Happy New Year 2023 :) I can’t believe this blog has 10 years! Today, let’s talk about a few questions that I get all the time: What does linearity means? What is the difference with nonlinear simulation? When do you actually need nonlinear simulation? Video: Let’s talk first about the concept of linearity Linear static […]

## [Salome Meca Tutorial] Leaf Spring Nonlinear Material and Contact FEA Simulation – Part 2

In this Salome Meca Tutorial, we will go through one of the most complex simulation on this channel, a leaf spring simulation with 3 distinct types of nonlinearity: Nonlinear Material, Large displacements and Nonlinear contact ! I chose to divide this tutorial in 2 parts because it is a very complex simulation and there are […]

## [Salome Meca – Code Aster] Nonlinear Quasi-static Plate with a Hole Tutorial

In this tutorial for Salome Meca with Code Aster, I will talk about: What is nonlinear quasi static simulation Some of the theoretical aspects that you need to understand for nonlinear simulation How to change the plate with a hole model into a nonlinear simulation How to enter the strain hardening curve in code aster […]

## Nonlinear Hertz Contact Tutorial with Salome-Meca 2018

A new video tutorial for Salome Meca full of new stuffs is coming your way! Nonlinear Hertz Contact Tutorial I did in the past a post about the Hertz contact… 4 years ago wow… time flies ;-) Time to show you how to do that with a proper axisymmetric model in Salome-Meca 2018. This is […]

## How to define a nonlinear material in FEA?

In this article, I will tell you the very basics you need to understand to start using nonlinear material models in your FEA simulation. If you are just starting FEA, you may have learned that defining “Material Data” usually meant providing 2 input values into your FEA software: The Young’s Modulus The poisson’s ratio And […]
