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!
Welding is a commonly used method that plays a crucial role in the safety, structural integrity, and durability of many fabricated structures. Learn about the significant new features in Ansys Mechanical 2022 R1 which greatly aide the preparation of FEA models involving welded structures and will save you many days of model preparation time.
Learn how the new Batch Connections in Mechanical enables efficient meshing of large beams and shell structures – significantly faster and with a better quality mesh. This new patent-pending technique replaces the tedious and time-consuming approach using ‘shared topology’.
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…
