Eric Stamper has over 10 years experience performing and managing a wide variety of engineering simulations in the aerospace, nuclear, defense, biomedical, consumer goods and micro-electronics industries. The majority of Eric's consulting work involves solving complex nonlinear structural problems with ANSYS and LS-DYNA. Eric has expertise in the areas of: high-speed impacts, quasi-static dynamics, nonlinear material behavior, contact, optimization and software development. Eric also provides ANSYS technical support and teaches ANSYS training courses.


Away from work, Eric can usually be found somewhere outdoors, making home improvements, traveling or on the ice playing in the Connecticut Hockey League.

I thought I’d have a little fun using simulation and see if I could reproduce the behavior of a few animations I recently saw online. This blog shows the different finite element analyses I ran and the accompanying videos that I found online. They compare quite well! This comparison also emphasizes that FEA can be very accurate and it can also capture all the real life physics shown in these animations.

A common approach to assess the structural integrity of a design constructed from a ductile metal is to compare the Von-Mises stress, σVM, to the yield stress of the material. It’s also common for the yield stress to be determined from a uniaxial test, and to assume that this limit can also be used to evaluate a triaxial stress state, as would typically be experienced in a complex geometry.
