Two-Pass Rolling Simulation - 2012

Hot rolling is a basic metal forming technique that is used to transform
preformed shapes into final products or forms that are suitable for further
processing.  The important aspects of this manufacturing operation are the
elongation and spread of the material during the rolling process.

Fully Coupled Fluid-Structure Interaction Analysis of Wind Turbine Rotor Blades-2012

A fully coupled fluid-structure interaction analysis of a wind turbine rotor is
presented. Abaqus/Standard and STAR-CCM+ are directly coupled through the
SIMULIA co-simulation engine. With this approach, a high fidelity modeling
strategy can be used to develop an accurate understanding of the blade dynamics.

Simulation of the Ballistic Perforation of Aluminum Plates with Abaqus/Explicit -2012

Simulation of the Ballistic Perforation of Aluminum Plates describes Abaqus/Explicit modeling of the ballistic impact of metal projectiles
on metal targets. It will demonstrate the utility of Abaqus/Explicit as a tool
for reducing the amount of experimental testing as well as assessing the
projectile residual velocities and time-resolved kinematics.

Pipeline Rupture in Abaqus/Standard with Ductile Failure Initiation-2012

Pipeline Rupture in Abaqus/Standard will be used to predict the burst pressure of a steel pipe-line
with a notch-type defect. A ductile damage initiation criterion is used, and
favorable comparison with available experimental data will be shown.

Coupled Electromagnetic and Fluid-Structure Interaction Analysis of a Solenoid Valve-2012

It is a methodology for building a coupled electromagnetic and fluid-structure
interaction analysis of a solenoid valve. A seamless integration between the
applicable analysis techniques allows for the simulation of the complex
multiphysics interactions.

Problem of Model Verification for a Curved Beam Model

Dear all,

I have a problem in model verification for a curved beam model. I have formulated an Euler-Bernoulli beam model similar to the following paper (refered as Pai's model), but employing Euler angle description.

MATLAB for thermal simulation

I'm currently studying FEA/CFD and BEM for thermal simulation of custom dies within custom package mounted on custom PCB with encapsulate material (epoxy). I getting familar with CFD concept which seem overkill from ANSYS IcePack (too expensive) but exploring BEM technology from E3D in france (via Vishay).

I have access to MATLAB from other company to try it out for thermal modelling (BEM).

Reinforced Concrete in ANSYS

I am conducting a senior design project in ANSYS.  I am modeling a folded reinforced concrete plate and have never used ansys before.  Does anyone have any tutorials that involve non-linear analysis?  I am trying to get a force vs. deflection curve and I am having troubles.


Career after the Ph.D.


I'm an Engineer and a Ph.D. student in Applied Maths, working in the field of Nonlinear Finite Elements for Elasticity. I often think about my future career since, by now, I have a strong experience with coding FE in C++/Matlab/Mathematica, but no clue whatsoever about commercial black-box softwares for FEA. I'm worried about this, since most of the job vacancies from the industry (I'm not interested in pursuing the Academic career) seem to require only experience with a specific software and application, and not to directly code FE.

Beam - Simply Supported - Quad8s

Example of 8-node shell elements representing a simply supported beam.  The beam can represented in two different orientations.  Both are equivalent if the plate thickness is the same as the length in this case.  The boundary conditions in the upper beam actually depend on how the beam is physically supported (whether the restraint is underneath the beam or in the middle or at the top).  In this example, I have placed the support in the middle.  Restraints have been added in the X and Y directions on one end and in the X direction on the other end.
