Topology Optimization Using Scan&Solve Pro

             In many cases, some aspects of a design need to be balanced to create the best part possible. These aspects can include weight and cost along with the displacement and safety factor when loaded. In this experiment, loading conditions for a bracket are simulated to find the optimal design by removing as much material as possible. The only limitations used here are to keep the danger level below 1 and the maximum displacement below 0.015 inches. This is because the bracket shouldn’t…See More

Validating the Strength of a Swim Platform Using Scan&Solve Pro

        Scan & Solve Pro provides the ability to do static stress simulations on designs for your product. This is beneficial for designing, as well as simply finding the maximum loads the structure can handle. You can test many different loading conditions, which can be beneficial to find the weakest area of the model for each condition. The results can be used to optimize the shape of your design and help with material selection. In this demonstration, a swim platform was analyzed to find…See More

Simulation and Analysis of the FIU Bridge Collapse

NOTE: This is an engineering exercise looking at the FIU Bridge as an interesting application of Scan&Solve ONLY.  We are not bridge designers.  Theories presented here must be tempered by the limitations inherent in the geometric detail, material assumptions, and mathematical models being used.Introduction:               On March 15, 2018, a bridge in Florida collapsed during construction killing 6 people with 9 people also injured. The bridge was designed to be 274 feet in length with a…See More
