Finite element analysis

Computer Aided Design (CAD) Laboratory

Our Advanced Cad Lab is a dedicated computer lab for engineering analysis and computer aided drawing applications. It combines CAD and CAE software packages to solve complex material and mechanical problems. Deakin Staff and Students (and their visitors) can book the high end machines for up to 2 weeks for use on their analyses. Occasionally technical tutorials of the latest advanced in software of various codes are run - contact the computational modelling research leader for more details.

For very large computational problems, we also have allocated time on VPAC supercomputing facilities and have access to Computational Software Development expertise at VPAC.
