Two-D, or not Two-D: that is the question: Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous CPU time from 3D analyses; or to take arms against a sea of data, and by opposing, gain valuable results in a short period of...

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.
When using a coefficient of thermal expansion in a finite element model, you must be careful when dealing with temperature dependant data. There are generally 2 ways of specifying coefficient of thermal expansion:...
Understanding how structural parts interact and transfer load through mechanically fastened joints has long been a critical aspect of design. Even with the development of integrally machined parts, additive...
Finite Element models continue to grow in size and analyzing a large number of components in an assembly is becoming easy.
As engineers, we're constantly faced with technical problems that require us to push the limits of what was previously thought to be possible. The continued development of simulation tools like FEA and CFD has played...
The very first Finite Element Method application was performed by my former professor, Raymond Clough at UC Berkeley...
Stress analysis engineers can now model complex nonlinear dynamic finite element analyses of very complex structures using distributed processing on a desktop computer. However, it is very difficult to isolate...
Unless you work for a company designing custom "one-off" products you often find yourself creating a finite element model with similar aspects to models you have worked on previously. In my own distant past I worked...
