Video : 60 minutes presentation and curated Q and A
Given a design, the big question is, who will carry out the FE analysis
If it is the designer:
- Is it more efficient to do this within a CAD embedded environment, or divert the task to an analysis focused environment?
- The answer will depend very much on the nature of the design and analysis process.
I have talked to hundreds of clients about these issues
- Their evolved solutions tend to have either FEA-centric or CAD-centric bias, dependent on their existing skill sets
- But there are enormous variations within these workflows
Many new technologies are emerging, or maturing
I still think the key is for the designer to be immersed in the analysis and design – use that CAD feature tree, FEA spiders and other methods
