Conduction is the most common form of heat transfer (https://www.fea-solutions.co.uk/heat-transfer-analysis/) and occurs within a solid material. The temperature gradient dictates the direction and rate of heat transfer by conduction. Heat energy will always flow from hot to cold. If the temperature gradient is large, then the...

A heat transfer analysis determines the temperature distribution in a system subjected to thermal loads. This means, results from a heat transfer analysis are temperatures. It can be either steady-state or transient, see: https://www.fea-solutions.co.uk/steady-state-vs-transient-analysis/. Heat is transferred by: - Conduction     (https://www.fea-solutions.co.uk/conduction/) - Convection     (https://www.fea-solutions.co.uk/convection/) - Radiation   ...

In a steady-state process, the response of the system, whether it is stress, temperature, or otherwise, does not change over time. In a transient analysis, this response is time-dependent. All real-world processes have both a steady-state and a transient phase, but depending on the required...

The Heat Affected Zone (HAZ) is the area of base material which is not melted but has nevertheless had its microstructure and properties changed as a result of the welding. The strength in the HAZ is reduced for many metallic alloys, but in particular for aluminium....

Aluminium Alloys are used in a wide range of engineering structures. These alloys have varied mechanical properties and are classified to a number system (ANSI) or by names indication their alloying constituents (DIN and ISO). Through this system, the appropriate alloy can be selected according...

In common usage, the terms mass and weight are interchangeable. However, in physics and engineering, mass and weight refer to two different quantities and should not be confused. Mass is a physical property of a body and is a measure of its “resistance to acceleration” (inertia)...

In an FEA simulation, two different solution methods can be used, implicit or explicit. They both have their benefits and there are types of analyses that are more suited to one or the other. An implicit solver solves the unknowns in the numerical equations by the...
