Development of High-Speed Auto-Mesh Program for FEM Analysis 911273
Authors have developed a function that automatically judges the relation among the individual adjoining surfaces constituting the frame body and make a finite-element model of a motorcycle frame body by generating a mesh with all the surfaces together.
By integrating this function with the three-dimensional CAD system, a high-speed and simple auto-mesh system has been materialized.
This has made it possible to substantially shorten the time required for preparation of a finite-element model and apply CAE at an early stage of design of complicated-shaped constructions.
