Getting Started with FEA & CFD Simulations

2 day training

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 one - FEA

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

Day two - CFD

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

Course Aim and Outline

Participants will learn how to effectively and efficiently examine, record and interpret the results of a collision and provide an opinion as to speed, direction of travel, vehicle and person movements and probable contributions of the human, vehicle and environment factors associated with the collision.

Day one: Introduction to Collision Reconstruction Inspection of a Scene Vehicle Condition and Inspection; Thrust Diagrams Lights and Glass Debris, Tyre Marks and Gouges Friction and Friction Measuring Devices Resultant Drag Factor – Effective Factor

Day two: Measurements and Diagrams, Geodimeter Total Survey Station Photographs Speed from Skid, Yaw, Flips and Vaults Trucks, Articulated Vehicles, Tacographs Trip Computers

Day three: Pedestrian Collision Reconstruction – Vehicle Speed Estimate Formulae Motor Cycle Reconstruction Dynamics, Time, Distance, Acceleration

Day four: Energy, Damage, Vehicle Stiffness Conservation of Momentum, Rear End, Head On, Intersection Collisions, Examination review

Day five: Involves case studies, written examination and learning assessments


Who should register

Anyone involved in motor vehicle collisions at the investigation, damage assessment, or litigation levels in Technical Crash Investigation and Collision Reconstruction.

Course prerequisites

It is assumed that the participants are familiar with basic math and the use of a scientific calculator, and have some interest or experience investigating, assessing or litigating motor vehicle collisions.

About the instructor

Dr Shane Richardson Dr Shane Richardson is the Principal Forensic Engineer, Managing Director and Owner of Delta-V Experts. He has been investigating vehicle collisions and industrial incidents since 1996 and holds a Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering, Master of Science in Military Vehicle Technology and a PhD relating to vehicle rollover.  His areas of expertise include Mechanical Engineering, Crash 5 Reconstruction, Incident Analysis, Vehicle Structural Engineering, Human Factors, Amusement Rides and Devices In-Service Inspection, Biomedical Engineering, Risk Engineering and Structural Engineering.

He has investigated thousands of crashes and is an Expert Witness in the Supreme, County, Magistrate and Coronial Courts.   In 2002 he formed Delta-V Experts and currently leads a team of six Engineers and four undergraduates who investigate predominantly vehicle collisions.
