Cyprien here, In today’s video we’ll talk about modal analysis and FEA Simulation! That’s a topic which is pretty basic in FEA. If you’re doing Finite Element Analysis, you have to know what is Modal Simulation. And still, I always get a lot of question about what is Modal Simulation, how do you use it […]

## How to get started with transient FEA simulation?

Let’s talk today about an interesting topic, Transient analysis! Most people start FEA simulation with linear static analysis, because it is the most simple type of analysis available, but the “static” hypothesis is not always valid and in some cases, there is no choice but to go for a transient study! If you have not […]

## Understanding Dynamics and the effect of Mass

I have been in France for few weeks now… and I had to take the French TGV train very often… That’s when I started to have some weird thoughts and remembered a problem I thought about a lot when I was younger… I decided to write about it now that I have a bit more […]

## [Salome-Meca Tutorial] How to perform a modal analysis?

In this video tutorial for Salome-Meca 2017, I will show you how to do a modal analysis of a simple plate with Aster-Study! Here’s what you will learn: How to model the plate and prepare the mesh How to use the ASSEMBLAGE function to generate the mass and rigid matrix. How to use the […]

## What is Damping and why is it useful?

What is Damping? I am starting with a big question today :) …and to answer this question, we have to understand a few things about dynamic analysis first… Because only a part moving in some way experiences damping… Damping is basically an attenuation of this movement due to some kind of friction If you hadn’t […]

## Do you understand the dynamic analysis simulation process?

In my previous article, I asked to my newsletter subscribers 2 questions to see who knew how to perform a dynamic analysis of the following marine refrigeration machine: ￼The questions were: Question 1: What steps would you take to identify the main vibration characteristics of the marine refrigeration machine in the previous image? Question 2: […]
