## Thermo-Mechanical Bending of a Beam

## Thermo-Mechanical Bending of a Beam

Coupled thermo-mechanical multiphysics simulation of bending of a cantilever beam. The left side of the beam is fixed to a solid wall while the top side is subjected to an elevated external temperature through natural convection. The lower and left side are continuously held at the initial zero temperature. A …

## Multiple Scale Modeling for Predictive Material Deformation Analysis

A multi-scale modeling and simulation study using FEATool Multiphysics to investigate stretching and deformation of a ligament under uniaxial tension is presented in the following. The study demonstrates how the FEATool simulation software can be used by students and non-experts to perform simulations and quickly get …

## Piezo Electric Bending of a Beam

## Piezo Electric Bending of a Beam

Multiphysics simulation of piezoelectric bending of a laminated beam as for example can be found in actuators for MEMS (micro electro mechanical systems) devices. The model features coupled plane-stress and electrostatics physics modes with equations modified to account for the anisotropic piezo-electric coupling. The …

## Stretching of a Thin Plate with a Hole

## Stretching of a Thin Plate with a Hole

This example is a well known benchmark test case from structural mechanics, a thin plate with a circular hole in the center is subjected to a load and stretched along the horizontal axis. The plate is thin enough to satisfy the two dimensional plane stress approximation, and since both the problem and solution will be …

## Topology Optimization

## Topology Optimization

This is an advanced model example showing how topology optimization can be implemented and modeled with FEATool. The model has been developed and kindly shared to us by Prof. Shintaro Yamasaki at the Department of Mechanical Engineering of Osaka University [1]. In contrast to standard simulations where the domain and …
