No Mesh, No Fuss

News A Mechanical Engineering Magazine article describes the use of meshless finite element analysis. Rather than basing the computational method on a discrete mesh, the algorithm works with the analytical CAD surfaces defining the model.

"Right now, CAD systems have one framework for geometry and materials distribution, and analysis systems have another for behavior," Subbarayan said. "We've provided a mathematical framework that unifies geometry, material distribution, and behavior."

In the future, Subbarayan and his fellow researchers would like their software to be able to analyze for the coupled physical phenomena that are often a part of real-life engineering problems.
