NAFEMS Offers Online Events in Upcoming Days
Additive manufacturing, realism in multibody dynamics and free body diagrams are some of the featured topics for sessions.
April 16, 2020
NAFEMS will be offering some online events in the days to come, some of which are free of charge to interested viewers.
Friday, April 24: Talking Shop Series
Episode 4, hosted by Tony Abbey, will focus on everyone's favorite bit of theory, Mohr's Circle.
NAFEMS will kick off each session with a brief presentation on the subject from Tony, and thereafter, open up the floor for written questions and thoughts from you, the audience.
Monday, April 27: Member Webinar
Another opportunity is slated for Monday, April 27 (11 a.m. New York, 8 a.m. Los Angeles, 4 p.m. London). NAFEMS will host a member webinar titled “Introducing Realism in Multibody Dynamics: When MBD and FE Converge.”
Multibody dynamics is now used in the industry as a major design and analysis tool to model systems and subsystems. The trend has been to introduce more realism in MB simulation, thanks to the development of both special components, like advanced gear models, tires etc., but also thanks to the development of verticals and plug-ins dedicated to specific applications like gear box design or vehicle dynamics.
Inherent to this, the introduction of flexibility has been a continuous goal in MB models. Since linear flexible components have been part of MB technology, nonlinear effects have been more complicated to integrate due to the nature of the MB solvers and software.
This situation has changed drastically in a few years with the development of new methods. Multibody simulation and finite element method have started to converge to propose the “best of both worlds” to the users, NAFEMS organizers say.
