Recursion and Recursively Defined Geometry Objects
Broadband antennas and metamaterials are 2 fields of engineering in which recursively defined geometry objects are a useful modeling capability. Writing methods makes this task easier.
How to Automatically Remove Small Details in Your Model Geometry
Have you ever wished for an automatic way to remove small details in your model geometry that are causing an unnecessarily fine mesh or a poor mesh quality? Enter the Remove Details operation.
Optimizing Lubricated Systems with Numerical Simulation
Experts at SIMTEC designed a lubricated mechanical contact using numerical modeling and built an application for optimizing the use of lubrication in rolling and sliding bearings.
Best Practices for Meshing Domains with Different Size Settings
Tip 1: Choose the order of your meshing sequence operations. Tip 2: Use a single operation to mesh multiple domains. Keep reading to learn how to ensure the high-quality meshing of model domains.
Predicting the Unpredictable: Simulating Earthquake Mechanics
In case of an earthquake, people regularly practice hiding under their desks. Another way to prepare? Using response spectrum analysis to determine the structural stability of a building subject to this type of seismic event.
