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 […]

## FEA basics – CAD model simplification for FEA analysis

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… […]

## Plate with a hole analysis : FEA Basics

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 […]

## The difference between CAD and CAE

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), […]

## Steady State VS Transient State FE Analysis

you are wondering what is the relation between a Showerhead and FEA Analysis ? if you look at the world around you and you understand the physics, you will always see some Mechanical or Thermal behavior everywhere… at least, I am (let me know if it is not normal…) I chose this simple example […]

## What is CAE: a short introduction

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 […]
