Using Meshlines in HyperMesh

Topic details: A meshline is a line on the elements of a 2d (shell) mesh that is associated with the mesh by retaining information about where it enters and exits each shell element. Closed loop of meshlines can be used … Read More

Learning Video: HyperStudy

This short video demonstrates an effective process of calibrating multiple models using design of experiments (DoE) and optimization methods in HyperStudy. We applied this process to calibrate a ductile aluminum alloy modeled in RADIOSS block as an elasto-plastic material using … Read More

What is Frequency Response Analysis in Radioss

Topic details: Frequency Response Analysis is used to calculate the response of a structure subject to steady state oscillatory excitation. Typical applications are NVH (Noise, Vibration and Harshness) analyses of vehicles, rotating machinery and transmissions. The analysis is to compute … Read More

Map Thickness from Geometry to FE Model

Topic details: The new Mid-Mesh Thickness utility allows the automatic mapping of thickness from any legacy geometry to a representative FE model. There are several options to control how the thicknesses are applied to nodes, elements or properties plus auto-correction … Read More

Learning Video: Composites Modeling in HyperMesh

The video describes some of the features available in HyperMesh 11.0 in order to efficiently manage FE modeling of composites components. Capabilities include importing CPD data from CAD files, visualizing ply directions and properties, and 3D realistic ply thickness and … Read More
