Failure Modes: Understand the 5 most common failure types

Failure-modes ThumbnailMany engineers I meet don’t know there are several failure modes… They think: 짬 That셲 pretty simple you apply a load, the load is too heavy, so your system fails and breaks┑졖 Ok. I acknowledge that this is obvious… systems can break under a heavy loading. In fact even a 3 years old would understand […]

Free Body Diagram: Why is it useful in FEA?

Free-body-diagram-ThumbnailIf you are tackling static* problems with FEA, there is a basic tool that will help you a lot: The Free Body Diagram (FBD). If you are trying to analyze static mechanisms, you probably heard this name before But do you know what it is and how it actually works? That셲 what this article is […]

Buckling in FEA: A simple explanation and demonstration

buckling thumbnailHundreds of engineers asked me about buckling and every time, the way that I explain it makes them understand almost immediately how it works. That’s what I’ll share with you today for the beginning of 2017 :) Buckling is very simple to understand with the simple following example. Imagine that you are pushing a parallelepipedic […]

Safety factor: How do I calculate that?

safety factorThis article talks explains the concept of safety factor and how it is calculated. It’s a fundamental notion that every mechanical engineer have to understand well. How do I know if the design of my part is 짬혻safe혻쨩 enough? That셲 a difficult question that many designers asked themselves. One of the potential answers involves the […]

What is frequency response analysis in FEA

what is frequency response analysisIn the last article, I described in depth Modal Analysis, Eigenvalues and all what that means and in this article, I혻will dive into what is frequency response analysis. The most important lesson about modal analysis – Modal analysis helps to determine the modes of vibrations and the frequencies at which those modes are triggered – […]

7 wrong beliefs about meshing that you may have

wrong mesh beliefDo you remember that few hundred years ago, people believed that the earth was squared? We all have wrong beliefs that limit or hinder or success! They can come from your family, your environment or even from your education… and they stop you to become better at what you do unconsciously. I often see people […]

How to map-mesh manually a plate with 2 holes

Plate with 2 holesIf you have been into FEA for some time, you know probably that there is this kind of “basic knowledge” that every analyst will tell you혻that you need to know… The paradox is that it is very practical knowledge and it is almost never taught in the FEA textbooks…(and when you ask those specialists to […]

3 simple steps to get a nice valve stem brick mesh

Brick Mesh generationA lot of designers have been using tetra element meshing kind of “by default”… When you see and hear everyone around you telling that automatic tetra meshing is the most convenient and easy way to get your model meshed, it’s tempting to just do that. But in fact, automatic tetra meshing has always been kind […]
