Geometric Parameter Optimization of a Bracket

This tutorial minimizes the mass of a bracket that is synchronized from Solid Edge® via the LiveLink™ interface. There are limits both for the lowest natural frequency, and for the maximum stress in a static load case. The size and position for a number of geometrical features is ... Read More

RCS of a Metallic Sphere Using the Boundary Element Method (Wave Optics) new

This model illustrates the process of evaluating the radar cross section (RCS) of a metallic sphere through the utilization of the boundary element method (BEM). By taking advantage of a vertical symmetry plane that is parallel to the polarization of an incident background field, the ... Read More

Homogenized Model of a Corrugated Sheet

This example presents a homogenized model of a corrugated sheet based on a unit cell approach. The numerically obtained equivalent stiffness matrices are compared with various analytical models. Two corrugation profiles, trapezoidal and round, are considered in this example. Read More

Uniaxial Loading of a Shape Memory Alloy Using the Souza–Auricchio Model

The model includes a compilation of benchmark examples included in the text book: Shape Memory Alloys: Modeling and Engineering Applications. D. Lagoudas Ed. Springer 2008. The model uses the Souza–Auricchio model and shows the thermomechanical properties of a NiTi alloy sample ... Read More

Electrolyte-Gated Organic Field-Effect Transistor

This model shows how to model an electrolyte-gated organic field-effect transistor based on a general drift-diffusion model. The model uses the Stabilized Convection-Diffusion Equation interface and the Electrostatics interface. The transistor characteristics are visualized. Formation of ... Read More

Hydrogen Boltzmann Analysis

This model solves the Boltzmann equation in the two-term approximation for a background of molecular and atomic hydrogen. Electron mobility and source terms are computed by suitable integration of the electron energy distribution function over electron impact cross sections. Read More

Hysteresis in Soil Using the Small-Strain Overlay Model

The small strain overlay material model captures the effect of high stiffness at low strain as well as the hysteresis under cyclic loading, which is a common effect for most soils. The formulation allows stiffness degradation with an increase in shear strain, and the full recovery of ... Read More

Solidly Mounted Resonator 2D with Uncertainty Quantification

Uncertainty Quantification is used to study the effect of manufacturing variation on the performance of 2D Solidly Mounted Resonator (2D SMR). This tutorial shows how resonant frequency is effected by thickness variations of the piezoelectric layer and the Bragg reflector layers. The ... Read More

User-Defined License Agreement in an Application

This example of a simulation application shows how to add a user-defined license agreement, which you can use to protect applications that you publish and distribute. Read More

Parameter Estimation with Covariance Analysis

When estimating the parameters of a multiphysics model, both experimental noise and modeling uncertainties will contribute to corresponding uncertainties in the final parameters estimated. In this verification example, we demonstrate the new Variance functionality in the Parameter ... Read More
