This broad engineering discipline applies the principles of engineering, physics, and materials science for the design, analysis, manufacturing, and maintenance of mechanical systems. It is the branch of engineering that involves the design, production, and operation of machinery. Mechanical engineers have a solid undertanding of mechanics, kinematics, thermodynamics, materials science, electricity and structural analysis.
It's on the design and structural analysis part of a project when an easy-to-use software
come very handy in ensuring structural integrity. Helping you perform design, stress, vibration and fatigue analysis of structures in a quick and affordable way. Mechanical Engineers often rely on CAD and Simulation to analyze these structures; however there are far quicker techniques for certain type of structures. Structural Analysis software would let you analyze a frame or member-based structure in a matter of minutes; not hours!
