Every engineer doing FEA Analysis probably knows that increasing the number of elements is supposed to improve the accuracy of the solution. This is true. But, this also create some problems, because if you are perfectionist (I know a lot of engineers are), you may be thinking something like: “If accuracy increases with the number […]
CAE Simulation for Beginners
Learning CAE isn't easy when you come from a CAD Design background, because it involves a very different engineering mindset!
The articles in this category will help you to understand the main concepts.
Every FEA Analyst has his own story to tell with the mesh topology when I didn’t know what it was, I use to think that it was not so important…but then I had this model which was perfect in appearance but the analysis didn’t want to run and I kept having this message telling me […]
Yesterday, my Friend Apoorv Sharma conducted a webinar about FEM Modeling and the topic was quite popular as over 200 engineers registered to attend. I suggested Apoorv to include a simple poll about 1D,2D and 3D element types to see what the engineers that joined the webinar were thinking. If you want to watch the […]
Today, I just have a stroke of Genius (up to you to decide if it is or not…) and I wanted to share it with you ! I will share with you a simple solution to overcome meshing problems I realized that many times when I performed the meshing process, the mesher stayed stuck at […]
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 […]
