Creating a Random Geometry
Application ID: 49881
Say you would like to simulate a natural material or an arrangement of parts that have some known statistical distribution of dimensional variations. In such cases, you can create a random geometry based on these variations.
This model file is an example that demonstrates how to create a random array of spheres representing the holes in a wheel of (Swiss) cheese. It is a simple demonstration of creating random geometry features using model methods. For more details on this model, please see the blog post "How to Create a Randomized Geometry Using Model Methods".
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
