How will AI impact the role of engineers in 2023 and beyond? We asked OpenAI’s ChatGPT!

The internet is abuzz with excitement about ChatGPT, the new AI chatbot that allows you to interact with one of the world’s largest and most powerful AI models. Recent media coverage has ranged across the spectrum from hype to nope, but at LEAP we wanted to investigate further so we decided to go straight to the source – so we posed a series of questions directly to ChatGPT!

An Overview of Methods for Modelling Bolts in ANSYS

Bolted joints are commonly used to assemble mechanical structures. Modelling bolts for three-dimensional finite element applications has always been a tricky proposition because the details of bolt geometric features usually result in large model size and high computational cost. Therefore, efficient methods to model bolts are always desirable.   The approach to modelling bolts usually…
