Simulating the flow inside a manifold with midas NFX CFD 
This week I started again to create tutorials…And the first one coming is the full modelling and simulation of a manifold in NFX CFD. I hope you will like it! This time, it is a midas NFX Tutorial, but I won’t stop here, many more are coming! I decided to start from zero in this […]

Why is there different types of fea analysis? 
Today, I decided to make a video to talk about a topic for which I received a lot of questions: Why is there so many fea analysis types? Why is there linear static? nonlinear analysis? dynamic analysis? It is something very confusing for beginners in FEA analysis. It was the same for me when […]

What is linear static analysis in FEA simulation? 
If you are a beginner in FE (Finite Element) Analysis, this post should put some light on some of the most essential aspects to understand about “linear static analysis” First of all a little of background about Finite Element Analysis for those who really start out… Finite Element analysis is a method that helps […]

Do you understand the physics of heat transfer? 
I realized that I never wrote any article on this blog about heat transfer and thermal analysis… such a shame not to write about such a fascinating topic! If you never really did heat transfer analysis or if you never really thought about it, you are missing something huge! Here the trip that I propose […]

Failure Modes: Understand the 5 most common failure types 
Many engineers I meet don’t know there are several failure modes… They think: « That’s pretty simple… you apply a load, the load is too heavy, so your system fails and breaks… » 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? 
If 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? That’s what this article is […]

Buckling in FEA: A simple explanation and demonstration 
Hundreds 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? 
This 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 « safe » enough? That’s a difficult question that many designers asked themselves. One of the potential answers involves the […]

What is frequency response analysis in FEA 
In the last article, I described in depth Modal Analysis, Eigenvalues and all what that means and in this article, I will 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 – […]

What is FEA modal analysis?  Learn the basics about it 
Modal analysis is, along with linear static analysis, one of the 2 most common types of FE analysis. If you don’t know about those, you’ll have to review your fea basics. That’s what we’ll do here! In this short article, I’ll talk about: What is modal analysis Why it is important to know about it […]
