Scan&Solve Fusion (WIP) extends the power and simplicity of Scan&Solve to bonded assemblies…
"I assume that IGA refers to "isogeometric analysis". A short answer is no, it is not similar. The idea behind IGA is to use the same representation (often, NURBSs) for both geometry and analysis. In contrast,…"
"It is impossible to tell what you are trying to do without the boundary conditions (restraints, loads).
But you are trying to analyze a >5m structure that is 4mm thick, with solid elements. A 5m x 5m square sheet is 25…"
"Francesco, it is hard to tell without looking at your model and settings. You may be running into high aspect ratio problem (see Large size to detail ratio under limitations in documentation). If you can post your…"
"James, to answer your question, yes, the current version of Scan&Solve works only with single solids. Depending on your assumptions, it may be Ok to treat assembly as a single solid, but obviously it would only be a…"
"You are analyzing a very thin shell model using 3D elements in Scan&Solve. It is possible that your resolution is not high enough to deal with such a high size/thickness ratio, as explained in the documentation. But it is…"
"Good question. The answer is somewhat complicated, but a simplified version would look something like this. The two most time consuming steps in the solver is (1) assembly of the linear systems of equations, which involves…"
Intact Solutions, a spinoff from University of Wisconsin - Madison, is developing next generation tools for engineering modeling, analysis and simulation, such as Scan&Solve. This is a ground floor opportunities to join a rapidly growing…
