How to improve your composite FEA process AND get manufacturing output as a side benefit
When working with laminated composites it is important to consider the effects that draping the pre-pregs has on the orientations and thickness that get used in finite element analysis.
Laminate Modeller is a plug-in tool for MSC Patran that does this fundamental job, but offers so much more.
A common use of Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) is in the design of fans and pumps. This short video demonstration shows how simple it is to set up a centrifugal fan model in scFLOW.
In this example we are looking to predict the flowrate throughput for a given fan speed, which is easily done by following steps in the wizard driven interface.
Next generation CFD tool
scFLOW from MSC Software is a state-of the art Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) package which uses a polyhedral mesh to solve some very complex problems with short run-times that have surprised long term users of other CFD packages.
