Qualify solutions with Altair Optistruct™

This training introduces the principles of linear finite element analysis and allows you to learn how these principles are applied in OptiStruct. The problems of preparing a model for a linear analysis and interpretation of the results are discussed for static analyses and the eigenmode and buckling calculations.


Engineers with knowledge of finite elements and who are familiar with the HyperWorks environment.

Training objectives
