## 2D vs 3D Finite Element Analysis (with examples)

My relationship with 3D FEA is definitely love and hate. There are things I think are critical, and those that are completely unnecessary most of the time. Let's take a deeper look into this today! 3D FEA has an advantage: there are things that you simply cannot solve in 2D. But of course, this doesn't [...]

2D vs 3D Finite Element Analysis (with examples)

I think that many engineers, especially in the structural field, start FEA to calculate complex connections. There are few traps on such problems, and one of them is preloading bolts! This is why I've created a tutorial to do just that in Femap! I hope you will like it! There are several ways in which [...]

## What Are Different Boundary Conditions In FEA?

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 wonder what are the proper boundary conditions in [...]

## FEA Design Tips #003

It's high time to make another one of those : ) I recently got caught up with some urgent designs, and those required revisiting some stuff I did several years ago... but I think I will feature this in future advice! Let's go with the tips! Pssst - there is also a video with those [...]

## FEA Design Tips #002

Wow... it's the next week already O.o This means that it's another roundup post! I will always be a week behind on what we talk about in the Facebook group (even more reason to join it!). This is on purpose - I simply want to get all the insight and those awesome discussions that happen! This [...]

## 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 [...]

## FEA Design Tips #001

Hey People! I've recently started posting FEA Design Insights on my LinkedIn profile as well as in the Facebook group (where some awesome discussions happen). I figured I will make a roundup with the best (and most interesting) tips here... just so they will be there where you need them! Let's start with a roundup [...]
