizations with engineering design and information technology requirements, announced that Matt Jaworski, from its IMAGINiT Technologies division, will present at: Autodesk's Digital Prototyping Simulation Tour 2009:
- Toronto, Canada October 8, 2009
- Detroit, MI October 13, 2009
- Pittsburgh, PA October 20, 2009
The presentation will also be delivered in Rocky Hill, CT on October 15, 2009; in Raleigh, NC on October 22, 2009; and in Houston, TX on October 27, 2009 by John Twerdok, Autodesk's Sr. Manager of Strategic Alliances.
The presentation, titled Material Characterization for Finite Element Analysis, is scheduled from 10:30 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. on all days. Finite element analysis (FEA) continues to grow in popularity for its ability to offer quick examination of "what if" design scenarios that reduce costs and speed development of new products. This session will provide the attendees with great practical information to consider when using and selecting material property data for FEA software packages. Accurate simulation of what happens to a product in a "real world" environment relies on appropriate material data from a variety of testing methods. Not all material data is created equal or even applicable for particular applications. Some guidelines highlighting specific examples will be presented showing how improper selection and use of material properties impact the accuracy of analysis results.
