Why this seminar?

Vibration Analysis using FEA has become a common engineering practice across all industry verticals. Often, these analyses have to be correlated with test results.Seminar will address some of the ‘issues’ that concern designers and FEA analysts.

Designer’s Issues:

  • How to design for appropriate strength and stiffness?
  • How do I avoid resonance hotspots in design?
  • How do I validate design?
  • How to optimize design?

FEA analyst’s Issues:

  • How can I verify the FEA models?
  • How confident on my FEA results?
  • How to get my models correct?

What Happens in the Seminar?

  • Lectures and interactions with expert speakers
  • Close interaction between peers from other industries
  • Hand calculations of vibration analysis
  • Quizzes
  • Case studies of vibration analysis and correlation; discussion on problems faced during correlation.

Who Should Attend the Seminar?

  • Design engineers who want to understand vibration analysis using FEA.
  • FEA analysts who want to deepen their knowledge.
  • Vibration testing engineers who want to understand how finite element analysis of vibration works.

Dynamic Finite Element analysis (FEA) is used at for design verification and design optimisation. Dynamic analysis ranging from routine mode shape and mode displacement calculations, impact and crash analysis, transient dynamics, vibration induced fatigue etc, are carried out routinely by FEA analysts. This designer has to ensure that the intended functional requirements are met. Towards this, designers will have to rely on the results of FEA by analysts. This leads to many questions which the analysts have to answer:

  • How can we create robust FEA model?
  • How best can we capture the physical reality in our FE model?
  • How do we validate our FE models using analytical, closed form solutions?
  • How to check and control the quality of our Finite element models?
  • How do we impose confidence and defend our dynamic FEA report?
  • …. And many more


Workshop is aimed to give practising FEA engineers

  • theoretical inputs
  • tips for best practices in doing dynamic finite element analysis
  • identify common mistakes and methods to avoid the same
  • methods to validate the dynamic FEA results using analytical methods
  • to provide a platform for interaction between users, experts.


  • Basics of Vibration, single and multi DoF systems, resonance, vibration isolation and damping
  • Hand Calculation of vibration problems and comparison with FEA
  • Basics of FEA dos and don’ts, quality control of FE models
  • Modal analysis, mode shapes, harmonic analysis
  • Transient dynamic analysis, time history problems sine, shock, bump, blast analysis
  • Impact, crash and drop analysis
  • PSD and FFT
  • Comparison of FEA with vibration measurements
  • Vibration induced fatigue
  • Conceptual FEA model building and development
