MODSIM Episode Three – Materials and Non-Linearities
In episode 3, we’ll continue our MODSIM journey as we will explore non-linear analysis….
- An example of performing a basic finite element analysis (FEA) early in the design process of a retaining clip, to validate hand calculations and inform design decisions.
- The Importance of understanding what material model to use and what properties are required for a basic stress analysis of a polymer part.
- Understanding the different types of non-linearity and checking to see whether a linear solver is appropriate or whether a non-linear solver is required.
- Reviewing and interpreting the results of a simulation to understand how to ensure the geometry is suitable prior to the detailed design phase
Watch this latest episode to also learn hints and tips from our simulation experts when defining your simulation strategy and thoughts on how to build best-practice in from the start, so you have confidence in the process and results at every stage.
