If you are involved in any type of numerical analysis, the chances are that you
will need to generate a mesh or grid on complex geometry at some point. If this
an occassional requirement or you do not have the tools (or time) to create
accurate yet efficient meshes to solve your problems, why not let us do the work
for you? |
Using the latest meshing technology within ANSYS ICEM-CFD, AI*Environment &
ANSYS Paramesh, Wilde FEA offer a complete grid generation service for FEA, CFD,
Boundary Element or any other discretised methods. You can either provide your
own CAD as a starting point or allow us to generate both the underlying geometry
& the mesh, including paramteric studies if required. We can also modify legacy
meshes to improve quality or accomodate changes in geometry.
Previous meshing projects undertaken have ranged from a few hours to months.
All types of structured & unstructured meshes can be generated, from shells to
tetrahedral & hexahedral elements. The completed mesh can be exported in a
solver format of your choice, including metrics on mesh quality as requested. As
with our other FEA & CFD services, all meshing projects are undertaken in line
with our ISO9001 quality standard.
Typical meshing applications & services include:
Fixed Price Consulting - A high quality mesh can be generated at a fixed price
on either your own CAD or geometry that we have created from scratch. Most
native & neutral geometry formats are accepted.
Subcontract Services - If you prefer, a Wilde FEA engineer can work on-site to
supplement your current CAE team.
Extensive Solver Support - Meshes can be exported to over 100 popular FEA & CFD
codes, including NASTRAN, ABAQUS, ANSYS, LS-DYNA, FLUENT, STAR-CD & ANSYS CFX.
Geometry Healing - Mesh generation problems are often caused by poorly defined
geometry. We can fix geometry errors & our patch-independent meshing tools
ensure that the final mesh is not affected by cracks, holes & thin slivers.
Surfacing / Midplane Extraction - Solid model meshing of "thin" parts is
generally not suitable for accurate FEA. Powerful midplane extraction
capabilities, including variable thickness, enable us to generate superior shell
100% Pure or Hybrid Meshes - 100% hexahedral meshes can be generated for
demanding FEA & CFD applications, including LS-DYNA explicit simulations. Hybrid
meshing is available for mixed tetrahedral/hexahedral element structures and
also the use of boundary layer prisms in CFD.
Mesh Morphing - Even if you already have an existing mesh we can help. The
surface of the mesh can be extracted & converted back to geometry as the basis
of a new, superior mesh. Alternatively, we can morph your original mesh to
improve quality and generate rapid shape changes while retaining the exisiting
connectivity & boundary conditions.
STL/Faceted Surface Handling. - Faceted surface data, as commonly obtained from
scanning & rapid prototyping applications, can be cleaned up & meshed with solid
or surface elements as required.
Combined Consulting & Training - Learning how to mesh geometry quickly yet
effectively can be difficult and takes time even if standard training courses
are attended. Our combined consulting & training option enables you to learn
efficient meshing techniques on your actual parts. Details on standard training
courses are found here.
