Description

Description

To obtain better simulation results, a systematic and powerful mesh is key. While some finite element analysis (FEA) software products have advanced meshing tools to help obtain a superior analytical model, applying these tools can be complicated. Using the guidelines and tricks taught in this session upfront, during your CAD modeling for simulation with Autodesk software, you can develop a better mesh more efficiently and obtain accurate and precise results. This class will explain first how to recognize mesh qualities, then how to use CAD modeling techniques to obtain a refined mesh more efficiently, saving time and money in your analysis efforts.
