Student Project Summaries Managing the CAE Process2
Introduction
This material is best used after reading the book 
Managing The CAE Process 
. Access to HyperWorks software is not essential for you, the instructor. Of course, if you choose to solve the problems yourself before working withyour students, you will need HyperMesh, HyperView, the HyperView Player,the Batch Mesher, the GUI Toolkit and OptiStruct.This book describes 4 assignment problems that highlight differentapplications of HyperWorks. Each problem is independent, and is completein itself. Students may choose to do more than one, depending on theirinterest.To make best use of this material you will need a computer with a sound-card and speakers. Your computer should have a media-player program(such as Windows Media Player) and an Internet Browser that supportsJavaScript. The material can be copied to a server and accessed by clients. You can customize the HTML files to suit yourrequirements. After opening the file, double-click on any text to edit it. Use the
save changes 
 link on the left of your Browser window whenyou are finished.
Installation Instructions: 
1. Copy the folders to your computer or to your server. If you areworking on a server, it is a good idea to set the folders to “readonly” to prevent inadvertent modifications.2. The videos are best played in full-screen at a resolution of 1024 x768. You may need to install the
CamStudio Codec 
to view video onyour computer. To do this, right-click on the file
camcodec.inf 
andchoose
Install 
from the popup menu. You may need administratorprivileges to do this.3. Ensure that JavaScript is enabled on your browser.4. Each folder contains one HTML file. Double-click on it to open theinstructions.5. Data files are provided as relevant – IGES files, HM files, etc.6. In case you need support, contact your distributor or emailedu.support@altair.india.com
 
Student Project Summaries Managing the CAE Process3
Batch Meshing a Vehicle Frame Assembly
 Areas covered: 
 Automation of geometry-organization and mesh generation 
Use of multiple meshing-options and quality-criteria 
“What-if” meshing – creation of multiple meshes on the same component 
TCL scripts for advanced automation Software used: 
Batch Mesher 
HyperMesh 
Description of the Problem 
FEA is time consuming, and unless attention ispaid to details, the results can be horriblymisleading. Most large design-projects involve arepetitive procedure:
check whether the CAD models of itemsin the assembly have changed
if they have, create new FE meshes orcorrect out-of-date meshes
verify that these meshes satisfy pre-specified quality criteria
submit these meshes to the analyst forfurther processing (analysis and results-interpretation)CAD data is managed by designers. Many usefolders, while some use PDM or PLM systems(Product Data management and ProductLifecycle Management, respectively). Goingthrough the assembly structure, pickingcomponents which have changed, andgenerating the mesh to satisfy element quality-specifications is tedious, and error prone.Our goal is to use the Batch Mesher to automatethe process. Not only does this make it easier forthe designer to generate meshes of a specifiedquality, it even reduces scope for error by the
