Join Tata Technologies, premier Autodesk Gold Partner, during a one day seminar on Tuesday, November 11 at the Inn at St. Johns in Plymouth, Mich. to gain expert insight on Finite Element Analysis (FEA).

FEA is a computerized method for predicting how a product reacts to real-world forces, vibration, heat, fluid flow, and other physical effects, to show whether a product will break, wear out, or work the way it was designed. FEA simulation enables engineers and designers to proactively innovate and design better products.

Led by international author and FEA speaker, Vince Adams, the seminar will cover all aspects of the technology and provide expert tips for mastering its various features including key concepts, boundary conditions, simplifying CAD, material properties and results interpretation.

Adams is a consultant, instructor, and advocate for FEA in product design for over 20 years. He has written three books on the subject, including "Building Better Products with Finite Element Analysis," and numerous articles for Desktop Engineering & Design News magazines. Prior to focusing on simulation, Adams was a design engineer and engineering manager accumulating numerous patents, many due to novel uses of and learning first-hand the importance of properly applied simulation for improved innovation. He currently leads the initiative for growth and development of mechanical simulation at Autodesk globally.
