Being able to solve FEA problems is a skill, and this skill is trained by knowing the correct process to solve an FEA problem. Those steps are extremely important and if you learn how to develop correctly your thinking to assess each of these steps correctly, you will be able to become very quickly an […]
Advanced FEA Tips
The following articles below that I collected will help you to understand Advanced FEA Tips that you may not have knowledge of. I hope that they will help you to get a crystal clear understanding of those advanced topics that still elude us even when we already spent a lot of time involved doing FEA analysis.
Buckling is a dangerous phenomenon which can cause sudden failure of the structure, leading to potential economic or even life losses. It is therefore important to understand the buckling behaviors if the design involves slender structures bearing compressive load, that is commonly encountered in large steel structures of marine & offshore, mining and construction industries. […]
RBE2 and RBE3 are basically rigid elements that are use to connect mesh sets together. The name is similar, but there is a fundamental difference between them: RBE2 transmits the displacements and RBE3 transmits the Loads (MPC Forces) I made 2 videos that show: How to create RBE2 and RBE3 Elements The results in terms […]
That’s a question that I receive very frequently, and that’s my usual answer: The result you get are accurate according to your input parameters if you observe the convergence of the solution. BUT don’t forget your output results will always depend on your model and your input parameters. If the input is wrong, you cannot […]
This is a video which is short but effective… very few people actually know you can use interpolation elements to do that !
NonlinearStatic-Tutorial-Clip A lot of people asked me about Nonlinear Analysis which can be a quite tricky subject for those who are coming from the linear static world, so I decided to write a post about some of my past experience to give you 5 tips that will simplify your life in nonlinear FEA analysis. To […]
