New Methods to Update Finite Element Meshes Rapidly

This presentation discusses modern methods to update existing FEM models significantly faster than before. The methods discussed are applicable to thin structures that can be readily represented as shell FE meshes. The specialized meshing capabilities of MSC Apex will be highlighted and demonstrated on a sample part.

Fundamentals of Heat Pipes: Theory, Design Applications

With increased power requirements and reducing packaging size, thermal management is critical for to ensure optimum performance of key electronics in military, medical and other commercial applications. Heat Pipes, which are ‘super conductors’ of heat, are now being more frequently utilized to solve these challenging heat issues. Although heat pipes have been around for decades, many new applications for them continue to emerge.

Expediting the Process of TET Meshing Highly Complex Solid Geometry for FEA

Meshing solid geometry with tetrahedral elements is a quick way of creating finite element models, but is not without its challenges. In some cases, solid geometry cannot be successfully meshed by the most advanced tetrahedral mesher. In many other cases, a tetrahedral mesh is produced, but is composed of poorly distorted elements that are inadequate for finite element analysis.

Accelerating the Aircraft Icing Certification Process Using Simulation

Icing on aircraft surfaces, appendages, sensors and its impact on aircraft engines is a safety critical aspect of aircraft design that impacts the whole supply chain. Achieving regulatory certification is a complex and time consuming process involving simulation, icing tunnels and flight testing. Recent regulatory changes and industry focus around high altitude ice crystals and Supercooled Large Droplets have further challenged the design process and the time to market for new aircraft and technology.
