Engineering Advantage BlogTap into the thinking of some of the world’s leading simulation experts.Our consulting engineers share helpful tips and insights into how they’ve solved significant engineering challenges.
I’ve taught quite a few classes on explicit dynamics over my career and I often get the following question at the end of the training: “Do you have a checklist of steps and best practices we could use to make sure we...
In Part 1 of this post, I discussed why preload analyses are needed, as well as three different methods for performing a preload analysis...
There are many situations where you should preload parts to achieve a steady-state condition before running a transient dynamic analysis.
Explicit dynamics software codes such as LS-Dyna, AUTODYN, and ANSYS/Explicit are great for simulating high energy dynamic...
Have you ever painstakingly worked to develop an explicit dynamics model only to find out that it takes days to run? Wouldn’t you like to be able to speed up your runs without sacrificing solution accuracy? Mass...
You have a stubborn nonlinear statics model that won’t converge despite your best efforts. What do you do? You’ve tried adding substeps, modifying contact settings, and even changing solvers with no luck. An explicit solver might be the answer...
When working on an FEA consulting project, converting a finite element model from a static analysis to an...
Buckling may sometimes be thought of in terms of a gradual application of load until a structural collapse occurs. If that were the case, this scenario would represent the maximum amount of load that the structure...
As I discussed in one of my previous blogs, explicit dynamics analysis is the best tool for simulating high energy dynamic events that...
Have you needed to run a structural analysis of a design subject to high energy dynamic conditions?
