Nastran In-CAD: Elements & Meshing

10 a.m. PT - Thursday, April 26th

To obtain better simulation results, a systematic and powerful mesh is key. 

In Finite Element Analysis (FEA), meshing is the process of breaking down the CAD model into smaller pieces or elements that closely approximate the geometry and physics of the problem. As these elements are made smaller and smaller, the computed solution will approach the true solution. This process of mesh refinement is a key step in validating any finite element model and gaining confidence in the results.

In this AVA, we will discuss the different ways to control and refine the finite element mesh in Nastran In-CAD. We will also look at how the mesh can help validate our FEA results.

We are excited to announce...
