Central Ohio SOLIDWORKS Simulation User Group


Richard Wand at MJ Engineering is putting together a new format for the Central Ohio SOLIDWORKS Simulation User Group (COSSUG) that begins this week. The new format includes two sessions, offered this Wednesday and next Wednesday at the MJ Engineering facility at Westerville, OH. Here is a brief description of what is to come on these two dates:

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2009

FEA 101: An Introduction to Finite Element Analysis – An introduction to the basics of running analyses, how to interpret results, how to ask educated questions of experienced FEA users, and other useful information.

Wednesday, April 29th, 2009

FEA 201: An Introduction to Finite Element Analysis – An introduction to SOLIDWORKS Simulation, when and how to use certain aspects of the software to gain the best results possible with the shortest amount time consumed. Feel free to bring examples on USB drives for us to play with.

The location is at the MJ Engineering & Consulting Inc. facility (653 McCorkle Blvd. Unit F, Westerville, OH 43082). A quick note on the agenda:

5:30 pm – 6:00 pm Gathering/Pizza

6:00 pm — 7:30 pm Presentation

7:30 pm – 8:00 pm Questions/Answers

I apologize that this probably came a little late for the first session. I will summarize the first session in an upcoming post (so as to play catchup). The next session (FEA 201) is going to be the first time we are opening the software. The tentative agenda includes a quick preview of SimulationXpress and Simulation, and a whole bunch of Q&A, apart from what is mentioned in the note above. If you are interested in attending, please RSVP Richard at 614-891-6111, or at rwand@mjengineering.com. You can also let us get you registered by sending an email to Mark Hilty (mhilty@3dvision.com), or at 513-745-2700 x220.

I will see you there!!
