How & Why with Adams Flex

How To and Why To use Flexible Members in Mechanical System Design

System dynamics is very important in the design of mechanisms – ignoring dynamic effects and flexibility in your system by simulating mechanisms using simple kinematics such as the tools in your CAD system, can lead to problems in behaviour downstream - as this short video illustrates.

Unboxing MSC One

The MSC One Method

With MSC Software's subscription based token system, you receive a pool of tokens. Your tokens are checked out from the pool and are used to access and run a full range of CAE solutions available under the MSC One licensing system from MSC Software. Each individual software item requires a certain number of tokens to run. After each use, your tokens are returned to the pool for other use. There are dozens of software items available under MSC One.

Predicting Flowrate with scFLOW

CFD demonstration

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.
