Combining 2D and 3D Simulation

We must often strike the right balance between the computational time and accuracy of our simulation. Simplification/removal of unimportant CAD features, locally refined mesh, and usage of equivalent elements are some proven methodologies to reduce the calculation time. If the … Read More

Thought Leader Thursday: How Can CAE Engineers Use Multiphysics in the Engineering Design Process?

According to Wikipedia, “Multiphysics is a computational discipline which treats simulations that involve multiple physical models or multiple simultaneous physical phenomena.  For example, combining chemical kinetics and fluid mechanics or combining finite elements with molecular dynamics. Multiphysics typically involves solving coupled systems of partial differential equations.” What does this imply for … Read More

The Banana Story

I was working late one night when my wife said “you can’t simulate this!” and cracked open a banana in her usual way. Challenge accepted. I found an IGES hand on a cad-share hub which I meshed and morphed to … Read More
