How to approach a snap-through problem

By |June 2nd, 2018|Categories: FEA: Intermediate|

Today's post is a video : ) In it, I will discuss various approaches to snap through problems with nonlinear FEA analysis. Understanding this was a stepping stone in my career. I really hope it will be just as useful for you! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GA9MyT7ax_k Takeaway: Let's sum up what I talked about: What is steering? When you [...]

It's time for the second part of the #FEAchecklist! Last time we were checking stuff before starting an analysis. Now, let's wonder what to check if you see analysis errors when your analysis fails to run. I can honestly say I'm kind of an expert here... I'm pretty certain I've made most of the possible [...]

Time to learn FEA

A few days ago Josh sent me an email with a question about choosing FEA software. And I realized I've never actually written about it. Time to fix it I guess : ) But since I'm experimenting with videos (let me know what you think!) I've made this one about it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gq0YFTQuVL8 There are different [...]
