Use of SFE CONCEPT in Developing FEA Models without CAD 2000-01-2706

What is described is a new tool for creating parametric, concept-level FEA body models without waiting for geometry created in a CAD system. This has the obvious advantage of putting CAE in a position to lead the design activity instead of reacting to it. The process for creating the concept FEA models will be described along with a verification test case in which crash and stiffness results from the concept modeler are compared with FEA results created in the more traditional way using CAD data.
