Up and Running with Autodesk Inventor Simulation 2011
A step-by-step guide to engineering design solutions
- Wasim Younis, Autodesk Simulation consultant and Director of VDS Solutions, Burnley, UK
Up and Running with Autodesk Inventor Simulation 2011 provides a clear path to perfecting the skills of designers and engineers using simulation inside Autodesk Inventor. This book includes modal analysis, stress singularities, and H-P convergence, in addition to the new frame analysis functionality. The book is divided into three sections: dynamic solution, stress analysis, and frame analysis, with a total of nineteen chapters. The first chapter of each section offers an overview of the topic covered in that section. There is also an overview of the Inventor Simulation interface and its strengths, weaknesses, and workarounds. Furthermore, the book emphasizes the joint creation process and discusses in detail the unique and powerful parametric optimization function. This book will be a useful learning tool for designers and engineers, and a source for applying simulation for faster production of better products.
Primary audience: Design engineers and engineering managers in mechanical, manufacturing, product development and design fields needing to take projects to concept level, including basic strength analysis and validation; Engineering design consultants offering a full design package from concept through to digital prototyping, detailed design and manufacture information.
Secondary audience: Instructors and students on engineering courses using Inventor.
