It’s been some time I am talking about what I think of automation and “push-a-button” solutions to my newsletter subscribers. I know that this is a potentially “sensitive” topic for some people in the FEA field…and many people working in the FEA software industry would prefer you not to know about what I am about […]
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.
Today, I decided to make a video to talk about a topic for which I received a lot of questions: Why is there so many fea analysis types? Why is there linear static? nonlinear analysis? dynamic analysis? It is something very confusing for beginners in FEA analysis. It was the same for me when […]
If you are a beginner in FE (Finite Element) Analysis, this post should put some light on some of the most essential aspects to understand about “linear static analysis” First of all a little of background about Finite Element Analysis for those who really start out… Finite Element analysis is a method that helps […]
A lot of designers have been using tetra element meshing kind of “by default”… When you see and hear everyone around you telling that automatic tetra meshing is the most convenient and easy way to get your model meshed, it’s tempting to just do that. But in fact, automatic tetra meshing has always been kind […]
Hey, It’s September already… time to start over to publish new posts about FEA :) As you know, FEA for All is a blog for everyone, from beginners to advanced FEA experts. Today, I decided to tackle a very basic topic (but essential to know): the shell element orientation! What is shell elements orientation? Shell […]
Have you realized how everyone is always talking about FEA as the ultimate weapon to solve any engineering problem? In one direction, that’s true, FEA is very powerful… but there are also some dangers, and no one is talking about them.
