I wanted to remind everyone about this great book.9780123821027 In April of this year, Wasim Younis released his latest version of ‘Up and Running with Autodesk Inventor Simulation 2011’.

If you are involved in Inventor Simulation, then this book is definitely or you.  Even if you are not directly involved in simulation, the book is useful to any supporting Inventor technician. Moreover having the knowledge of simulation requirements will benefit anyone developing assemblies that will eventually end up in simulation.

Up and Running with Autodesk Inventor Simulation 2011 is dedicated to the requirements of Inventor users who need to quickly learn or refresh their skills and apply the dynamic simulation, stress analysis, frame analysis, and optimization capabilities of Inventor Simulation 2011. Providing clear guidance and all-important real-world tutorials, the step-by-step, heavily-illustrated approach of this book will help designers, engineers, and manufacturers of all skill levels become Simulation experts.

Key Features

  • Discover how to convert CAD models to working digital prototypes, enabling you to enhance designs and simulate real-world performance without creating physical prototypes
  • Learn all about the frame analysis environment-new to Autodesk Inventor Simulation 2011-and other key features of this powerful software, including modal analysis, assembly stress analysis, parametric optimization analysis, effective joint creation, and more
  • Manipulate and experiment with design solutions from the book using datasets provided on the book’s companion website and move seamlessly onto tackling your own design challenges with confidence
  • New edition features enhanced coverage of key areas, including stress singularities, h-p convergence, curved elements, mechanism redundancies, FEA and simulation theory, with hand calculations, and more

It was a lot of fun to give away a copy of the 2010 book away this spring. The publisher furnished me with a new 2011 copy to review, and I may pass it on this December at Autodesk University.
