In this guest lecture Greg discusses why he chose to develop Motovated Design & Analysis. While we’ve snipped out the back story of growing up in Alaska and working as a snowmobile, motorcycle and automotive mechanic before attending University and working for Hercules Aerospace and Boeing, we do explain that mechanical engineering is much more efficient with a little bit of analysis. And that in mechanical designs, a little bit of analysis goes a long way! Pareto Principle on steroids! 10% of the analysis done for Boeing or Hercules gets our clients 90% of the value we supplied to them. We discuss being a leading provider of computational solid mechanics, including MathCAD, FEA and CFD, as they are applied to actual real world machine design. We highlight that phenomenal engineering is our passion, and helping inventors and manufactures realize their dreams is why we exist as a firm. Enjoy!
Students of the Computational Mechanics course (ENME302) at Canterbury University received a Guest Lecture from Greg Morehouse. The topic was on Real World Boundary Conditions (BCs, Restraints, or Fixtures) in Finite Element Analysis (FEA). Boundary Conditions are one of the most difficult and misused features in FEA. The students appreciated the practical application that Greg brought to their theoretical Computational Mechanics studies.

Greg Morehouse had the privilege of delivering a guest lecture at Ara Instutute of Canterbury (formerly CPIT). Students of Graeme Harris' design course MG6136 appreciated the guest lecture, some of which was shared from the heart. Greg shared some great insights into what it's like to own and operate an engineering business, as well as some specific case studies of past projects. Watch our recorded videos as following:
