Techno posting... FSI modelling a marine collision using Abaqus CEL.. no bouncing stuff this time..

Posted by Laurence Marks

So I'd promised a technically focused blog and suggested that it might be about bouncing bombs... Well the bouncing bombs are still a work in progress. In fact what I'm getting currently is really, really encouraging, but I'm now investigating different approaches to mesh definition and adaptivity and how these effect results quality. The results are generally pretty convincing when compared to the films I've seen, but I'll save the update on that for another time. (As usual a simple test model built for fun has spawned a whole strand of out of hours work.)

Getting out of phase.. SCC Part 2, Whats new in Abaqus 6.14, and the NAFEMS UK Conference

Posted by Laurence Marks

So sometimes I struggle to find things to blog about, then 3 come along at once.

So to finish the SCC stuff. So essentially the SCC content from DS was all about the 3D experience platform. Which as I have said before in this blog looks increasingly interesting. We are getting increasingly up to speed with this new technology, and there are already areas such as hi speed visualisation where the technical leap forward offers us a real improvements in productivity and presentation. Some pretty impressive meshing technologies coupled to the visualisation indicate a really impressive direction of travel, and one which compliments the current CAE based solutions.
