TMP Vision®/SLIM Training
Course Outline

Day One - TMP Vision®

On the first day of training, the student will be introduced to the capabilities of TMP Vision®. The emphasis will be on using the software to efficiently visualize FEA data and analysis results.

Examples are presented that demonstrate the features of TMP Vision®.

These examples include the steps required to perform common analysis tasks such as:

  • Gaining familiarity with an FEA model
  • Generating documentation for reports
  • Visualizing FEA survey results
Supported File Formats
  • Input file formats- neutral, NASTRAN and ABAQUS
  • Result file formats

FEA Manipulation and Visualization

  • Viewpoint control
  • Control of element display and labels
  • Supported display modes (wire frame, shaded, etc.)
  • Generation of hardcopy files
  • Analysis tools, including 2-D slices through solid elements
Visualization of FEA Output General Quantities
  • Nodal displacements, applied loads and SPC forces
  • Element stress, strain and force
  • Freebodies
Visualization of Transient Analysis Results

Creation of Scripts to Simplify Repetitive Tasks
