FE Model Tab

Meshed geometry is ready for solver analysis once suitable material, property, loading and boundary conditions are applied to the model. Reading in and writing out the model in a pre-processor should not result in any loss of data, change in the quality of the mesh, model, and so on. Also, from a customer perspective, having full coverage for the “most used keywords based on analyses” is important to get an accurate result.

This facility should help you cover the above aspects; further details of the same are given in each of the options. Special cases (for LS-DYNA) and input/output operations (for most of the solvers) using HyperMesh and HyperCrash are covered. Checking the quality of the model through the model checker capability further augments the verification and validation process. Provisions are also given to check the accuracy of data from the solution point of view using Check run, which triggers the solver (you must have a solver license) for the model check run.

Reports are generated at different levels to validate the model, including the basic model check run or zero millisecond run, for crash solvers.
