Sharpen the Saw - Meshing - Part 1

31 July 2020 from12:30 to 13:00 | Presenter: Gerrit Visser

Does FEM stand for Finite Element Model, -Mesh or -Mess? Off course it stands for Model, but very often it is indeed a Mess, which should have been a Mesh.

In this "Sharpen the Saw" series, Gerrit Visser, will discuss the relationship between what you want to know and which element types you will need to get the right answer.

“All models are wrong, but some are useful.” George E.P. Box, 1976

Whether you are a seasoned FE analyst or beginner, this series is for you, regardless of which software you use or plan to use next.

Discussion Topics

1) Ask the right questions first (before meshing!)

  • What do you want to know?
  • What results are you interested in, and where?
  • How quickly are the results required?
  • How accurate do the results need to be?
  • What possible follow up work could stem from this?

2) Suitable elements

  • Types & limitations
  • Quality

With 20 years of experience supporting FE analysts across the globe, you may say that Gerrit has seen it all. Gerrit specialises in implicit and explicit, linear, non-linear, optimization, dynamics, fatigue and acoustic applications. His favourite FE solvers are Marc and MSC Nastran. He is also one of two people in the world known for not needing a shortcut on their desktop to the MSC Nastran Quick Reference Guide.


What our customers say:

“From CAD embedded FEA to full blown non-linear Hydrocodes we all need and use meshes and hopefully understand that meshing affects your results. I strongly recommend you eat your lunch while attending this short Webinar, you will always learn something new with Gerrit even if you think you know it all you will enjoy this and it is most relevant for us to rejuvenate of M&S capability. So please register and schedule this appointment.” – Dr. David Reinecke, Principal Engineer Protection and Mobility, Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR).
