Yes, I know, the title looks incredibly unbelievable… how can you use the same methodology to improve any kind of system? Well… As incredible as it seems, it is perfectly true. The name of this methodology is called the “Trial and Error” Method. This is something than I learned maybe when I was 10 years […]

## How to simulate a PZT Disc in OnScale?

The most “basic” type of device capable of harnessing piezoelectricity is called a PZT Disc. It’s used in a lot of sensors, electronic filters,… etc I decided to make a video to teach you how to simulate one with OnScale. If you don’t have access to YouTube, click here to view the video. Why OnScale? […]

## How to calculate Natural frequencies and mode shapes of a PZT Disc in OnScale?

If you become familiar with OnScale, one of the things that you may wondering is how to calculate natural frequencies of your model… This is the kind of things that deserves to be explained a bit more in details! The real world is time domain. You might be used to doing modal analysis, but it’s […]

## Why would you ever put your FEA in the cloud? and how?

A lot of companies now are talking about the « cloud » but not everyone knows what it actually means… As you might be required at some time or another to run your FEA “into the cloud”… better understand what is means ;-) As usual, let’s break down what it means and make everything simple to understand […]

## How to measure voltage in OnScale Double Tonpilz Acoustic Simulation

A lot of people ask me about how to extract the voltage in OnScale, so I decided to make a quick video to show how to do that. So here’s the basic problem: Let’s suppose that you want to model two Tonpilz Transducers (or BLTs) in 3D in OnScale. You apply voltage to one of […]

## How to simulate the propagation of a 2D ultrasonic wave in a steel plate with OnScale

If you want to understand the physics of sound wave propagation, I have another article more detailed on it here How to simulate the propagation of a 2D ultrasonic wave in a steel plate with OnScale: How to create a simple geometry model in Onscale How to assign time-varying pressure loads and boundary conditions How […]
