Lesson 1 – Introduction Tags: NX CAE, Design Simulation, FEA, basic, introduction In this introduction lesson for NX Design Simulation, we’ll have a general look at the application, and show you a best-practice workflow. By working like this, you can make sure that you take smarter design choices for your design, as well as being prepared for any changes that might come your way through associative geometry...

Back to course overview « Lesson 4 Mesh Refinement Tags: 3D mesh, mesh refinement, localize nodes In this final lesson in this course, we want to elaborate more about meshing. Often, you can get a bad mesh quality at certain areas, which can be solved by refining the mesh locally. This means that instead of refining the entire mesh, you can pick certain faces to refine. We will also look at how you can localize the node in the mesh which is exposed to maximum force. Download the partfile needed for this...

Back to course overview « Lesson 3 Lesson 5 » 3D mesh Tags: 3D mesh, constraints, pinned constraint, user defined constraints, bearing force, mesh quality In this lesson, we will explain 3D meshes more thoroughly. We want to introduce a couple of constraints: Pinned Constraint and User Defined Constraint, as well as a force: Bearing Force. We will also see how you can make sure that your results are accurate by doing an analysis of the mesh: Mesh Quality. Download the partfile needed for this...

Back to course overview « Lesson 2 Lesson 4 » 2D mesh Tags: 2D mesh, promote body, idealize geometry, midsurface by face pairs In lesson 3, we will focus on 2D-Mesh. We’ll see why we use tools such as promote body, and we’re going to use Synchronous Modeling tools, as well as Idealize Geometry, to simplify the model. In addition to this, we are going to create a mid surface by using Midsurface by Face Pairs....

Back to course overview Lesson 2 » Introduction Tags: Flow analysis, lift, drag In the introduction video for Finite Element Method calculation, we will take a quick run through the process of setting up a strength calculation of a simple bracket. The process is simple, and some steps will not be thoroughly explained. The purpose of this lesson is to give you a quick overview of the navigation process in the use of FEM calculations in NX.
