What is Linear and NonLinear Analysis?

Published on November 25th, 2020 | by özgün

We often see in the academic studies linear and nonlinear analysis. However, how well do you know about it? 1. Linear static analysis A linear static analysis is an analysis where a linear relation holds between... Read More



Ansys Workbench Fatigue Module

Published on May 28th, 2020 | by özgün

While many parts may work well initially, they often fail in service due to fatigue failure caused by repeated cyclic loading. Characterizing the capability of a material to survive the many cycles a component may experience... Read More


Parameter Optimisation in Ansys

Published on May 10th, 2020 | by özgün

Parameter optimisation is one of the biggest issues of engineers, particularly who use FE software. Sometimes, it needs to be investigated design parameters that are affecting to results as well as the mesh properties. However, it... Read More


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
