Course 1
HyperMesh for FEA, Plastic and Sheet Metal Application

Basics FEA

In this module, we focus on the fundamentals of FEA. FEA is a generic technique used to solve

In this module, we will discuss the math behind FEA, along with the following topics

  • FEA discretization
  • Element types and their significance
  • H and P refinement techniques

Introduction to HyperMesh

HyperMesh is one of the most popular Finite Element Preprocessor used to generate meshes
of complex model. In this module, you will cover topics such as:

  • Overview of Pre-Processors and their importance in FEA Processes
  • Primary introduction to GUI of HyperMesh, toolbars and basic operations

Key Geometric tools

While dealing with complex 3D components, it is important to remove small features and holes that are inevitable from the CAD model creation stand-point. We will introduce you to the Batch Mesher Macro that will help in accomplishing this.

Node and edge creation

Nodes and Edges are the fundamental entities in any meshing software. A professional Mesher demonstrates a high level of skill in creating, editing and manipulating nodes and edges. The course will help you accomplish the same

Connectors

Sometimes, meshes are made with both 2D and 3D meshes that are interspersed. Connectors help the computer understand that the interface is between two different kinds of meshes. Connectors are time-saving features which are a must in large models. In addition to this, connectors offer a way to let the computer know that two components have been seam welded.

Meshing – 2D, 3D, 1D and mesh quality Check

In this section, you will cover:

  • Using an edited geometry to generate mid-surface and appropriate 2D mesh with regards to mesh flow, trias and mesh size, by various methods
  • Using the geometry to create 3D mesh using various methods
  • Meaning of mesh quality and ways to control and improve it
  • Types of 1D elements, their specifications and creation
  • Exporting a meshed model from HyperMesh in the specified solver format

Mesh Morphing techniques 

When FEA analysis is carried out on a part, the FEA analyst immediately realizes the areas where the problem exists and many times they exactly know what design needs to change. However, in a process-oriented company, the FEA analyst communicates this to the Design Engineer and waits for them to do the modification. HyperMesh can be used to disrupt this by offering a suite of Mesh morphing techniques. 

Basics of Decks and Macros (TCL scripting)

Tools like HyperMesh and ANSA create meshes that are used by solvers like Radioss and LS-DYNA. The solvers need information in a specific format called solver decks. Here detailed information on Mesh Structure, Solver and Simulation settings are provided.
