Modeling Method for Complex Structure System in Finite Element Simulating Analysis


Article Preview

How to deal with the model is important in analyzing structure system with finite element method, because the rationality of model has direct relationship with veracity of simulation result. In this paper some simplify modeling methods are expatiated. And an approach is supposed that combine simplifying complex model and rigid-treating sub-component which make model more close to reality. In final, an instance of multi-type-element system structure is computed to prove the correctness of the method.
