Workshop on Solidworks and ANSYS
21st September, 2017
A workshop on Solidworks and Ansys was organised by Department of Mechanical Engineering in Association with DGI SAEINDIA Collegiate Club, on 21st September 2017. The workshop was conducted by ScheDio CAD Solutions Private Limited.
The objective of the workshop was to make students familiar with:-
- The technological advancement in Modelling software and applications of the software in manufacturing industries.
- Developing skills in design and analysis of machine elements and mechanisms in Solidworks and ANSYS.
55 students of B. Tech, Mechanical Engineering V & VII semester attended the workshop which was coordinated by Mr. Ajay Chaubey, Assistant Professor, Department of Mechanical Engineering. Mr. T.K. Gupta, Senior Design Engineer and Mr. Shashi Kant, Regional Trainer, ScheDio CAD Centre were the resource person for the workshop.
Prof. D.V.Bhise, HOD, Mechanical Engineering Department welcomed the guests and enumerated the importance of drawing and design in Mechanical Engineering and asked students to take benefit of the workshop.
Mr. T.K. Gupta started the session with an introduction on how to develop the skills for better designing of machine elements in Solidworks. He designed and demonstrated 2D and 3D component drawing in Solidworks. Mr. Gupta also discussed about features and applications of NX UG software in industries. With the help of NX UG, modification in any 3D Model can be done easily, as compared to other software like Creo, Pro-E etc.
During the next half of the session Mr. Shashi Kant described Finite Element Method- Analysis tool used in Ansys software. He also discussed Fundamentals of Ansys, Failure Analysis Theory and FEM concepts.
Mr. Kant said that the Finite Element Method (FEM) is a numerical technique for finding approximate solutions to boundary value problems for partial differential equations. The Finite-Volume Method (FVM) is a method for representing and evaluating partial differential equations in the form of algebraic equations.
The outcome of the training workshop was the familiarisation of basic design concepts along with their applications in manufacturing industries to the students.
The Workshop came to an end with the Vote of Thanks proposed by Prof. D V Bhise, HOD, Mechanical Engineering Department.
