Do you remember that few hundred years ago, people believed that the earth was squared? We all have wrong beliefs that limit or hinder or success! They can come from your family, your environment or even from your education… and they stop you to become better at what you do unconsciously. I often see people […]
This is a video which is short but effective… very few people actually know you can use interpolation elements to do that !
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
