Simulating Wind Load on a Sports Car’s Side Door and Mirror

May 27, 2021

Vroom vroom: In this blog post, we use large eddy simulation (LES) and structural analysis to analyze wind loads and airflow on the door and side mirror of a sports car driving at high speeds.

What Is the Difference Between Plane Stress and Plane Strain?

May 20, 2021

We go over the formulations and constitutive models that you can use to study plane stress, plane strain, and generalized plane strain in your solid mechanics problems.

Which Radiation Interface Should I Use for My Heat Transfer Model?

March 4, 2021

Compared to the mechanisms of heat transfer by conduction and convection, heat transfer by radiation has unique characteristics. How should you account for radiation in your heat transfer models?
