Heat Transfer and Thermal Stress Analysis (cast copper furnace)
The CAE software employed is the open-source suite Code_Aster. The numerical model consists of the structure finite element mesh (shell elements) and the inner refractory brickwork finite element mesh (solid elements), coupled through contact algorithms.
Modal analysis of a engine thermal shell. Simulation performed with code_aster. Analysis of the vibration modes of the plate. The objective was to avoid resonances between shell modeshapes and engine excitation frequencies.
Room Ventilation / 2D Coupled Simulation: CFD + Heat Transfer
Interpolation for molding application
The aim of this project was to build from scratch a multidimensional interpolation tool. The client uses it to predict the shape of a flexible mold controlled by a series of motor/piston actuators.
Metal Stamping and Springback
Demonstration of the open-source tool Code_Aster capabilities to simulate structural problems with high non-linearities: large displacements, elasto-plasticity and contact. The simulation show the structural spring-back of the component, or elastic deformation recovery.
