In Week 5, we'll define, solve, and review a static stress simulation using the Fusion 360 Simulation Workspace. Computer-aided engineering (CAE) removes some of the guess work previously associated with design. Advanced tools like buckling or modal frequency analysis can help shape the parameters for design updates before prototyping or production. Walk through Static Stress Simulation setup, solve, and review process.
