    UPDATE With the rapidly evolving social-distancing requirements, we have unfortunately  made the decision to postpone this course. This precaution has been taken to ensure the health and well-being of you, our staff and the wider community; we trust you understand. If you have already enrolled in this course, we will be in touch shortly.


    Are you about to embark on an engineering career, or perhaps you need to up skill with some of the latest and best software; if so, then this training is for you.

    An introductory course intended for engineers who are new to, or have an intermediate level of knowledge of simulation. Attendees will gain an understanding of the basics and fundamentals of Finite Element Analysis and Computational Fluid Dynamics, and learn how to prepare CAD geometry to be ready for simulation & meshing, define loads & boundary conditions, apply correct physics and how to interpret & validate your results using best practices.

    A series of lectures, demonstrations and brief hands-on workshops will offer the opportunity to apply these simulation techniques to a range of applications involving linear and non-linear structural mechanics and fluid dynamics including turbulence and conjugate heat transfer, (along with an overview of other more advanced physics) and examples of new simulation capabilities such as generative design, composites modelling and additive manufacturing.

    A technical education and background is recommended but an engineering degree is not a prerequisite.

    Day 1 FEA

    •   Geometry prep for FEA
    •   Linear Analysis
    •   Thermal Analysis
    •   Non-linear Analysis

    Day 2 CFD

    • Geometry prep for CFD
    • Fluent Meshing
    • Turbulent Flow Modelling
    • Heat Transfer Modelling

    You may not need to be a Simulation Expert but all engineers need to understand simulations, what it is, how it can help you and more importantly how to use it. So why not make yourself more employable and valuable to your employer by learning something new.

    Annual General Meeting and Networking Dinner

    6pm, 21 May 2020


    The 73rd  Annual General Meeting of the Society of Automotive Engineers – Australasia, to be held on Thursday 21 May 2020 followed by an Industry Networking Dinner....all welcome!

    It's been a busy year, as SAE-A embarks on it's journey evolve within a rapidly changing industry, and with a reinvigorated board. We encourage you to attend the AGM for discussion on the outcomes of the 2019, 2020 activity to date, as well as the year ahead and beyond. Members and non-members welcome.

    In order to assist with our planning and ensure a quorum for the meeting, RSVP’s from SAE-A members to the Annual General Meeting would be appreciated by 10 May by registering HERE.

    Please note that un-financial or non-members of SAE-A will not eligible to vote at the AGM.

    These formalities will be followed by an evening of networking and lovely three-course dinner with drinks included for members and non-members.


    INDUSTRY NETWORKING 

    We expect the room will be filled with key industry people with an interest in all sectors of the mobility industry which will provide you with a great opportunity to network with other like-minded professionals.

    Introducing our guest speakers on the night...  TBC

    We encourage you to attend and show your support for the Society whilst we continue to work hard on future services for our members and our contribution to the mobility industry.

    We are looking forward to welcoming you on the night.
