SMT are pleased to announce the developments of the MASTA Online Training Workshops. With the continuing disruption to face-to-face events due to Covid-19, organisations like SMT are exceeding in ‘on-demand’ efforts to provide a customer first ethos. The MASTA Online Training Workshops replicate the face-to-face seminar environment as is near possible, providing attendees with a step by step training experience.

Open to evaluators, customers and those interested in basic design, modelling and analysis of transmission systems, the online workshops are a perfect opportunity to work on projects and gain the best practice and knowledge of using our flagship CAE Software, MASTA.

With a fully immersive classroom experience from the comfort of your own home or office. Sharing your screen and using your microphone, fully engage in training workshops consisting of classroom demonstrations, group breakout rooms and detailed tutorial videos. Interaction with SMT trainers and other participants is highly encouraged with access to two-way screen and audio sharing, global and private chat windows, live file downloads and relevant web links.

Following on from the initial Modelling, FE and Analysis in MASTA sessions, the next series of workshops are now open for registration for our global audiences. For convivence and maximum accessibility for our customers and evaluators around the world, the workshops are repeated in two time zones.

Robert Forrest, Customer Support Manager at SMT says “I’m proud of our team for fast-tracking the organisation and coordination of resources to move from face-to-face to online workshops so that we can continue to support our existing users and evaluators during this time. The response to the recent MASTA Modelling & Analysis sessions has been fantastic with users joining from more than 10 countries across 5 continents and feedback has been very positive. Staying true to our ‘Customer First’ ethos, we are pleased to be expanding our online training offering with additional subjects over the coming weeks and look forward to welcoming you to one of our virtual sessions.”

Details of our next upcoming workshops are as follows:

NVH Basics

21 May 2020 – BST 06:00 or BST 14:00 – 2 hours maximum duration 

  • Aimed at those inexperienced with NVH analysis, this course will discuss the basic concepts in preparation for the more detailed MASTA NVH training.
  • Topics covered will include; NVH basic theory, transmission error, harmonics, orders, NVH testing, etc
  • Format: Presentations from SMT with opportunity for questions

 

NVH Theory in MASTA

26 May 2020 – BST 06:00 or BST 14:00 – 3 hours maximum duration 

  • An overview of the NVH theory utilised by MASTA, covering;
  • Basic & Advanced LTCA
  • Transmission Error
  • Dynamic Mesh Forces
  • Test process & Test data explained
  • Format: Presentations from SMT with opportunity for questions

 

MASTA NVH Mode

28 May 2020 – BST 06:00 or BST 14:00 – 4 hours maximum duration 

  • Using MASTA’s NVH mode – Analysis set up, results options, other usage tips.
  • Modelling for NVH – best practices
    • This will consist of summary recaps of relevant sections of the modelling & FE workshops
  • Importing and analysing electric machine data
  • Format: Multiple classroom sessions followed by hands-on breakout sessions overseen by SMT

 

NVH Optimisation using MASTA_Part 1

 02 June 2020 – BST 06:00 or BST 14:00 – 3 hours duration 

“NVH Optimisation using MASTA” sessions are designed to implement the skills obtained during the previous NVH training sessions. These sessions will contain no live tutorials, however are designed to simulate a true Workshop. Participants are invited to perform a structured and simplified NVH analysis on a specially constructed model.

SMT trainers will be on hand to answer questions and guide NVH optimisation process during this participant driven hands-on learning opportunity.

Agenda:

  • Project overview – A review of provided test data and project guidance.
  • Modelling – Participants prepare a demonstration model for NVH analysis with guidance from SMT trainers when required.
  • Correlation – Participants work towards achieving results correlation between (simulated) test data and their MASTA model with guidance from SMT trainers when required.
  • Optimisation – Participants work towards improving the demo model’s NVH performance using a range of suggested optimisation routes. Guidance from SMT trainers when required.
