Meshing Coarse FE-model from Aveva-Marine geometry (Tribon XML)

Mon, 11/10/2014 - 15:46


As an addition to our previous blog, we will now demonstrate Hypermesh capability to defeature detailed geometry to obtain more challenging coarse FE-mesh.

The key in process is the correct work-flow and a few cool tricks with TCL-scripts. Aveva-model contains lots of small details that usually are too cumbersome to defeature and coarse FE-mesh is created from scratch instead of using Aveva-model. Hypermesh provides great tools* to defeature these and existing geometry can be used and this will save a lot of working hours (=$$$).


See video with this link.

*In demo-workflow we mainly use tools provided with the software. Some functionalities we have enhanced a bit with TCL-scripts and lastly shown beam creation is provided by Erik Magnemark, Altair.
