This example shows a 2D plane stress model of a thin tapered cantilever. Different boundary and load scenarios are examined. It is demonstrated how to apply and how to evaluate different load and constraint groups. Resulting stresses are compared to NAFEMS benchmark values and they are found to be in good agreement.
This model, dealing with the current and potential distribution around one pair of electrodes, demonstrates how to synchronize and modify geometry in Creo Parametric by using the LiveLink interface.
This model couples the Heat Transfer in Solids, Solid Mechanics and Geometrical Optics interfaces to compute the effect of thermal expansion of optical components on the interference pattern displayed by a Michelson interferometer.
A metallic cylindrical rod is hidden inside a spherical dielectric shell and its orientation is unknown. By studying the polarization-dependent scattered field of a cylindrical object and performing a parametric sweep as a function of polarization angle, the rod is detected for the polarization angle where the scattered field is highest. The model uses a linearly polarized plane wave for the ...
Interfacial failure by delamination or debonding can be simulated with a Cohesive Zone Model (CZM). This example shows the implementation of a CZM with a bilinear traction-separation law. It is used to predict the mixed-mode softening onset and delamination propagation in a composite material.
This benchmark model computes the load-carrying capacity of a one dimensional hydrodynamic step bearing. The results are compared with analytic expressions obtained by solving the Reynolds equations directly in this simple case.
You can now use image data to represent 2D material distributions or to identify regions with different materials by their color or gray scale. Images used in this way can have many origins such as scanning electron microscope (SEM), computed tomography (CT), or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). An important application of image import is for easy computation of equivalent volume-averaged ...
This model demonstrates how a nonlinear equation system can be setup to solve for the eigenfrequencies of a symmetric laser cavity. The model uses the bidirectional formulation of the Electromagnetic Waves, Beam Envelopes physics interface. The computed eigenfrequencies are verified with values from analytical expressions.
When the diameter of a pipe suddenly increases, the area available for flow increases. Fluid with relatively high velocity will decelerate into a relatively slow moving fluid. Depending on the Reynolds number, this can cause turbulence and much of the excess in kinetic energy is converted into heat and therefore wasted. If the change of the cross-section is gradual, the kinetic energy can be ...
