A Finite Element Model for the Diabetic Neuropathic Foot

Published on January 13th, 2020 | by özgün

Diabetic foot represents a complication of diabetes that can lead to foot ulcers and other serious conditions. 3D Finite Element (FE) analysis enables dynamic characterisation of different loads within the foot. Annamaria Guiotto from University of Padova,... Read More


Are Cybertruck’s Aerodynamics good enough?

Published on December 11th, 2019 | by özgün

On Saturday, Tesla CEO Elon Musk tweeted that “with extreme effort,” the company’s controversial new pickup truck could hit an extremely low drag coefficient — a quantifier often used to denote air resistance — that’d be... Read More


What is Explicit Dynamics in Ansys?

Published on July 9th, 2019 | by özgün

“Implicit” and “Explicit” refer to two types of time integration methods used to perform dynamic simulations. Explicit time integration is more accurate and efficient for simulations involving – Shock wave propagation – Large deformations and strains... Read More


Remote Points in Ansys Workbench

Published on May 17th, 2019 | by özgün

You use a Remote Point as a scoping mechanism for remote boundary conditions. Remote points are a way of abstracting a connection to a solid model, be it a vertex, edge, face, body, or node, to... Read More


How to Model Composite Structures

Published on February 27th, 2019 | by özgün

Composite structures have excellent strength to weight ratios and are used in many applications, including most of the airframe in modern aircraft as shown in Figure 1 (above). However, there are significant and obvious complicating features... Read More


Difference Between Static and Transient Analysis?

Published on January 16th, 2019 | by özgün

Most of the engineering problems are considered as dynamic although we mainly focused on solving static problems analytically in undergraduate educations. However, the term of dynamic might be confusing sometimes for those who are interested in... Read More


What is “Large Deflection” in Ansys ?

Published on September 19th, 2018 | by özgün

When performing structural finite element analysis (FEA), there are three types of nonlinearities that the analyst needs to consider including in their simulation. Material nonlinearities are needed to predict plastic strains in metallic parts, cracking or... Read More


How to break spaghetti into two pieces

Published on August 23rd, 2018 | by hakan

A study conducted at MIT showed how to break a spaghetti in two pieces. The question, why spaghetti does not break into two, also interested the famous scientist Richard Feynman and the explanation was made in... Read More


Contact Types and Behaviours in Ansys

Published on July 28th, 2018 | by özgün

Choosing the appropriate contact type depends on the type of problem you are trying to solve. If modeling the ability of bodies to separate or open slightly is important and/or obtaining the stresses very near a... Read More


Submodeling with Boundary Contact Surfaces

Published on May 22nd, 2018 | by özgün

Calculating localized peak stresses used in determining fatigue life can be very computationally expensive with large complex finite element models.  When including the fidelity of mesh needed to capture the local stress concentration, the global model... Read More
