Understanding Basics of Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and its Application in Pressure Vessel Design

Course Objectives

To help the delegates to understand basic of FEA, parameters that affect FEA results and elements to be considered during review of FEA report, so that they can effectively apply the know how during day to day working with FEA.

Course Feature

Course is designed to help the delegates to understand the background of FEA, FEA methodology, Element selection & Use, where code permit use of FEA and assessment of FEA results for code compliance with example of Nozzle analysis with external load.

Who should attend ?
  • Equipment design Engineer / Manager
