‘Up and Running with Autodesk Inventor Simulation 2010: A Step-by-Step Guide to Engineering Design Solution’ from simulation consultant and Experience Manufacturing columnist, Wasim Younis, is published by Elsevier and features 352 pages of practical examples and advice covering all the core aspects and capabilities of dynamic simulation and stress analysis.
“Over my years of training and working with Inventor users I have, unfortunately, seen very little adoption of this tremendously powerful simulation technology and its integration within the design process, despite it having been around for several years,” commented Younis on the background to the launch of his book. “In my opinion, one of the key reasons is a lack of confidence when applying simulation technology and techniques within the users’ own product and development environments.
“With this in mind I have written this book using actual design problems which have greatly benefited from the use of simulation technology, but perhaps more importantly, I’ve also attempted to explain the process using a step by step approach, with explanation and tips, trying to answer the questions a typical designer and development engineer may want to ask whilst performing the task. The design problems are carefully chosen as they cover all core aspects and capabilities of dynamic simulation and stress analysis, and their solutions are universal, so users should be able to apply the knowledge quickly to their own design problems with more confidence.”
