Hi! I just finished a simple internal flow simulation with my pipe. And I would like to do a pipe stress analysis due to the flow, therefore I exported the flow simulation result into the FEA study.

Mesh Error I am trying to do a static analysis in an offshore jacket foundation. The problem is that when I am trying to mesh it the mesh of most of the parts fails.

Just started full time at a company and the main thing that we do is exterior aluminum canopies for buildings. Basically I look at architectural drawings and then design the canopy in solidworks according to their dimensions. Then we eventually send our designs to an engineer to recommend things like fasteners and other attachment details. I don't know what software they are using to get their load calculations.

Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong? I am doing a non-linear axis symetric 2d simplification of a pipe being pressed into the bottom of a hole. Global contacts are no penetration. The pipe has a 45 degree chamfer around the end and this chamfer is mating up with a matched 45 degree counter sink at the bottom of the hole.

I am looking at a steel dart falling onto a piece of glass that's bonded into a plastic housing by 4 spots of glue. I started off by modelling the glass, the glue dots and the dart, making the glue dots built in on the surfaces where they would contact the plastic mount in real life.

Hello, I created a simple pump and impeller. Then I assemble them to do flow simulation. For that, I created another component say'Boss-extrude3'to apply to rotating region and while creating this I unchecked merged option. Also, in component control, I disable this'Boss-extrude3'.Then I went to select rotating region but I am unable to select any part.

Beam Analysis I have a part attached which I want to carry out a simulation on, i've tried fixing it in a few different ways but the it wont run, i'm presuming its to do with how the frame is drawn up as usually works ok for simpler frames , if someone can take a look as I don't often use simulation, thanks

Hello and have a nice week!! Due to a postgraduate programm in which I am attending to I have a coursework over a simulation study.I decided to make a static analysis of a dumper truck frame.Since I am novice on simulation I came up to many problems during the procedure.After designing the frame(I am also not an expert in design) I want to make a static analysis of the frame due to the weight of the truck cabin and its trailer(I am allowed not to use no more components on the structure such as

Hello, I am new to CFD and I am trying to simulate the fluid flow for a fan in a blender. I have attached pictures of the models and the rotating region. I am not able go through the meshing for a finer mesh. For a coarser mesh (Global mesh level 3), its going through.

So I was going to include a few fans in a flow simulation and the warning written in the title appeared. I tried to troubleshoot by only simulating a free fan in an empty domain, which still gave me the same warning. Now I need some help with how to resolve this.

I want to run my CFD parametric study , i want to add more cores to decrease the simulation time, is it possible? Yes, you can install a remote solver onto other machines and use them to solve your Flow Projects. This is how you go about doing the setup (GoEngineer - Flow Simulation: Remote Solver).

I am curious how flow simulation calculates the values for average, delta, minimum, maximum, and criteria? Are the values computed over the entire solve process or over the convergence interval? It seems to me the values are somewhere in between the entire solution and the convergence interval. Is there anything in the help files that explains this?
