 Scope of Course    

 

 

  

This course offers the hands-on training on how to apply modern CAD and CAE software tools to engineering design, analysis and manufacturing. In the first section, students will learn through 7 hands-on projects how to model complex free-form 3D objects using commercial CAD tools. In the second section, students will learn through 7 hands-on projects how to simulate complex multi-physics phenomena using commercial CAE tools.

Level:   Introductory graduate course
Units:
   12
Format:
Every week, we will have a 2-hour lecture on Thu, and
              two 1-hour computer cluster sessions on Tue and Thu.
Prerequisite:
Basic knowledge about
             solid mechanics, fluid dynamics, and heat transfer


 Learning Objectives   

 

 

  

After taking this course, students should be able to perform the following tasks using modern CAD and CAE software tools:

 CAD
  - Describe the product development process 
 
- Express product design ideas using 2D digital sketches

  - Model a component with free-form surfaces
  - Model an assembly of components with kinematic linkages
  - Render and animate the appearance and functionality of a
    product

 CAE
   - Set up material properties, boundary conditions, meshes,
     and loading condition for engineering analyses
   - Perform linear structural analysis
   - Perform non-linear structural analysis
   - Perform computational fluid dynamics analysis
   - Perform multi-physics analyses
