Guest Lecture - 7th October 2016
Students of the Computational Mechanics course (ENME302) at Canterbury University received a second lecture from Greg Morehouse. The first snippets are an expansion of last week’s Boundary Conditions topic. Then this week’s topic was on singularities in Finite Element Analysis (FEA). One singularity which can occur is when stresses in sharp corners of models are theoretically infinite. As a result, stresses won't converge as mesh is refined more and more. Essentially it is mathematically equivalent to dividing by zero. Knowing where and how these occur during simulation helps to interpret FEA results accurately. The students appreciate the practical application that Greg brought to their theoretical studies.
Note the singularity video snippets aren’t up quite yet!
Greg also highlights again ways to not only be a better engineer, but a better employee, partner and person.
Enjoy the videos!
