Targeting a Specific y+ Value for your Turbulent Flow CFD Simulation (Part 3)

This blog is a bit overdue considering that the last blog on this topic was published at the end of 2019 and we are almost a quarter of the way through this year. If you have forgotten what was discussed in Part 1 and Part 2, here is a quick recap of the main topics […]

How to reduce your MNF file size by up to 97%

Flex bodies in Adams are very powerful and if used correctly, could mean the difference between a right and wrong answer. One of the most popular ways to create a flex body in Adams is to create an MNF (Modal Neutral File) with your FEA (Finite Element Analysis) package and import that file into Adams. […]

How to setup menu buttons for custom scripts in MSC Apex
Preparing a large Creo (ProE) assembly for analysis in under 15min

This video shows how a large "trommel" (mineral processing drum) is quickly setup for analysis in only 15 minutes using MSC Apex. A process that typically took 10 hours to complete, from import to first results available, is now completed in less than an hour.

Fix Creo (ProE) CAD files with defects for FEA purposes

CAD files like this Creo (ProE) file often contains defects that leaves the geometry useless for FEA purposes. Such defects normally manifests as failed geometry edit or meshing operations and then the reason for the failed action is seldom known and near impossible to correct. In this 3min video I will show you how to […]

How to create a Parasolid from an STL file

What follows is a tried an tested method to create a Parasolid from an STL file using Mentat and MSC Apex. Summary of steps: 1) Import the STL into Mentat using the FEM option (Target Entities) 2) Export a BDF file 3) Import the BDF into MSC Apex 4) Using the "Geometry from Mesh" option, […]

Sharpen the saw - MSC Apex

Cleaning or simplifying geometry for analysis is an art (and if you don't think so, you've been doing it for too long!). There are few set rules and the tricks of the trade you normally learn by mistake or by looking over someone else's shoulder. With this blog (and possibly more), I do NOT imply […]
