Tips & Tricks

Here you will find articles on how to solve specific issues related to ESI's software solutions. Missing ESI products will be added progressively. Each article has a short abstract which is accessible to everyone. As logged users you can see the full article with all attached screenshots, and you can post comments related to each article.

Delta T Offset For Bowing Effect in Assembly Process
In case of butt joint of two plates, in reality, there is an eccentricity e between the neutral phase of bending and the centre of the tendon force caused by the weld which causes the typical horse saddle of a butt welded flat plate.. A functionality Delta T Offset  ...

Internal injection lines modeling
Internal injection lines on a shell model (i.e. made of internal element edges) are not supported by the parallel solver.

Coupling between PAM-FORM and PAM-RTM: multiple part mapping
Coupling between PAM-FORM 2G and PAM-RTM is done through a .DSY file. Thus, pre-forming process is simulated with PAM-FORM 2G and resulting fiber orientations that will affect permeabilities are transferred to PAM-RTM model setup.
