Figure 1: Closeup, exploded view of our concrete slab mesh © Glew Engineering Consulting, 2016 We'll continue on now with our blog series on finite element analysis (FEA). After discussing how to best set up a computer-aided design (CAD) model for FEA simulation, in this blog I'll cover the next step: meshing the model and [...]
Figure 1: Reinforced concrete mesh © Glew Engineering Consulting Welcome back to our blog series on FEA. In the last blog entry, we introduced some of the fundamental concepts in finite element analysis (FEA). This entry in the blog series focuses on the initial steps in preparing a computer-aided design (CAD) model ready for use in an FEA program. Since FEA [...]
Figure 1: FEA mesh and shear stress results for a reinforced concrete slab © Glew Engineering Consulting, 2016 Finite Element Analysis Consulting (FEA) In this series of blogs on FEA, we will first cover some basic elements common to many FEA projects, and then in subsequent blogs in this series, illustrate those methods through examples. One of the [...]
