  • Democratization in FEA
    Most of the discussion on FEA democratization tends to focus on CAD-embedded FEA. The downside of making FEA software accessible by all is often stated as there may not be adequate understanding of the underlying principles of FEA.
  • Autodesk Nastran In-CAD
    Walk through the setup and analysis of a simple bracket to get an overview of Autodesk Nastran, a CAD-embedded finite element analysis software.
  • COMSOL Multiphysics Overview
    Get a look at the latest capabilities and functionalities.
  • SOLIDWORKS Simulation Overview, Part 2
    Walk through a static analysis study of an aircraft keel section in SOLIDWORKS.
  • SOLIDWORKS Simulation Overview, Part 1
    Walk through a static analysis study of an aircraft keel section in SOLIDWORKS.
  • An ESRD CAE Handbook Look
    DE looks into the ESRD CAE Handbook – a collection of pre-built FEA models to check strength, stiffness and other characteristics of typical fittings and components found in aerospace and other industries.
  • Optimization Overview: solidThinking Inspire
    solidThinking Inspire 2018 is a structural optimization program designed to provide a complete workflow from geometry creation and or manipulation, through FE analysis to topology optimization and geometry shape fitting of the resultant configuration.
  • Siemens FEMAP with NX NASTRAN Overview
    Part two of this overview of FEMAP with NX NASTRAN from Siemens focuses on meshing and FE analysis.
  • Engineering Hacks and Spreadsheets
    Almost all of the FEA work I do today is supported in some way by calculations or data manipulation within Excel spreadsheets.
  • FEA Demos and Benchmarks
    If a classical solution can be emulated using FEA, then it’s a good check of the software and our analysis skills.
  • CAD and FEA User Interface Evolution
    We are likely reaching a crossroads now. The CAD-embedded FEA products must extend their depth if they wish to be taken seriously by the analyst community.
  • Regarding FEA, Who Are You Calling Dumb?
    Tony Abbey is a self-proclaimed fan of analogies. When considering finite element analysis (FEA) elements, he asks readers to consider them as players on your football team who have a certain level of intelligence.
  • FEA Modeling for Change
    This article reviews some ways in which FEA modeling can anticipate design changes and keep ahead of the curve.
