Multiscale Analysis: A General Overview and Its Applications in Material Design

Posted by MultiMechanics on Aug 1, 2018 8:00:00 AM

Multiscale modeling is a broadly used term to describe any situation where a physical problem is solved by capturing a system's behavior and important features at multiple scales, particularly multiple spatial and/or temporal scales. Applications for multiscale analysis include fluid flow analysis, weather prediction, operations research, and structural analysis, to name a few.

The Anatomy of a Composite Microstructure

Posted by MultiMechanics on Jun 20, 2018 8:00:00 AM

Microstructural modeling is often viewed as an extraneous activity when analyzing the behavior of composites. Many engineers use the "system" properties as the inputs for their part design without considering what contributes to that overall system response.

3 Reasons Why You Should Perform Multiscale Finite Element Analysis

Posted by MultiMechanics on Jun 13, 2018 8:00:00 AM

Many companies that develop new composite materials are surprised when their product does not perform as expected during the physical testing and certification process. In addition to the many years wasted on developing the material, companies often spend more than $50M on developing and testing a single new material concept.

A Brief History of Finite Element Analysis - Part II

Posted by MultiMechanics on May 16, 2018 8:00:00 AM

As we mentioned in Part I, the history of Finite Element Analysis is deeply intertwined with the evolution of computing. It seems only fitting that the FEA software used to design the world's most cutting-edge products should have the most cutting-edge computational techniques at its disposal. From the early punch days of the 60's through the 2000's, FEA companies have found unique ways to take advantage of the ever-changing computer landscape.
