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 applying boundary conditions. "Meshing" [...]
Figure 1: Giovanni Battista Venturi [i] Glew's News is doing a short series highlighting the lives and accomplishments of the Italian Masters of science, engineering, and mathematics. In the last blog, I wrote about Evangelista Torricelli, a mathematician and physicist from the 17th century. In this blog, I'm focusing on Giovanni Venturi (Figure 1), an accomplished [...]
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 programs are very sensitive [...]
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 services that Glew Engineering [...]
Mechanical engineering design for high-purity processes in semiconductor fabs: process pumps, abatement and exhaust lines.
The value of computational fluid dynamics simulation software, and how it can be useful to an engineering firm.
