If you follow the posts on my blog or if you are experienced in FEA meshing, you know how the quality of the model is important in order to get better mesh and results. Recently, i just discovered a new method to simplify Shell models in midas NFX ! And all that in Video S’il […]
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.
There are two kinds of problem in the world of FEA: easy ones and difficult ones. Haha…I’m joking. My point is that the difficulty to solve a particular problem depends on lots of factors that beginners in FEA may not know. And it makes them difficult to estimate the difficulty of their problems or even […]
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… […]
The plate with a hole ! Who didn’t start to learn FEA by this simple example ? I remember when i modeled for the first time this plate on the first NASTRAN in DOS during my FEM course, what a memorable moment… i had to run the program like a hundred times before getting a […]
This is a very basic subject that I would like to talk about, but it is fundamental to understand well that there is a world between this two words. I can always remember that when I had my first Computer Assisted Design (CAD) course in my engineering college in France (the Ecole Centrale of Lille), […]
What is CAE? Maybe you have already heard those three letters « CAE » … and you are wondering what it means Here’s a quick video that explains the concept behind CAE: This is what I will explain right now What is CAE: a simple introduction to « Computer Assisted Engineering » let’s say you […]
