Computer-aided modelling and analysis is the broad usage of computer software to aid in engineering analysis tasks. It includes geometrical modelling and finite element analysis (FEA).Software tools that have been developed to support these activities are considered Computer-aided engineering (CAE) tools. CAE tools are being used to analyze performance of components and assemblies. The term encompasses simulation, validation, and optimization of products and manufacturing tools. Computer-aided engineering is used in many fields such as automotive, aviation, space, and shipbuilding industries. CAE tools are very widely used in many industries. In fact, their use has enabled the automakers to reduce product development cost and time while improving the safety, comfort, and durability of the vehicles they produce.
This laboratory is equipped with Computer systems with latest CAE software ALGOR used in modelling and analysing the various mechanical components and to learn about simulation of the same. The ALGOR Software program has many finite element analysis capabilities, ranging from a simple, linear, static analysis to a complex, nonlinear, transient dynamic analysis and static and dynamic thermal analysis. The product provides a complete set of elements behaviour; material models and equation solvers for a wide range of engineering problems The analysis guide manuals in the ALGOR documentation set describe specific procedures for performing analyses for different engineering disciplines.
The students will be able to offer a comprehensive product FEA solution for structural -linear or nonlinear, dynamics analysis and thermal analysis using computer software.
