What Is Shock Response Spectrum (SRS) Analysis In FEA – And How Is It Calculated?

Introduction Shock Response Spectrum (SRS) analysis is used to calculate the peak response of a physical system subjected to shock loads in the frequency domain. This is a very useful, inexpensive tool that provides qualitative comparisons between preliminary designs. It is often essential in the fields of engineering, material science, and electronics where rapid transient

CATIA Or SOLIDWORKS – What’s The Difference?

Tell me if you have heard this one before: “Which is better, CATIA or SolidWorks?” This question seems to come up often, at least often enough, that I decided to explore further. In the 3D CAD software space, Dassault Systèmes offers two of the top programs in CATIA and SOLIDWORKS. Both are excellent options, and

Bolted Connections In FEA – Four Levels Of Complexity

Bolts are one of the most common ways to connect parts together. They have a high strength capacity and they are great to use when disassembly is necessary. It is important to correctly model these when performing FEA, but the modeling approach can vary quite a bit. In this blog, we’ll examine four different levels

Heat Transfer In FEA – Conduction, Convection and Radiation

Heat transfer is a huge factor to consider in so many industries, including propulsion, electronics, manufacturing, and HVAC. There are three modes by which this can happen – conduction, convection, and radiation. In this blog, we will go through the basics of these modes and how we can implement them in Abaqus CAE. Conduction Conduction

Moment Of Inertia, Moment Of Area – What’s The Deal?

Isaac Newton defines inertia as the tendency of objects in motion to stay in motion, and objects at rest to stay at rest, unless an outside force changes its speed or direction. However, if you’ve been in the realm of mechanical design for any length of time, you’ll likely have heard the term “moment of

Phase Diagrams In Materials Science – What Are They And Why Do They Matter?

Phase diagrams are essentially maps that illustrate the conditions under which different phases (solid, liquid, gas) of a substance coexist at equilibrium. They serve as valuable tools for scientists and engineers across various fields, including chemistry, physics, materials science and chemical engineering, enabling prediction of the states of matter under different conditions of temperature and
