Static Condensation – FEM Analysis

Background Theory With “condensation” is indicated a procedure adopted for the structural analysis to carry out a matrix of stiffness and load boundary conditions of a detailed finite model (DFEM), starting from a raw global finite model (GFEM). The DFEM … Continue reading

Contact simulation with MSC/Nastran

Linear Gap The linear GAP is the simpliest contact form used in Nastran simulations. Linear GAP can solve a large class of problems like hole bearing, heel-toe interaction, fitting contacts. Linear, therefore does not include frition, large displacements, and material … Continue reading

Non linear Buckling with FEM approach

Buckling analysis assesses the stability characteristics of a structure. An accurate solution to a buckling problem requires more efforts than just following a numerical procedure, there are a number of factors to consider before a buckling solution can be accepted … Continue reading

Buckling of an imperfection-sensitive cylindrical shell

Buckling of an imperfection-sensitive cylindrical shell (EXTRACTED FROM ABAQUS GUIDE) This example serves as a guide to performing a postbuckling analysis using Abaqus for an imperfection-sensitive structure. A structure is imperfection sensitive if small changes in an imperfection change the … Continue reading
