4 Reasons to use Design Simulations to Improve Equipment Fabrication 

4 Reasons to use Design Simulations to Improve Equipment Fabrication  | Mechanical Engineering & Design | Scoop.it

New products must be tested for their strength, functionality and safety, before they are distributed in the market. It is however difficult and time-consuming to create prototypes by fabricating parts and then running tests. This is where simulation tools like finite element analysis (FEA) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) can assist in reducing the test time and making the process more efficient.

Challenges for the Digital Twin concept

Challenges for the Digital Twin concept | Mechanical Engineering & Design | Scoop.it

For a successful implementation of a digital twin concept, the key is to first assist and support small suppliers in adopting a digital approach. Looking at the survey data mentioned earlier, there is a need for organizations to transform their design operations to completely 3D and get rid of 2D drawings. The Digital Manufacturing and Design Innovation Institute (DMDII) is making efforts in this direction through a U.S. federally funded R&D organization that recently issued a project call to demonstrate technologies for digital twins from supply chain participants.

Use Shell Elements for Finite Element Analysis of Thin-Walled Parts

Use Shell Elements for Finite Element Analysis of Thin-Walled Parts | Mechanical Engineering & Design | Scoop.it

Performing finite element analyses using shell elements for thin-walled parts is often the best approach to save computational time. However, it is equally important to have good knowledge and experience with using shell elements to avoid erratic results from simulation. This is necessary because stresses in shell elements are captured differently as compared to solid ones.
