  • Concepts of 2D and 3D drawing.
  • Enthusiastic for converting one’s imagination in real time 3D model.
  • Theoretical FEA and FEM knowledge will be added advantage.

Course Content

Introduction: In this introductory course the student will learn how to use RADIOSS to solve highly non-linear transient problems typical of impact. Users will be able to apply RADIOSS to evaluate product performance under loading that causes large displacements, large strains, contact and material non-linearity. Key theoretical aspects of an explicit solver are explained along with an emphasis on practical application including best practices.

Users will learn how to build a valid simulation in RADIOSS by properly choosing elements and properties, and by defining basic material laws, contact and loading.

  • Inertia Relief Analysis


  • RADIOSS provides one of the most comprehensive material and rupture libraries in the industry.
  • The material laws and rupture criteria span across definitions for concrete, foam, rubber, steel, composites, biomaterials, and more.
  • RADIOSS is tightly integrated with OptiStruct and HyperStudy. Design optimization and robustness studies can be performed easily to improve design performance.
  • RADIOSS support is very responsive in reacting to user input.
  • PBS Professional is a powerful workload management software. RADIOSS jobs can be efficiently managed and monitored on sever infrastructures to minimize job turn-around-time.

Additional Benefit: Hands on Experience and demo includes industry based real time problems.
