SimAcademy Webinar Archive: Marc Global-Local Analysis
Local variations, such as geometry changes and mesh refinement, usually need a complete re-analysis of the model. If the changes have a negligible influence on the solution sufficiently far away from the changed region, only a local part can be analyzed using a global-local analysis, which is also called structural zooming. Marc structural zooming capability automates the global-local analysis to achieve a better resolution in local area where stress gradient is high or mesh has to be changed from shell to solid. In the Marc 2010 version, the global-local analysis has been expanded to allow global remeshing.
SimAcademy Webinar Archive: Adams - Vibration Analysis of Full Dynamic Systems
The study of vibration problems of full dynamic systems can be accomplished in different ways. MSC/MD_ADAMS Vibration is one of them; a system is linearized at a selected operating point and a forced vibration analysis is executed to determine the frequency content of the full system and the main vibration modes that are prevalent on the vibration problem being studied.
