Faster data analysis with greater understanding™

Training Seminars

Bodie Technology offers unique training seminars designed for Engineers, Scientists, and Researchers that work with:

  • Simulation tools like FEA, CFD, or others
  • Transient physical measurement data ranging from shock to nonlinear stress/strain
  • Nonlinear, noisy, and challenging transient data from experiments and/or simulations

Dr. Ted Diehl leads all seminars, offering his 30+ years of nonlinear structural mechanics experience applied to solving important industrial and research problems.

We offer Instructor-Led seminars in two formats:

  • Live web-based seminars
  • Customizable seminars delivered at a customer's site

Live Web-Based Seminars

  • Noisy Data Essentials
    • Are you struggling to analyze data from transient simulations and/or physical testing?
    • Using a structural mechanics framework, learn to confidently apply DSP tools such as spectrum analysis, filtering, and more to turn noisy data into useful information!
    • 12 hrs total, presented in three 4-hr sessions over 3 days.

  • Understanding Shock Response Spectra and PVSS Analysis
    • Learn about the fundamentals of Shock Response Spectra (SRS) and its various forms, including the PVSS (Pseudo Velocity Shock Spectra) and 4CP plotting.
    • Explore SRS & PVSS applications for both FEA simulation and physical testing.
    • 8 hrs total, presented in two 4-hr sessions over 2 days.

  • Advanced Energy Methods
    • Learn how to use energy quantities and their derivatives to quickly find dominant contributors to your structure's response.
    • Applications presented for both numerical simulations and physical testing including quasi-static to dynamic, and linear to non-linear.
    • 8 hrs total, presented in two 4-hr sessions over 2 days.

"Your DSP course taught techniques that helped me create a standardized approach for processing noisy Explicit Dynamics simulations. This has improved my analysis and helped me deliver more useful FEA results on recent projects - your course is the best I have taken in a long time."
