I love to answer questions from the readers of my blog… especially when they are good. This one is about CAD formats, let’s tackle it ;-) This question here from Mrinal is a question that I asked myself a lot too… So… Why not writing an article to explain the whole stuff to CAE beginers? […]
Creating a good CAD model for FEA simulation
The articles in this section will help you to understand some of the "tricks" you may fall into if you are a novice in FEA simulation. The 3D CAD model that you have may not necessarily be appropriate to do CAE simulation ...and will probably need to be simplified. I hope that the following articles will help you to understand better this topic!
CAD model Your model is not meshed properly or the mesher cannot even complete the meshing? This kind of problem happens to everyone, even the most skilled in FEA. Nowadays, CAD models tend to have too many details and so it is difficult for an analyst to simplify those models enough to get a proper […]
This morning, I received some message from Nikhil asking me that: I am fresh mechanical graduate passed out in 2015, i also want to build my career in CAD/CAE domain. let me know which one is better and how to start in this field. what are future advantages of this field. Here is what I […]
How to Reduce CAD Design Cost using Simulation ? When designing a new product, a designer (You?) needs to make many decisions: what’s the shape of the product? How many holes are needed? What’s the size? How to make sure it’s strong enough? Needless to mention norms and standards to abide. Conventionally, these decisions are […]
I was myself doing a lot of CAD design before and I never thought that FEA Analysis was a big deal. This is what I thought: Take a CAD model, apply material, loads, boundary conditions, contacts, mesh it and then watch the results… it is like a black box. At least it is what I […]
Today’s subject: CAD model simplification for FEA analysis. Why do you need to simplify your model? How can I do that? The most simple workflow for FEA analysis is: 1. Import CAD model 2. Mesh the model 3. Assign boundary and loads 4. Perform analysis Unfortunately, all may not go as smoothly as we want… […]
