[Salome Video Tutorial] Automating Geometry Creation with Python

This week I am going into one of the most interesting aspects of using open-source FEA, the fact that you can automate fully geometry and mesh creation using Python! Yes, by automating, I mean that you can create a script and let it make all the hard work to create your geometry model from zero. […]

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 […]

[Salome-Meca Tutorial] How to perform Stress Linearization in Code_Aster

If you ever have tried to analyze pressure vessels, you know that there is ONE feature that you absolutely need to be able to use… Stress linearization! Why? The short answer is that you can’t extract the bending stresses and other kind of stresses you need to check your model against the ASME code section […]

[Salome Meca Tutorial] How to simulate a contact solid-plate

In a previous post a few days ago, I was showing t you how to simulate a glued contact between 2 solids. I realised that there were few nuances that I didn’t describe in that video when you needed to make a contact between a solid and a plate so I made another video to […]

[Code Aster Tutorial] How to run your simulation with Astk

If you are new to Salome-Meca, you probably never heard about Astk… Astk is the way to run the command file and link all other files together which was used before Aster Study. It still works! …And sometimes, it is even more convenient than Aster Study to use, so I decided to make this video […]

[Salome Meca Tutorial] How to define a glued contact between parts

I am back for a new video about Salome Meca and Code_aster… this time about glued contact! If you want to perform an FEA simulation or a mechanical system, it only seems natural to have several parts in your analysis interacting together… Even if for test cases, you can use a simple plate model, real […]

What is Damping and why is it useful?

What is Damping? I am starting with a big question today :) …and to answer this question, we have to understand a few things about dynamic analysis first Because only a part moving in some way experiences damping… Damping is basically an attenuation of this movement due to some kind of friction If you hadn셳 […]

[Salome Meca Tutorial] How to check stress and probe results

It’s great to know how to simulate a mechanical part… but if you can’t read the results you need, that’s also useless… That’s where post-processing comes into play. Salome-Meca uses a module called “Paravis” to display the results and it is not necessarily very straightforward to understand how it works… That’s why I made a […]
