How to Interpret FEA Results?

By | January 17th, 2019|Categories: • Linear Analysis, • Structural Steel, FEA: Basics, • Nonlinear Analysis, FEA: Intermediate, • Post Processing, FEA Topics:, Structural Design Topics:|

Interpreting analysis outcomes is not simple. Even if you already have proper values from your FEA analysis, still you need to decide how to interpret FEA results. Let's take a closer look at how to approach this task! How to interpret FEA results? In structural design, you have to perform several checks. Firstly, verify if yielding is [...]

What Are Different Boundary Conditions In FEA?

By | January 14th, 2019|Categories: FEA: Basics, FEA: Intermediate, • Boundary Conditions, FEA Design Tips, FEA Topics:|

It's relatively easy to perform an FEA analysis, but it's definitely difficult to run an analysis that produces reasonable outcomes. During my Ph.D. research, I've learned that boundary conditions are often the issue. Seemingly simple they can cause a lot of trouble for you - so let's take a look at them! What are the [...]

Design rules vs Physics

This came out in one of the discussions in FEA guild, and I figured I will expand on this idea. This will also be useful for me later (and if I convince you, it may be useful for you as well). Instead of having this discussion with every Customer, I can simply direct them here [...]

Great FEA report for the win!

By | August 19th, 2018|Categories: FEA: Intermediate|

I've recently posted a tip about writing good FEA report... and I must admit that what followed surprised me! This is the most discussed topic to date. Naturally, I figured I will expand some of my ideas into a longer post. Let's give it a try : ) FEA report: business or tech? I strongly [...]

Nonlinear geometry benchmark

During last week I've posted a tip in the FEA Guild about using Benchmarks. Some great pointers were in the comments, but one got my attention the most: While there is no chance that I will build such database myself, I'm pretty sure we have a chance of making one together! I will try to [...]
