In this video, I’ll show you how to do a simple steady state thermal analysis of a plate with the FEA software Ansys. If you want to know more about heat transfer, check out this page here: http://feaforall.com/heat-transfer/

from basics to Advanced

I realized that I never wrote any article on this blog about heat transfer and thermal analysis… such a shame not to write about such a fascinating topic! If you never really did heat transfer analysis or if you never really thought about it, you are missing something huge! Here the trip that I propose […]

Many engineers I meet don’t know there are several failure modes… They think: « That’s pretty simple… you apply a load, the load is too heavy, so your system fails and breaks… » Ok. I acknowledge that this is obvious… systems can break under a heavy loading. In fact… even a 3 years old would understand […]

Hundreds of engineers asked me about buckling and every time, the way that I explain it makes them understand almost immediately how it works. That’s what I’ll share with you today for the beginning of 2017 :) Buckling is very simple to understand with the simple following example. Imagine that you are pushing a parallelepipedic […]

This article talks explains the concept of safety factor and how it is calculated. It’s a fundamental notion that every mechanical engineer have to understand well. How do I know if the design of my part is « safe » enough? That’s a difficult question that many designers asked themselves. One of the potential answers involves the […]
